King's Draft Recap
October 31, 2018
With a bunch of picks in hand, the Kings were looking forward to the 2018 draft.

First round: With pick 17 and 19, the Kings had a few scenarios outlined and were busy watching the draft board. As our turn was approaching, the Oilers approached the Kings, looking to swap their pick 18 for multiple picks in return. A deal for pick 18 vs 27 and 51 was reached, giving the Kings en enviable option to select 3 straight times. They selected a complete trio. First they picked Joel Farabee. GM Audet was thrilled to see the speedy talented hard working winger fall to that spot. Then they selected Joe Veleno. Despite the Kings strenght down the middle, they couldn't pass on the smart two way centerman. With the 3rd pick, they went for winger Troy Terry, who has really blossomed into a legit prospect since being drafted in 2015.

In the second round, the Kings had 3 more picks, and went with 3 wingers that have high skills in Jesse Ylonen, Drake Batherson and Kirill Marchenko. Ylonen is playing in the Finnish league, Batherson is tearing up the AHL as a rookie, and Marchenko is playing great hockey in the MHL. Marchenko is a long term project that could pay big dividends.

With their list getting thinner, the Kings traded 2 3rd round picks to move up to 63rd and pick Jacob Oloffson, who many saw as a first round talent, and who's doing well in the Swedish league. Their 2nd 3rd round pick was Kirill Maksimov, a 2017 draftee who really blossomed last season. A scoring machine in the ohl currently. The Kings hope to see him on McDavid's wing one day.

With their 4th round pick, they selected Jonathan Davidsson. A player we feel is one year away from being a regular nhl player with a good two way skillset.

After going forward heavy in the draft, the Kings selected 2 dmen in the 5th. Late bloomer Simon Johansson and KHL import from the Leafs Igor Ozhiganov. Igor has been a regular on the Leaf's blueline so far this season.

Overall, the team is really happy with this year's draft class, and with 3 first ronders and 4 second rounders next draft, the future should look good in La La land very soon.
