Even though the LA Kings 2018-2019 season has come to an end, several of the Kings top prospects are still competing for a championship in the OHL, WHL and NCAA.
Take a look at the top prospects:
This past week, Anderson and the University of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs won their second national championship as they beat the University of Massachusetts.
Anderson, who the Kings drafted in 2017, scored a goal in the championship game, one of three in a shutdown 3-0 victory at KeyBank Center.
The defenseman signed a three-year entry level contract after being picked up by the Kings in a trade with the Toronto Maple Leafs earlier this season. Durzi logged five assists in four consecutive games (0-5=5) from March 22 to 28, contributing to the Guelph Storm's series sweep over the Kitchener Rangers.
During their series against the London Knights, defenseman Drew Doughty stopped by the Storm's locker room before Game 6 to provide some words of encouragement. It must have worked, since the Storm went on to complete an epic comeback to win the series. They'll face the Saginaw Spirit for the Western Conference Championship.
Lizotte made his NHL Debut with Kings on April 6 against Vegas Golden Knights, shortly after he signed a three-year entry level contract with the organization.
"My whole family just lives, breathes, eats, sleeps hockey, so it's exciting," Lizotte said to LA Kings Insider.
Dudas made his professional debut for the Ontario Reign on April 3, where he collected a pair of assists, the first points of his professional career. Prior to signing, he recorded a multi-goal (2-0=2) performance in the Owen Sound's final game in Portland.
Currently in playoffs with the Spokane Chiefs, Anderson-Dolan has put up 10 points in 10 games (3-7=10). Most recently on April 13, he notched an assist (0-1=1) against the Everett Silvertips, contributing to the Chief's series-clinching victory.
He and the Chiefs will face the Vancouver Giants in the Western Conference Finals, beginning on Friday.
Strand extended his scoring streak to four games after he scored two goals on April 10 against the Stockton Heat, the first multi-goal game of Strand's professional career and his third multi-point game of the season.
Thomas recorded four points (2-2=4) in five games, helping the Niagara IceDogs clinch the series against the North Bay Battalion.
In the next series against the Oshawa Generals, Thomas registered two points (1-1=2) in three appearances, however the IceDogs were eliminated from the OHL Playoffs after losing the series 4-2.
Thomas signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Kings on March 16.
On March 29, Villalta stopped 20-of-24 shots faced against the Owen Sound, recording his fourth consecutive playoff win and helping the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds clinch the series against Owen Sound.
Then, on April 14 against the Saginaw Spirit, Villalta stopped 21-of-25 shots faced, but the Greyhounds were ultimately eliminated from the playoffs.
