The LA Kings have five total prospects playing in the NCAA Ice Hockey post-season this evening. The first one mentioned was Erik Portillo of the University of Michigan. He is joined by four other Los Angeles Kings skaters in the prospect pipeline: right wing Alex Laferriere of Harvard University, center/wing Jared Wright of the University of Denver, center Jack Hughes of Northeastern University, and left-handed defenseman Braden Doyle, also of Northeastern University.
Not to be confused with Alexis Lafreniere of the New York Rangers, Alex Laferriere is a 6-foot, 170-pound right winger for Harvard University. Harvard is gearing up to take on Princeton University this evening at 7:00 PM on ESPN+ as a part of ECAC Hockey Quarterfinals. Last night, the Crimson defeated the Tigers 6-1, in which Laferriere scored two goals.
Laferriere was drafted by the LA Kings in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft with the 83rd overall pick. He has yet to sign his Entry Level Contract at this point, but the Kings do retain his rights.
