For the 29th place Los Angeles Kings, last season was one to forget. The team lacked scoring and lost an absurd amount of road games. No matter how bad of a season it was, there were a few players that showed signs of hope.
From AHL contract to AHL All-Star to NHL regular, Sean Walker is a poster boy for success within the LA Kings organization. Now, the 25-year-old defenseman can add long-term contract extension to the list.
The Kings have come to terms on a long-term extension with one of their more underrated contributors. Defenseman Sean Walker has signed a four-year extension with Los Angeles after completing just his first full NHL season.
Despite the 2020 NHL Draft being one of the most unconventional in history, there is no denying how exciting this year’s edition will be, as the board is stacked with some of the best prospects the NHL has seen in a long time.
The Los Angeles Kings and the Edmonton Oilers have each loaned one of their prospects overseas for the start of the 2020-21 season. The Saint John Sea Dogs acquired a defenseman via trade and we look at a player who could very well be a first-round pick for our Prospect of the Day.

The L.A. Kings looked slightly disappointed when they found out they didn’t win the draft lottery during phase one. They did finish with the 2nd overall pick and certainly faired better than the Detroit Red Wings.
