Here are a few of the prospects and newcomers who are making an impact so far in camp:
Andrew Campbell: You might remember that the Kings traded up to grab this unheralded defenseman in the third round, and they don’t regret it. He has good size and has shown good hockey instincts. They like him and he could make the Manchester roster.
Richard Clune: A feisty player who has drawn more than one comparison to Sean Avery, as far as the way he plays the game. A good darkhorse candidate to make the team?
Drew Doughty: He has continued his strong play from the rookie camp. He’s done nothing to indicate that he shouldn’t be on the NHL roster when camp breaks.
Matt Greene: Good size and aggressiveness. It looks as though he will be Jack Johnson’s new partner.
Andrei Loktionov: The Kings are trying to decide whether to send him to juniors or to Manchester. He had an outstanding one-time goal during the first scrimmage today.
Oscar Moller: Just a consistently good young player. At this point, it wouldn’t be a total shock to see him make the NHL roster
