His expected battle with Tyler Toffoli looks to be one of the key stories to watch this September.
Prior to the Kings recent Development Camp in Los Angeles, Kozun proclaimed himself ‘ready for the NHL’ in an interview here on MayorsManor.
He also spoke about the challenges of physical play in the AHL in a follow-up piece here.
Over the weekend, Kozun’s Manchester teammate, Rich Clune, had this to say about him when I asked ‘How good is Brandon Kozun?’…
Clune – “He’s got skills. Time will tell with him, right? I’m not as small as him. He’s a small guy. So, it will be a tough battle for him to prove that he can play everyday against big guys. But, that kid has a lot of game and he’s got some fire inside him. So, he’s got a shot.”
