Kings Best Selection: Lubomir Visnovsky, 4th Round, 118th Overall

Visnovsky was the Kings’ fourth selection of the 2000’s.  This pick goes to show that sometimes late round picks play out much better than some of your top first and second round selections. Since being drafted Visnovsky has appeared in 806 regular season games, and has won four World Championship medals with his native country Slovakia.

Alexander Frolov was a close second in this decision but something inside me just wouldn’t let me say Frolov was the best in anything.
