Kings Rookie Camp: Lineup Notes for Game vs Ducks, Early Quotes

Rookie Camp will move along quickly. The Kings took to the ice for a 90 minute practice on Friday. They’re scheduled to practice again Saturday morning and then bus to Irvine for a 5pm game vs. the Ducks, as part of the NHL Rookie Faceoff tournament.

Coach Mike Stothers is expected to go with the following lines:

Kupari-JAD-Fagemo
Eyssimont-Thomas- Kaliyev
Morrison-Dudas-Bergh
Sodergran-Lizotte-Yantsis

Defense and goal are still TBD. However, we expect Björnfot, Anderson, Durzi, Strand, and Phillips to be in the lineup; as well as Villalta / Ingham splitting time in net.

UPDATE, 10am Saturday

D pairs look to be:

Anderson – Spence
Bjornfot – Durzi
Phillips – Strand

* Constantinou – Sevigny was another pairing, but don’t expect them to play. Will update further later today.
