LA Kings 2019 Development Camp – Official Schedule and Roster

Hockey returns to Los Angeles on Tuesday, June 25.

Well, in a somewhat limited form.

After a travel day on Monday, the Kings will kick off their annual summer Development Camp with on-ice sessions beginning Tuesday. It’s roughly a week long event, allowing prospects an opportunity to train at the team’s facility in El Segundo, as well as interact with various members of the organization’s coaching staff.

The roster will largely be comprised of players acquired from April 2017 to present – including all (or at least the vast majority) of players selected at the 2019 NHL Draft.

Basically, it’s hockey summer school.

Additionally, the camp also serves as phase I of an evaluation period leading into Rookie Camp, which takes place in September. That’s set to begin at Toyota Sports Center just after Labor Day and will culminate in the NHL Rookie Faceoff in Anaheim. Last year’s inaugural tournament included top prospects from the Ducks, Kings, Vegas Golden Knights, Arizona Coyotes, San Jose Sharks, and Colorado Avalanche. The same six teams are scheduled to square off this year in Irvine at the all new Great Park Ice facility. We’ve heard the event will likely run September 7-10. However, nothing has been confirmed just yet.

In the more immediate future, the showcase event at Development Camp will be the Kings annual In The Pipeline Scrimmage game on Thursday, June 27 at 6pm.

OTHER NOTES / UPDATES:

* Keep in mind, there will be several additions to come, including both this year’s draft picks, as well as a handful of non-drafted camp invitees.

* AEG-owned Eisbären Berlin of Germany usually have at least one representative present. Corey Neilson, head coach of Berlin’s minor league affiliate (Lausitzer Fuchse) has already been confirmed as attending.

* Gabe Vilardi (2017 RD1, OHL) will not be attending due to ongoing back issues.

* We are still awaiting final word on the status of European prospect Bulat Shafigullin (2018 RD3, Russia) re: his participation at Dev Camp in Los Angeles. It sounds like they’re trying to work out visa issues.
