Notes on three additional Kings picks at Sunday’s NHL Draft

In addition to the players we’ve already posted profiles on, the LA Kings made three additional selections at the NHL Draft on Sunday…

FIFTH ROUND: Goalie Patrik Bartosak (146th overall)

– He was the WHL Goalie of the Year this season playing for the Red Deer Rebels of the WHL. In 55 games, the 20-year-old native of the Czech Republic posted five shutouts with a 2.26 GAA and .935 save percentage. Standing 6-foot-1 and 187-pounds, he also played in nine playoff games for the Rebels and saw action in five games while representing his country at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship. H’s the nephew of Radek Bonk, who played 14 seasons in the NHL (note: Bonk was traded to the Kings in June of 2004, but never played a game for LA, as he was dealt to Montreal the same day via a second transaction).

– Daryl Evans interviewed Bartosak shortly after he was selected by the Kings…

SIXTH ROUND: Defenseman Zac Leslie (178th overall)

– A native of Ottawa, he’s played two seasons for the Guelph Storm (the former junior team of Dustin Brown and Drew Doughty). A few hours earlier, the Kings also drafted his teammate, forward Justin Auger. The 19-year-old Leslie posted 40 points (12 goals, 28 assists) in 68 games this season. This was his second year of draft eligibility.

– From Sean Lafortune of The Prospects Blog

“His biggest asset is his ability to create offense off of the back end. He is at his best skating the puck up the ice, reading the play and making a strong decision with the puck. He is strong at gaining the opposition’s blueline and setting up an offensive play. He shows strong poise under pressure at the point on the power play…He is a strong skater who shows good four-way mobility. He accelerates well and often can skate the puck out of trouble in his own zone, or use his quick feet to create open ice for himself in the neutral zone…Leslie’s biggest area of development is his consistency At times he seemed to struggle with his ability to bring his best effort from game to game. “

SEVENTH ROUND: Left Wing Dominik Kubalik (191st overall)

– Another native of the Czech Republic, Kubalik is a 17-year-old who played for the Sudbury Wolves. This past season he recorded 34 points (17 goals, 17 assists) in 67 games played. It was the 6-foot-1, 181-pounder’s first OHL campaign.  His older brother Tomas is a prospect with the Columbus Blue Jackets.
