Johnson Kings draft 2014

The Kings added their fifth prospect of the draft when they nabbed Steven Johnson with the 120th pick of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Johnson is an American defenseman who played in the USHL with the Omaha Lancers last season. Johnson scored five goals and had 26 assists in 56 games played with the Lancers.

Johnson is an over-aged player, continuing the drafting trend by the Kings scouting staff to draft a player who is not in their first year of eligibility. Johnson is committed to attend the University of Minnesota in the fall.
