KINGS TO HOST DEVELOPMENT CAMP ON JULY 9-14
LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings will host their annual Development Camp from July 9-14 at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo. The one-week camp will feature 30 players participating in both on-ice and off-ice workouts, with all on-ice workouts open to the public at no charge.
The Kings have added a special Game to highlight the annual Development Camp. The scrimmage, featuring the Kings' top prospects, will be held on Thursday night at 7 p.m.
Tickets for the Game are free and can be picked up at the Toyota Sports Center administrative offices (second floor) on Wednesday, July 12, from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. There is a limit of two tickets per person and they are on a first come, first serve basis until they are all distributed.
Among those scheduled to take part in this Development Camp are Kings first-round selections Anze Kopitar (1st round, 11th overall, 2005 NHL Entry Draft), Jonathan Bernier (1st round, 11th overall, 2006 NHL Entry Draft), Trevor Lewis (1st round, 17th overall, 2006 NHL Entry Draft) and recent Kings acquisition Patrick O'Sullivan, who this past season was named the American Hockey League's Rookie of the Year.
Also slated to participate are the following players who each appeared in games for the Kings last season: Petr Kanko, Richard Petiot, Matt Ryan and Konstantin Pushkarev.
"It will be the first opportunity for me and some of the other new people in this organization to see many of these players up close and on the ice," said new Kings Head Coach Marc Crawford. "I am very much looking forward to seeing our prospects. Hopefully all of these guys realize that every opportunity you have on the ice is an opportunity to impress someone and to leave a lasting impression."
