Kings draft picks

In case you didn’t bother to sit through all 24 hours (OK, so it was more like seven) of the NHL Draft on Sunday, here are the Kings selections:

First round: Traded pick No. 27 to Columbus in Jeff Carter deal Feb. 23, 2012.

Second round: Valentin Zykov, left wing, Baie-Comeau (Quebec Major Junior Hockey League), 37th overall. (The Kings traded second-, third- and fourth-round picks to Edmonton to move up to 37th to get Zykov)

Fourth round: Justin Auger, right wing, Guelph (Ontario Hockey League), 103rd.

Fourth round: Hudson Fasching, right wing, U.S. National Development Program, 118th.
(The Kings expect Fasching to play at the University of Minnesota)

Fifth round: Patrik Bartosak, goaltender, Red Deer (Western Hockey League), 146th.

Fifth round: Jonny Brodzinski, center, St. Cloud State (Minn.), 148th.

Sixth round: Zachary Leslie, defenseman, Guelph (OHL), 178th.

Seventh round: Dominik Kubalik, left wing, Sudbury (OHL), 191st.

Seventh round: Traded pick No. 208 to New Jersey on Sunday for a seventh-round pick in 2015.

All things considered it was a pretty dull day. Don’t expect to see any of these guys playing in the NHL soon, although there’s a certainly a chance for Zykov to make an impression at training camp in September.
