For today, we will content ourselves with some details. The Kings will begin their 2022 training camp with four sessions on the snow tomorrow in El Segundo.

So who will be there?

The Kings also included a full camp roster, one with 63 players, divided into six goalkeepers, 20 defenders and 37 forwards. The beauty of the Boot Camp roster is that it ranges from the futuristic Hall of Fame center to the demo defender, and everywhere in between. With consecutive pre-season games and seven show competitions in total, the organization will have the opportunity to offer a variety of players’ pre-season playing time, while managing the minutes and effort of veterans.

The complete camp list is divided as follows –

goalkeepers (6) – Phoenix Copley, David Hrinak, Jacob Ingham, Cal Petersen, Jonathan Quick, Matthew Vilalta
Defense men (20) – Frederic Allard, Mickey Anderson, Toby Besson, Tobias Björnfoot, Angus Booth, Brandt Clarke, Drew Dottie, Shawn Dorzy, Alex Edler, Cameron Jones, Helge Grans, Tyler Inamoto, Landon Kossior, Marc Lagoy, Jacob Mofrier, Kim Nosainen, Matt Roy, Jordan Spence, Cameron Sobrica, Sean Walker
Attackers (37) – Eric Allary, Garrett Anderson-Dolan, Les Anderson, Victor Arvidson, Quinton Byfield, Martin Krumiac, Philip Danault, Jacob Doughty, Aidan Dudas, Riley Fiddler Schultz, Samuel Fajimo, Kevin Viala, Karl Grundstrom, Samuel Helenius Kaliev, Brett Kemp, Adrian , Anzi Kopetar, Rasmus Kopari, Caleb Lawrence, Andre Lee, Brendan Lemieux, Blake Lizot, Tyler Madden, Trevor Moore, Justin Nashbour, Francesco Benelli, Alan Quinn, James Stefan, Akel Thomas, Nate Thompson, Alex Turcotte, TJ Tynan, Gabriel Velardi, Austin Wagner, Taylor Ward

Official List Available over here.

The Kings currently have 47 players signed to NHL contracts and all 47 will attend training camp, as well as several unsigned draft picks, inviting players contracted to the AHL’s Ontario Reign team and training camp, many of whom skated with the team at Rookie Faceoff in San Jose last weekend.

Regarding a few on the list above, coach Todd McClellan recently shared in an interview with Dennis Bernstein and Jon Hoeven that Victor Arvidson, who had off-season back surgery, has resumed skiing but may not be 100 percent ready for opening night. . As for Shawn Dorzy, who had shoulder surgery in the off-season, he may also be slow to pace but the expectation at this time is that he should be ready on October 11th. Expected to be ready to go tomorrow morning.

This group includes 28 players who played games for the Kings last season, as well as three players who played NHL games with other organizations. One of the last three is striker Nate Thompson, who will be attending camp on a professional trial (PTO). Thompson appeared in 79 regular season games and four postseason games with the Kings during the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons and saw action in 33 games with Philadelphia pre-season. Regularly in the area during the summer, Thompson skis casually with other local pro players, and is here to experiment as he evaluates his next steps.

Speaking of next steps, sleep another so we can start in main camp!
