Kyle Woodlief of the Red Line Report has the Kings picking Scott Kosmachuk in his mock draft.

30. Los Angeles — Scott Kosmachuk. The Stanley Cup champs have the luxury of taking whoever they deem the best player left on the board, regardless of position. That being the case, we think Kosmachuk is just the style of player co-chief scout Mike Futa likes.

“If you hadn’t seen me play before, then I would describe myself as a player who will do anything to win. I block shots, make defensive plays, sacrifice anything to get the win. I bring speed; scored 30 goals, so I can find the back of the net. I think it’s just trying to be a solid all-around player and doing what I can to help the team.”
Sounds like a solid all-around player with a high compete level, traits that the Kings find highly favorable. Could be a replacement for Justin Williams many years down the road.
