VIDEO: 2013 Draft preview with LA Kings top amateur scouts

Earlier today we published an in-depth look at what Kings GM Dean Lombardi may be looking to do at this weekend’s NHL Draft – including ideas for his ten picks, a few trades that will probably go down and an overview of some of the players/positions he’ll likely be targeting.

Now, courtesy of KingsVision, here’s a pair of interviews that took place this afternoon with LA’s Co-Directors of Amateur Scouting, Mike Futa and Mark Yannetti. They’ll serve as two of Lombardi’s key lieutenants at the draft table on Sunday and will heavily influence which players are ultimately selects.
