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.

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.
