Kings prospect watch: forward Scott Sabourin

Scott Sabourin made an impression during his first exhibition with the Kings on Sunday, drawing a fighting major and an interference with the goaltender penalty. His was one of the few fiery performances in an otherwise drab showing. The 21-year-old right wing made it clear after the game that he likes to play a physical style. Anything else and he should be banished to the bench. “If I don’t get a hit in early, I feel like I sleep through the game,” said Sabourin, who is 6-foot-3 and 203 pounds. “I know I have to protect the guys out there.” Toughness is a skill the Kings value, and no one likes to see a good check like coach Darryl Sutter. Sabourin doesn’t figure to make the cut with the Kings, but he’s worth keeping an eye on when he joins Manchester (N.H.) of the American Hockey League.

    Sabourin doesn`t figure to make the cut with the Kings? why not? 3 fights and 2 points in 4 games and a +2 some might be surprised but not Sutter or Lombardi.
