The Players are arriving in Edmonton, Alberta in preparation for the upcoming World Junior Championships.
The travel is ongoing and the rosters have been set. We are almost set to go and watch hockey again.

The World Juniors are a showcase for prospects and rookies playing for their country. Blood, sweat, tears will be shed in hopes of capturing that all-important gold medal.

The Los Angeles Kings are well represented this year, most notably by 2020 2nd overall pick Quinton Byfield. He should be able to showcase his talents a bit more this tournament.

As you can see there is plenty of talent and representation for the Kings this year. We can expect these prospects to have a bit of energy because most of these players have not played in close to a year. This is a good test for the players if they are going to make the big club this year.

NHL hockey may just be around the corner. However, the World Juniors should be more than enough to get you ready. These young guns have been waiting to take the ice and play competitive hockey for awhile. They’re hungry, energized, and focused.


Let the games begin boys
