Six Prospects Create Lifelong Memories at Community Appearances

LA Kings Development Camp is more than just hockey, it's an opportunity to give back to the community

The LA Kings Development Camp may only last a week, but the time that six prospects took out of their busy schedules gave two groups of children a lifetime of memories.

Jaret Anderson-Dolan, Sean Durzi and Alex Turcotte visited the Pediatric Therapy Network in Torrance for an afternoon of playing hockey and a special reading of the Kings children's book "B is for Bailey."

The trio of prospects played with kids ages 0-3 years old, participated in the storytime reading and distributed goodie bags that included Kings t-shirts and water bottles.

Analyst Daryl Evans and Bailey were also on hand to help make this day even more special for the group of children.

Pediatric Therapy Network is an organization that teaches children with special needs. They lead the way in helping children, families and communities reach full capabilities through innovative therapy, education, and research programs.

Across town, Mikey Anderson, Rasmus Kupari and Matthew Villalta surprised 20 kids at a summer hockey camp taking place at Toyota Sports Center.

They ran through some drills and taught them some basic fundamentals of the game.

And Villalta got to show that goalies have stickhandling skills, too.
