We are thankful for your unwavering support through these difficult and unprecedented times.
The future is extremely bright for the LA Kings and we are proud to have you continue with us on this journey.
As we enter the next phase of "The Plan," we remain committed to updating you as we move forward with our preparation for the 2020 NHL Draft and the 2020-21 NHL season.
Since the implementation of this process began, our prospect pool has improved and is now regarded as the top development system in the NHL.
We will add another elite prospect with the second overall pick in the upcoming NHL Draft. In total, we have 11 selections, including eight in the first four rounds.
Additionally, we have created some essential salary cap space that will allow us to secure our best young players as they emerge over the next few years, while positioning ourselves to add significant assets when the time is appropriate.
In addition to the positive direction on the ice, we will provide you with a safe and inclusive environment at STAPLES Center.
We look forward to rewarding your loyalty with lasting success and memories in the years to come.

The overall system includes young AHL players with greater NHL experience like Matt Luff and Carl Grundstrom, along with others on the verge, including Mikey Eyssimont, Jacob Moverare, Markus Phillips, Johan Sodergran, Austin Strand and Matt Villalta. That group will be strengthened by others turning pro like Cole Hults, Jacob Ingham and more. All are pushing to reach the NHL and will help create competition for roster spots throughout the organization.
