On Friday, the LA Kings released the full roster for their annual Development Camp.

Slowly but surely, we are saying goodbye to the dog days of the NHL offseason and heading full steam into the 2021-22 season. Next week, the LA Kings will hold their official Development Camp at Toyota Sports Performance Center in El Segundo.

Per the club, here is the full roster of invited players:

Forwards

  • Quinton Byfield
  • Martin Chromiak
  • Lorenzo Canonica*
  • Aidan Dudas
  • Quinn Emerson*
  • Samuel Fagemo
  • Brett Kemp^
  • Rasmus Kupari
  • Brett Hyland*
  • Andre Lee
  • Tyler Madden
  • Logan Morrison*
  • Sahil Panwar*
  • Francesco Pinelli
  • Johan Sodergran
  • Alex Turcotte

It’s no surprise to see names like Byfield, Turcotte, Fagemo, and Kupari on this list. However, it will be interesting to see Francesco Pinelli in action after being taken early in the second round of July’s draft. Also, Martin Chromiak, who turned 19 on Friday, will get valuable experience after playing in two games with the Ontario Reign to close out the 2021 schedule. And it’s good to see Johan Sodergran back in action after missing most of last season with a back injury.

Defensemen

  • Jack Blake*
  • Brandt Clarke
  • Braden Doyle
  • Anthony Kehrer*
  • Landon Kosior*
  • Cade McNelly*
  • Ben Meehan
  • Dylan Robinson*
  • Jordan Spence
  • Cameron Supryka*

Along the blueline, much of the roster is not directly associated with the LA Kings organization but will get the opportunity to fine-tune their skills before heading off to their respective clubs. For example, Jack Blake, son of general manager Rob Blake, is committed to Bowling Green in the fall. That said, it will be fun to see the Kings 2021 first-round pick in Brandt Clarke get his feet wet against his soon-to-be teammates. And Jordan Spence, who spent the last three seasons in the QMJHL, will be playing for the Reign in the 2021-22 season.

Goaltenders

  • Jacob Ingham
  • John Lethemon^
  • Lukas Parik^

Expected to join the Reign full-time in the fall, Jacob Ingham will showcase his skillset against his ECHL teammate, John Lethemon. Lukas Parik will be joining the two netminders in Ontario in the fall after signing a one-year contract earlier this summer.
