The Kings rookies and prospects will take on other young players from the Ducks, Avalanche, and Sharks

The Los Angeles Kings announced their roster for this year’s rookie camp and tournament. Players will take part in the 2019 Rookie Faceoff, which will be held September 7-10 in Irvine, California. Hosted by the Anaheim Ducks, games will be held at the Great Park Ice & FivePoint Arena facility.

Notable players under contract with the Kings include forwards Jaret Anderson-Dolan, Arthur Kaliyev, Samuel Fagemo, Rasmus Kupari, defensemen Mikey Anderson, Sean Durzi, and goaltender Matt Villalta.

Prospects enrolled in college, including Alex Turcotte, are not eligible to attend camp due to NCAA rules and regulations.

One notable, albeit expected, absence is Gabe Vilardi.

There are several free agent camp invitees to fill out the roster, including forwards Joseph Garreffa and Jonathan Yantsis and defensemen Billy Constantinou and Vincent Sevigny. All four players also attended development camp with the Kings in June.
