Los Angeles Kings

In my last article, I highlighted the LA Kings' three worst contracts heading into 2020-21. In this companion piece to my previous article, we will take a look at LA's three best contracts, along with an honorable mention. Honourable Mention An honourable mention for this list is Gabriel Vilardi. He played in the Kings’ final 10 games of the 2019-20 season as the second-line center due to Jeff Carter’s injury and posted seven points. This is a 57-point pace in a full season, and if he can replicate this next season, he’d be a Calder Trophy contender. His current entry-level contract has two years remaining with an average annual value (AAV) of $894,167, which could prove to be the team's best deal. 3) Alex Iafallo For the past two seasons, Alex Iafallo has skated on Anze Kopitar’s wing and emerged as Kopitar’s partner in crime during the 2019-20 season. Alex Iafallo, Los Angeles Kings (Amy Irvin / The Hockey Writers) In 2018-19, Iafallo had a breakout...

Los Angeles Kings

The LA Kings have $13.6 million in salary-cap space heading into 2021, which is the second-most in the entire NHL. However, they have a number of atrocious contracts heading into the season ahead. Here are the three worst contracts that LA Kings currently have for 2021. 3: Drew Doughty Drew Doughty’s contract will prove to be the worst for LA in the future, but it’s only the third-worst deal right now. His deal carries an average annual value (AAV) of $11 million per year, tying him for the fifth-highest cap number in the league with John Tavares. The only players who make more than Doughty are Connor McDavid, Artemi Panarin, Auston Matthews and Erik Karlsson. Both McDavid and Matthews will be stars in the NHL for years to come. Panarin is a current star who finished third in Hart Trophy voting this season and was named the top winger in the NHL. Conversely, Doughty is a player whose play is on the decline....

Previews and Predictions

The Los Angeles Kings had a miserable 2019-20 season, posting a record of 29-35-6. This left LA in second-to-last place in the Western Conference and 27th in the league. Despite this record, LA had an eight-game winning streak at the end of the season and has a promising future due to their deep prospect pool. Some of these prospects should be NHL-ready next season, and LA could see a different looking roster than 2019-20. Goaltending LA’s top netminder for the past decade has been Jonathan Quick, and the 2020-21 season likely won’t be an exception. The two-time Jennings Trophy winner and one-time Conn Smythe winner struggled last season, posting a .904 save percentage (SV%). He did begin to play better towards the end of the season, when he began playing in fewer games. This was able to happen because of his backup goalie, Cal Petersen.

Kings Prospects

The Los Angeles Kings have one of the best prospect systems, if not the best, in the NHL right now. The team had a great system going into the 2020 NHL Draft which only got better with their nine selections. The team used the draft to balance out positions and create an even better core for the future. When it comes to the future of the franchise, the team is in a great spot, not just with the number of prospects they have, but with the quality of these prospects as well. The Kings have some prospects who could play on the future top line of many teams in the league, but on the Kings, they will play second or third-line minutes because of how much competition there is for roster spots. Aside from the ample group of up-and-comers the team has, the Kings also have a few players who played their first full season in 2019-20, who will not be featured on this list, such as Matt Roy and Blake Lizotte. Overall, the future is bright for the Kings, and these untouchable prospects will be...
