Immediate reaction to Kings' draft pick

by Anne

The Kings traded up to 15th (giving up only two picks in this year's draft) and drafted American defenseman Derek Forbort.

Already Derek has the scales tipped in his favor as he's an American defenseman. Then you toss in that he's a giant at 6'5" and he plays for the USHL development team and I like him even more. But, these are all surface things, I now quest to find a bit of Mark Pysyk cuff link-style trivia to send him over the edge...

Interview on LA Kings Insider... Thanks his Dad, blah, blah, blah, talks about how he's always been really tall, blah, blah, blah, loved hearing all the fans in the Staples Center, blah, blah, blah, Jack Johnson is a USA hockey defensive demi-god (allegedly), blah, blah, blah, HOLD UP, he's going to North Dakota?! AAAAAND SOLD.

I don't follow college hockey AT ALL. However, I have a soft spot for North Dakota and the players they produce. For example, one Los Angeles Kings defenseman that shall remain nameless...

I'm just kind of "blah" about Kassian, especially after his assault arrest. Brayden Schenn doesn't really excite me all that much, so I'm much more pleased with this year's first round selections. Excellent.

Welcome to the Kings, Derek Forbort.

I find it strange that he was drafted in the throwback jersey but then put on a regular primary logo jersey for the pictures. Whatevs.
