11 Kings prospects to join team for practice in LA on Wednesday

Joining the group will be Tyler Toffoli, one of the Kings top prospects, who’s Ottawa 67’s were also eliminated from the playoffs on Friday.

All 11 players are on their way to LA and will take to the ice on Wednesday at the Kings training facility in El Segundo.

If you’re wondering why Brandon Kozun wasn’t included in the group, he suffered a hip injury in the second game of Manchester’s first round series.  Although he continued to play until the Monarchs were eliminated, it’s best he gives his body some rest.

We’ll have much more with the prospects up later in the week.
