Updated: LA Kings Development Camp Roster – July 2013

Tyler Toffoli LA Kings MayorsManor
Earlier this week we posted a preliminary roster for the Kings’ upcoming Development Camp and it was pretty much dead on with today’s official release – with one notable exception, Tyler Toffoli is coming.

The list also confirms what MayorsManor first reported in May, the Kings were planning on signing 2010 draft pick Maxim Kitsyn right after legally allowed to do so come July 1st. For those unfamiliar, he’s quite different than most Russian forwards you’ll see in the NHL. Kitsyn, a left wing, plays more like a power forward. He’s also been to North America before, having played in the OHL for a few months and playing for Russia in the CHL’s Super Series.

Noticably missing from the list is 2013 fourth round pick Hudson Fasching – no word yet on why he won’t be attending.

Here’s the complete roster for Development Camp 2013…

Forwards:
#64 – Andy Andreoff – third round (80th overall) in 2011
#79 – Justin Auger – fourth round (103rd overall) in 2013
#63 – Jonny Brodzinski – fifth round (148th overall) in 2013

This camp will serve as part of the evaluation process for the next edition of the rankings, which should publish right before Rookie Camp opens in September. With at least two players graduating off that list, there will be some new names included next time around – perhaps even from the group attending Dev Camp.

As for the schedule, there will be separate groups for the forwards, defensemen and goalies running from 8:30-11:30am daily. Then, there will be a full session with all prospects starting around 3:15pm.

  1. Brian Summers says

    John,

    My educated guess on Hudson Fasching is he cannot participate because he is only 17 years old. He does not turn 18 until the end of the month.

  2. Do you know why Colin miller isn’t going to be there?

  3. Oh I guess I’m blind

  4. Regulate says

    Keep an eye out for Scott Sabourin, he scored 30 goals in 65 games in his final year in Juniors and can do this

      Lombardi had several positive things to say about the kid when he was in town a few months ago skating with the Black Aces. Loved his compete level.

  5. I am surprised there are only three invitees. Though it is high, I figured with our past two seasons, we would draw more looks and people wanting in. Finally.
