The 2015 Los Angeles Kings Draft has been a productive one for LA. Before the actual Los Angeles Kings Draft even began, they worked on getting a deal done with the Boston Bruins that would send goaltender Martin Jones, defensive prospect Colin Miller and their first round, #13 pick in the draft for forward Milan Lucic. Lucic was originally drafted by the 50th by the Boston Bruins in the 2006 NHL Draft. The “Heavy” power forward totaled 165 goals and 238 assists for the Bruins which was good for 403 total points.
With giving up their first round #13 pick there were still six selections allotted in the LA Kings Draft.
Here is a look at the LA Kings Draft Picks 2015
The defenseman was picked in the 2nd round, 43rd in the overall NHL draft and brings to the Los Angeles Kings excellent reach and strength. Cernak is known for being brilliant defensively especially in front of his own net. While he will need to work and improve on his skating ability he is a physical player who doesn’t take a lot of penalties.
The 6’4 200 pound Dergachyov brings an extremely high level of both skill and intelligence to the Los Angeles Kings. Dergachyov has great puckhandling skills as well as soft hands and a very keen awareness of teammates positions on the ice at all times. The gritty grinder will bring his role as a scorer with all the technical skills to be successful with the LA Kings Lines.
Picked in the LA Kings Draft 2015 4th round, 99th overall Wagner is a speedy strong transitional forward who is extremely fluid in his skating patterns. Wagner will need to work on his timing of shots as well as passing but overall he is a good decision maker.
Picked in the LA Kings Draft 2015 5th round, 134th overall Schmalz is a gigantic power forward who has finally grown into his body this last season. He is a very well-rounded skater who knows how to use his massive frame extremely well.
Picked in the LA Kings Draft 2015 7th round, 187th overall Reddekopp will be a tough defender in the LA Kings zone and will be a strong asset on penalty kills for LA. He will need to work on his skating footwork which is sometimes known to be tight and a bit clumsy but Chaz has very good athleticism and will be able to work on the skating skills.
Picked in the LA Kings Draft 2015 7th round, 194th overall Roy is a right handed defensive player at 6’0 200 pounds.
The LA Kings finished the 2014-15 season 40-27-15 (95 points), 4th in NHL Western Conference Pacific Division missing the NHL Playoffs. With the Anaheim Ducks, San Jose Sharks, Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers and the Vancouver Canucks all vying to win the Pacific Division the LA Kings will have a tough schedule ahead of them and will be looking to get back into the thick of the NHL playoff hunt asap! Will these draft picks heap win a third Los Angeles Kings Stanley Cup victory?
