Kings sign Corey Elkins

The Kings have signed Corey Elkins, who recently completed his college career at Ohio State, to a one-year entry-level contract. Here’s the release from the Kings…

LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have signed free agent forward Corey Elkins to a one-year entry-level contract, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced Tuesday.

Elkins, 24, finished with a team-leading 18 goals and 41 points (18-23=41) in 42 games during his recently completed senior season at Ohio State University. The 6-2, 215-pound native of West Bloomfield, Michigan also finished with 18 penalty minutes and he shared the team lead with a plus-24 rating. He led the Buckeyes to a record of 23-15-4 and a berth in the NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey Tournament (OSU was eliminated from tournament play last weekend).

In four seasons with the Buckeyes, Elkins – a three-time Ohio State Scholar-Athlete, two-time Academic All-Big Ten choice and 2007 Coaches Award winner for hard work and determination – recorded 60 points (27-33=60) and 40 penalty minutes in 102 career games with the Buckeyes.

Elkins skated with the Sioux City Musketeers (USHL) during the 2004-05 season and his 19 goals and 42 points (19-23=42) helped lead the Musketeers to the USHL’s Western Conference championship that season. Before that, he played with the St. Louis Heartland Eagles (USHL) in 2003-04 (57 GP, 12-17=29, 36 PIM) and the Compuware Ambassadors (NAHL) in 2002-03 (49 GP, 8-11=19, 37 PIM).

    Purcell, Drewiske and now Elkins (2007 Coaches Award winner for hard work and determination). I think Lombardi is leaving his mark on the team as the team will with future opponents.

    Okay, okay Harold also.

    Ersberg, I believe the guy in question is from Boston and is still playing, thus can’t be signed yet.

    Not sure about Matt Gilroy, but Quisp and I have both mentioned Tyler Bozak.

    Big A – I believe Burke signed Hanson today. I wonder if he wears glasses?

  • Ersberg

    Big A-

    That’s the guy, Bozak.

    “Besides Bozak, the other most sought after U.S. college players include Boston University defenceman Matt Gilroy, Notre Dame forward Christian Hanson and forward Paul Crowder of the University of Alaska Anchorage.”

    Gilroy story- Timmy is his brother who died 12 years earlier.
    Matt grew to be a strong hockey player. But not a great one. No college offered him a scholarship. Hat in hand, he met with Boston Universitys legendary hockey coach, Jack Parker, and asked for a tryout as a walk-on. Parker wasnt encouraging.

    I was a forward, and he told me he had no slots for forwards left, Matt said. I thought, What would Timmy do? I knew the answer: Hed outwork everyone. So I asked Coach Parker if hed take me as a defenseman. He said okay. I think he needed someone to play against the starters in practice.
    Only 24 NHL teams offered him a contract after his jr. season. I’d bet on 30 this year.
