Brandon Kozun, the Kings’ sixth-round pick (No. 179) will likely draw some obvious comparisons to Justin Azevedo, the Kings’ sixth-round pick from last year. Kozun is listed at 5-foot-8, one inch taller than Azevedo, and they both fell into the late rounds despite putting up big goal-scoring numbers.
Kozun was a teammate, in Calgary, of Kings goalie prospect Martin Jones. He scored 19 goals for the Hitmen in 2007-08 but jumped to 40 goals last season. Kozun lists Calgary as his hometown but apparently was born in Los Angeles.
