LA Kings Prospect Tracker, Several Eliminated From Playoffs

Mistele Matt OHL OshawaThis is a big week coming up for several of the Kings’ prospects playing junior hockey, as quite a few could begin play in the second round of the OHL and QMJHL playoffs. Additionally, this coming Saturday could be a memorable one for a second-year defenseman at the University of North Dakota, provided his team first wins their game on Thursday. For a complete breakdown on what went down last week with all of the organization’s non-AHL prospects still playing, take a look at the updated tracker below.

MIKE AMADIO: Forward, North Bay Battalion (3rd round pick in 2014, OHL):

Regular season: 24 goals, 47 assists, plus-30, 18 PIM in 68 games played

Playoffs: 4 goals, 3 assists, plus-5, 2 PIM in four games played

In the final two games of North Bay’s series vs. Kingston, Amadio scored one goal. His goal helped contribute to North Bay’s Game 4 win and sweep over Kingston (which also eliminated another Kings prospect from the playoffs – more on that further down the page).

North Bay wins series 4-0.

He stopped by MayorsManor to talk about things in an interview posted here. Kings assistant GM Rob Blake, who went to Minnesota to meet with Brodzinski prior to his signing, shared thoughts on L.A’s newly signed prospect here. And not to be outdone, his former college roommate – and soon to be Manchester Monarchs teammate – Nic Dowd dished on Brodzinski here.
