Offensive talent prevalent among Los Angeles Kings prospects to watch
 

The 2012-13 season commences for the Los Angeles Kings prospects knowing that their organization just achieved hockey's greatest prize. Through years of solid drafting and good prospect development, the Kings were able to mold a championship-winning lineup. It seems that this trend is still alive and well within the pipeline with notable prospects at all levels of play.



Although they have taken a hit in overall prospect ranking as a team, the Kings have numerous NHL-ready talents and have stocked up on high-end skill players. Tyler Toffoli, Tanner Pearson, Tomas Hyka, and Nick Shore are just a few names among the many skilled forwards in the ranks that are edging closer and closer to an NHL debut for the Kings.… read more

Very solid read. Thanks!

interesting there was no write up on M Mersch. from people on here and other reviews he seems to be the most well rounded forward prospect at this point and could possibly still evolve into a solid scoring threat

Best case scenario for Nick Shore could, just possibly, be in the Mike Richards/Jonathan Toews ballpark.

Wouldn't that be sweet.

I wouldn't put him close to either. Both guys mentioned were in the NHL at shores age, and I don't see him being NHL ready for at least 2-3 years.

But if he becomes a poor mans Richards he could replace stoll in a few years. Best part he can play wing too.

I don't see how he could be comparable to either of them. I think he could be a Prospal type of player if he matures into an NHL type of game.

I think that is a pretty realistic expectation for Shore at this point. 2nd/3rd line tweener who can play wing.

Dare I say...it feels a little bit like the report on Trevor Lewis as a prospect.

I was under the impression that title was Vey's. But I have had very very limited fews on almost all the prospects currently in Man.

Don't forget Nic Dowd, playing in his JR season at St Cloud State. He is off to an amazing start; 6 goals and 6 assists and is #2 in the nation in scoring...3 PPGs, 3 Game Winning Goals, and even 12 penalty minutes too!
