The LA Kings selected Jaret Anderson-Dolan with No. 41 Pick at 2017 NHL Draft.
He was ranked No. 21 among North American skaters by NHL Central Scouting.
Anderson-Dolan ranked second on the Spokane Chiefs in scoring with 76 points (39-37=76) during the 2016-17 regular season (72 games), becoming the fourth 17-year-old in franchise history to score 30 or more goals in a season. His 39 goals ranked 12th in the Western Hockey League.
Via SpokaneChiefs.com scouting report:
Anderson-Dolan is a two-way, versatile forward who skates very well and can play in any situation at any time. His most eye-catching trait for fans is likely his wrist shot, notable for its quick release (evident in his 39 goals scored last season). At 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds, "JAD" is on the small-to-average side of the size chart, but his low center of gravity and core strength allow him to play bigger than expected and win puck battles. On the defensive side, his skating ability and hockey IQ allow him to be aggressive on the forecheck and penalty kill, especially.
The Kings now have six draft picks remaining.
