VIDEO: LA Kings select Tanner Pearson in first round 2012 draft

As posted on twitter, here are a few quick notes on Pearson – he played 60 games for Barrie (OHL) this season, posting 91 points (37-54=91), 37 penalty minutes and a plus-21 rating. The 6-foot, 198-pound left wing is originally from Kitchener and he won a bronze medal with Team Canada‬ at the 2012 World Junior tourney. Because he’ll be 20 in a few months, he should be AHL eligible next season.

Follow along on twitter tomorrow, we’ll have real-time news and notes from rounds 2-7 of the draft.
