Kings Best Selection: Aaron Rome, 4th Round, 104th Overall

This was the year several now influential Kings like Matt Greene and Jarrett Stoll came into the league. However, neither were selected by the Kings which could be a reason this was an off-year in the Draft for Los Angeles.

The Kings selected 11 players this year and only four of them have spent any time in the NHL.

Rome may have been the best selection by the Kings this year, but he did not appear in any games for LA. As a matter of fact only two of the 11 selections in this draft played with the Kings. I mean when your best selection is known most for putting Nathan Horton in the hospital with a concussion during the Stanley Cup Final you know it was an off-year.
