The NHL draft is behind us, so is the start of free agency and 14 new King players.
Let us meet our new Kings.

  1. Quinton Byfield was the King’s 2nd overall pick. Byfield has been talked about so we can bypass his credentials.
  2. Defensemen Helga Grans. Grans, 6-3 and 206 pounds, is a puck-moving defenseman, can play powerplay, reliable in all 3 zones.
  3. Defensemen Brock Faber was chosen at pick 45 in the 2nd round. Faber, 6-0 and 180 pounds, is a gap closer, plays regular shift,and above-average speed.
  4. Pick 66 in round 2 was RW Kasper Simontaival. Simontaival, 5-9 and 177 pounds, protects the puck well and is a well-rounded player.
  5. Alex Laferriere, a 6-0, 183-pound right-winger, was picked 83 in the 3rd round. Big offensive potential
  6. Goaltender Juho Markkanen was picked 112 of the 4th round. Markkanen, 6-2 and 146 pounds, plays angles well, great rebound control, and never gives up.
  7. RW Martin Chormiak was a steal at pick 128 of round 5. Chromiak, 6-0 and 187 pounds, is an elite player who can put up points.
  8. Defensemen Ben Meehan was chosen at pick 140 of the 5th round. Meehan, 6-0 and 178 pounds, has good vision and is a mobile defenseman.
  9. The Last pick was Round 7, pick 190, and chose RW Aatu Jamsen. Jamsen, 6-2 and 157 pounds, has great vision, exceptional playmaker, and underrated sniper.
  10. The Kings also signed two players. Defensemen Mark Alt, 6-4 and 200 pounds, and goaltender Troy Grosenick, 6-1 and 185 pounds, will be at camp, most likely spend the year in Ontario.
