A gift to headline writers everywhere.
Do you enjoy headlines like "Attack's Jacob Friend not making many friends with his physical play"? If so, you might like the seventh-round pick of the Los Angeles Kings.

Kings take their annual OHL re-entry. Jacob Friend is a great pickup. One of the OHL's most physical defenders. NHL potential.— OHL Prospects (@BrockOtten) June 25, 2016
Nice pick by the LA Kings taking Jacob Friend. Earned a spot on the Attack out of camp, he's a big physical, mean defender.— Ryan Yessie (@RyanHPscout) June 25, 2016
