The WHL’s 19-20 Rookie of the Year, Dylan Guenther would be a fantastic selection for the LA Kings in the upcoming draft.

If the LA Kings would like to add another top forward to their prospect pool, look no further than Dylan Guenther. The Edmonton, AB native, put up the third-most points for the Oil Kings in 19-20, despite being a rookie.

This season, he’s scoring at a torrid pace for Edmonton with 24 points through the first 12 games. Guenther is an alternate captain for the Oil Kings this season, and he also wore a letter for Team Canada at the U18 WJC’s, en route to a gold medal.

Scouting Report

"March 2021 – It’s safe to say that Guenther is excited to be back on the ice with the Edmonton Oil Kings as the young winger currently leads the WHL in scoring with 15 points in just six games to start the year. He has been a wizard on the powerplay, showing off his high-end one-timer and deceptive passing ability.He has been able to find teammates for backdoor tap-ins or in high-danger areas because his show has become such a threat and draws attention. After almost a year without game action outside of a short stint in the AJHL that only lasted a few games before COVID shut the season down there as well, Guenther has made his mark on this young WHL season helping pump his draft stock publically.If there was any question that he was the top draft-eligible prospect from the WHL, he has answered it emphatically. Solidifying himself as a top-10 prospect, his rise could continue right into the conversation at the top of the draft. Dobber Prospects/Ferrari"
