Player evaluation: Giuliano



This season: 53 games, 0 goals, 6 assists, minus-9 rating.

Positives: A versatile forward who can give a team quality energy-line minutes. Giuliano is a responsible player and a strong skater with a good attitude, and he’s a solid defensive player.

Negatives: There’s little to suggest that Giuliano will ever develop much of an offensive game, and he’s also limited by his slight build, as he is generously listed at 5-foot-9 and 205 pounds.

Looking ahead: It seems doubtful that Giuliano has a future in Los Angeles. He’s the type of player that teams like to have around, because he’s well liked and a hard worker, but the Kings seem more likely to give his minutes to an up-and-coming player who has more of an upside.

Contract situation: Unrestricted free agent.
