Dean Lombardi was very clear about his goals for the Kings after being hired as the team’s new General Manager in the spring of 2006. The mandate was simple, build from the net out. With that in mind, we’ll begin our Dev Camp 2012 preview series in the crease and work our way up to [...]
Most of the LA Kings top prospects will arrive in town on Thursday, in advance of the team’s 2012 Development Camp getting underway on Friday. As for the roster of attendees, a few things are known – feisty forward Brandon Kozun has ‘graduated’ from the group and won’t be coming in this year, while Tyler [...]

Given the words and actions of LA Kings coach Terry Murray over the last few weeks, it at least appears like forward Scott Parse may be hanging on by a thread.
