Game 1 of the 2018 Vegas Rookie Faceoff – a tournament featuring top prospects and draft picks from six different NHL clubs – didn’t exactly go as planned for the Los Angeles Kings. An opening goal, scored by Jaret Anderson-Dolan, started them out on the right foot. However, after a fairly even game through about 30 minutes, the game really got away from them in the third period. When all was said and done, the Anaheim Ducks skated off with an 8-3 victory.
