With the start of the draft just over 30 hours away…
— The Kings are fully expected to choose either Zach Bogosian or Drew Doughty with the No. 2 overall pick, assuming they’re not overwhelmed by a trade offer for the pick.
— If the Kings jump back into the top 15 (or so) of the draft, they will have their eyes on another defenseman. This depends entirely, of course, on how the draft shapes up.
— If the Kings keep the No. 28 pick, they’re hoping to find that one of the centers they covet is still available.
