POLL: Which rookie helped his cause the most?

Some will say, ‘oh, it was only an exhibition game!’

Well, first off, you should reply and say, ‘actually it was two exhibition games.’ Then, follow it up with, ‘they mean a lot to the rookies trying to earn a spot in the NHL.’

Coming into camp, it looked like the only real roster competition would be among the forwards – with Tyler Toffoli and Andrei Loktionov being among the top names under consideration.

Additionally, with Drew Doughty still not signed, coach Terry Murray is having to take a longer than expected look at several of the team’s defensive prospects.

All said, which rookie do you think helped his case the most last night?



Poll closes Friday at 11am PST.

For your reference, post-game notes from the Kings-Coyotes games last night are available here: Game one in Phoenix and Game two in LA.
