2018 Top 25 Under 25

2018 Los Angeles Kings Top 25 Under 25: #1 Gabe Vilardi

One of the brightest prospects in the team’s pipeline, the potential for the young center is huge.

2018 Los Angeles Kings Top 25 Under 25: #2 Adrian Kempe

The speedy, young forward was a surprising addition to the NHL roster out of camp last year. Can he improve upon his performance?

2018 Los Angeles Kings Top 25 Under 25: #4 Jaret Anderson-Dolan

2018 Los Angeles Kings Top 25 Under 25: #5 Alex Iafallo

We’re going to take a wild guess and say that if there was a runner-up for the Kings’ Unsung Hero Award, that it probably should have been Iafallo.

2018 Los Angeles Kings Top 25 Under 25: #6 Rasmus Kupari

Rasmus Kupari is fast — really fast — but it takes more than speed to be a first-round draft pick. Fortunately, he has more than just speed.

2018 Los Angeles Kings Top 25 Under 25: #7 Cal Petersen

Asking the eternal question of every (goaltending) prospect: Could he be the future in LA or will be a different team?

2018 Los Angeles Kings Top 25 Under 25: #8 Daniel Brickley

A (college) UFA who actually chose the Kings!

2018 Los Angeles Kings Top 25 Under 25: #9 Mike Amadio

A 17-game points streak in Ontario earned Amadio a lengthy call-up last year. Can he stick with the big club this year?

The speedy, high-scoring forward is poised for another big year as a leader of the Niagara IceDogs.

2018 Los Angeles Kings Top 25 Under 25: #11 Mikey Anderson

An NCAA title and a WJC bronze medal at 18? That’s a solid post-draft season.

2018 Los Angeles Kings Top 25 Under 25: #12 Matt Villalta

The Soo Greyhounds were almost unstoppable last season, and the young man between the pipes was a big reason why.

2018 Los Angeles Kings Top 25 Under 25: #13 Jacob Moverare

The Swedish defenseman is known for having a high hockey IQ. But with an increasingly crowded blue line, where does he fit in?

The steady defender looks to distinguish himself among a crowded crop of defenders on the Ontario Reign.

2018 Los Angeles Kings Top 25 Under 25: #17 Austin Wagner

The speedy winger looks to build on his first season as a pro and draw the attention of the Kings’ brass.

2018 Los Angeles Kings Top 25 Under 25: #18 Sheldon Rempal

The Kings hope to once again strike gold with a college free agent.

2018 Los Angeles Kings Top 25 Under 25: #19 Spencer Watson

The prolific OHL scorer is still trying to make his mark in the pros. Can he at least stick in the AHL this year?

Here’s a defenseman who punched above his weight (literally and figuratively) last season.

2018 Los Angeles Kings Top 25 Under 25: #21 Chaz Reddekopp
