Info on LA Kings 4th Round Pick: Hudson Fasching


Kings GM Dean Lombardi used his third selection at the 2013 NHL Draft to pick up Hudson Fasching of the U.S. National Development Program.

He’s a 6-foot-2 right wing who was born in Wisconsin, but grew up in Minnesota. He’s also committed to the University of Minnesota beginning this coming season.

Over two years with the USNTDP he posted 32 points (11 goals and 21 assists) in 62 games.

He’ll join fellow Kings prospect Nick Ebert at Team USA’s Evaluation Camp in August, with hopes of making the 2014 World Junior Championship team.

His younger brother and sister were diagnosed with a rare disease (a mitochondrial disorder) that prevents them from communicating with others. Per Hudson, there was a one-in-h=four chance he could have been inflicted with the same disability.

Story from USA Hockey magazine here.

From Corey Pronman’s report for Hockey Prospectus:

“Fasching came into the season with expectations of being a first rounder, thanks to his good frame and multitude of offensive tools. His stock took a bit of a hit thanks to a somewhat disappointing season, but with his potential, he is still a noteworthy prospect. Fasching is a good skater, with a powerful first step. He skates well for a player who has already bulked up at such a young age. He is a tad over 200 pounds, with slightly above-average height. He does not shy away from the physical game, as he will make power moves to the net. He will, at times, compete hard, protecting the puck effectively. Still, his physical game can come and go. He has a very solid set of hands, showing the ability to control the puck, and display good creativity when puck handling. His main areas of concern are consistency and hockey sense. This season, he would show flashes of great hockey, but too often he would become lost in the play and not make anything happen.”
