In the opening month of the season, Sean Walker showed that he's more than ready to be a full-time NHL defenseman.
And LA Kings fans took notice by voting him as the McDonald's Player of the Month for October.
Walker scored three goals and added three assists (3-3=6) while posting a team-high plus-5 rating in 13 games.
