First round of cuts from LA Kings 2013 training camp

As we first announced on twitter earlier this morning, today is cut down day for the LA Kings. The team has formally announced the following players have been returned to their junior clubs:

Forwards:

#79 – Justin Auger – Guelph Storm, OHL – fourth round draft pick (103rd overall) in 2013
#58 – Matt Campagna – Sudbury Wolves, OHL – free agent invitee
#59 – Dominik Kubalik – Sudbury Wolves, OHL – seventh round (191st overall) in 2013

Defensemen:

#40 – Nick Ebert – Windsor Spitfires, OHL – seventh round draft pick (211th overall) in 2012
#62 – Zac Leslie – Guelph Storm, OHL – sixth round (178th overall) in 2013
#56 – Kurtis MacDermid – Owen Sound Attack, OHL – free agent signing in 2012
#39 – Marcus McIvor – North Bay Battalion, OHL – camp invitee

Goalies:

#65 – Patrik Bartosak – Red Deer Rebels, WHL – fifth round draft pick (146th overall) in 2013

This means that following his impressive performance in Sunday night’s pre-season game, 2013 draftee Valentin Zykov will be sticking around a little longer.

It’s also worth noting the Manchester Monarchs are scheduled to open their training camp on Tuesday, September 24 in New Hampshire. As such, we’re expecting the majority of players who will be returned to the AHL to be announced sometime around Friday.

    Not surprised Bartosak was cut, but was thinking he might stick around training camp a while longer for some extra coaching.

  3. Was #78 Cam Maclise cut as well. I haven’t seen or heard of him in a while

    • Not yet. Only the players listed were cut. Next round of cuts should be in the next 48 hours or so. Maclise is on a tryout contract though, so there isn’t much of a hurry to send him back somewhere. The team can take a long look at him if they choose.
