LAKings.com - " WING MEN " August Prospect Report

Throughout the summer, LAKings.com has been highlighting some of the young up-and-coming prospects within the Kings farm system. This month LAKings.com takes a look at the wing position.

- Patrick O'Sullivan
Quote:

New Kings Coach Marc Crawford counts O'Sullivan as one of the most promising of the Kings wing prospects. "You certainly can look at the guy we just traded for, O'Sullivan, as being a scoring type winger," Crawford said.
- Konstantin Pushkarev
Quote:

Crawford is also high on Pushkarev, who played in one game for the Kings last season. "Pushkarev, for sure, will also be a scoring-type winger, especially if we can get him into having better habits of using his speed to go along with his great deception and talent," Crawford said.
- Dany Roussin {make sure Danny sees this ZonQ :)}
Quote:

Back in the draft, Roussin quickly caught Crawford's eye. "The one kid that I've been very impressed with is Dany Roussin, the winger who played with Sidney Crosby in Juniors and scored a lot of goals," Crawford said. "He has a great set of hands and really knows where the puck is. He's much like Andrew Brunette of Colorado, in that he has real strong puck skills around the net."
- Petr Kanko
Quote:

Crawford is of the opinion that Kanko will develop into the kind of player that will make his presence felt with the Kings. "Petr Kanko is another kid that I think is going to get more of a look as he continues to get a little bit older," Crawford said.
- Brady Murray
Quote:

"Brady's one of those guys that brings a lot of intangibles," said Rob Laird, a Kings Pro Scout. "He is a very determined athlete," Laird said. "He seems to be on the puck right away, and has a great work ethic. When he's on the ice, something happens all the time."
- Lauri Tukonen
Quote:

"CLauri Tukonen was a player who played in the World Junior Championships for Finland," Murray said, "and he was one of the top scorers and made the first all-star team at the World Junior. He had a good year in Manchester, but his year was cut a little short with a shoulder problem that need surgery. He's recovering fine, and we expect him to be back and hopefully take another step as he's now getting to be the age where most Junior players would graduate and move on to the Junior level and he's already got one year under his belt."

Well, at least they found something good to say about him.

I guess they wouldn't let him not say anything at all.

I think thats the only good statement i've read about Roussin since he was drafted.

Maybe those comments will light a fire under his ***....

Maybe Crawford is smarter than the average HF Poster?


Nahhhhh, couldnt be.

Well, if his comments are an indication that he thinks that Roussin is a prospect worthy of his choice in the 2nd round, I would say no.
