Depth can be a good thing in any sport. Knowing you have capable players in the fold when a trade occurs or a player goes down can be a huge plus. The Los Angeles Kings are no different. They already have talent at the NHL level, but how is the depth in Ontario with the Reign? How is the positional depth? The Kings had a roster full of players last year, however, some of them played out of position to fill the void on right wing.

The Kings, according to last years roster, had 4 left wings, 1 right wing and 8 centers. This is given their natural position. Due to the lack of right wingers, the Kings had to slide some centers over to right wing, this includes call-ups from Ontario. Defensively the depth was good, along with goaltenders. The only true right winger was Dustin Brown, who bounced back to have a good year last year.  The forwards could use an upgrade as far as postion goes. A few guys from Ontario, like Matt Moulson, could be of help because he has played left and right wing, and possibly Matt Luff who can produce as well. Aside from players playing out of position the Kings need to upgrade the right side.

The Ontario Reign  look promising this year with not too much movement player wise. The core group is still together and look to make a move in the playoffs. Peter Budaj will be working with the young goaltender Cal Peterson down with the Reign and act as a mentor, as he came back to the Kings organization via trade with Tampa Bay. The forwards look good and ready for call ups at any moment, and the defense looks strong , even if Paul LaDue makes the big club out of camp.
