The Record, a newspaper in Kitchener, Ontario, has a story today about Kings draft pick Justin Azevedo and his strong desire to sign an entry-level contract with the Kings. Azevedo developed a bit of a buzz because of his big scoring numbers with Kitchener in the OHL last season, which led to the Kings selecting him in the sixth round in June. Azevedo indicated to the paper that he hasn’t had significant contract talks with the Kings.
“Same old, same old,” Azevedo said. “Nothing yet. Exactly the same as it was two months ago.”
It’s an interesting story, worth a read…
Also, the Erie Times-News reported (somewhat randomly) the following today:
“Veteran defenseman Josh Kidd began camp with the (OHL Erie) Otters on Tuesday. But Kidd believes he’s a step closer to signing his first professional contract with the Los Angeles Kings.”
