Earlier this summer we kicked off a new series here on MayorsManor, where we allowed several of the Kings draft picks to offer some Peer Evaluations on other LA prospects they had played against. In the first edition we focused on guys with recent college hockey experience. Now, with Rookie Camp just a week away, we turn [...]
As dozens of the Kings’ top prospects begin descending upon LA in advance of the team’s 2013 Rookie Camp, it sure feels like it’s been a long time coming. After all, two years have passed since the organization has been able to hold their annual Training Camp prequel.
Sure, there’s been a pair of Development Camps (2012 and earlier this summer), [...]

Using a slight twist on our popular Word Association articles, where we have NHL players talk about their opponents, here we asked some of the Kings prospects who play college hockey to evaluate their peers.
Involved in the conversations were:
Jonny Brodzinski – forward, St. Cloud State University – fifth round pick in 2013
Nic Dowd – center, [...]
Just clearing out the notebook here with a collection of thoughts from two opposite ends of the blueline being patrolled by Kings prospects – Derek Forbort was the team’s first round pick in 2010, while Nick Ebert was the overall last player selected at the 2012 NHL Draft.
Here’s a few nuggets from each guy…
- Ebert on [...]
He’s arrived. Maybe that’s the headline that should follow him around for a while.
This season, Tyler Toffoli went from top ranked prospect in the Kings organization to seeing time on the team’s second line in the NHL playoffs.
It’s been a somewhat linear development, with a consistent upward trajectory, compared to most other players though. He scored 57 [...]
In the world of real estate, it’s all about location, location, location.
For Kings prospect Joel Lowry that could be why you rarely hear about him.
It has nothing to do with his skill or his size, but simply a matter of where he plays.
He’s not in one of the three major Canadian junior leagues, nor does he [...]
If you’re into long-shot and underdog stories, then Kurtis MacDermid is your guy.
The 6-foot-4 defenseman went from playing all of nine games his rookie year in the OHL to being passed over by every NHL team at the 2012 Draft. And why not, nobody knew he was and had hardly see him play.
However, that didn’t stop [...]
Nick Ebert is a prospect on the rise. Mark it down and take note.
As mentioned when we kicked off this year’s Development Camp Preview series, there will be at least two spots up for grabs in our next edition of the Kings Top Ten Prospect Rankings. Tyler Toffoli and Jake Muzzin both made the jump [...]
We’ve already heard from several defensemen and forwards who are attending this week’s Kings Development Camp in Los Angeles. But, let’s not forget the goalies.
Along with center Nic Dowd, both products of the 2009 NHL Draft, JF Berube is returning for his fifth camp.
However, two years ago he wasn’t able to participate in full drills because [...]
