The five prospects getting sent over are Alex Turcotte, Akil Thomas, Aidan Dudas, goaltender Jacob Ingham, and former Vancouver Canucks prospect Tyler Madden—whom was acquired by the LA Kings in the Tyler Toffoli trade.

It is highly speculated that along with the group of centre prospects the Kings already possess, that they will take centre Quinton Byfield of the Sudbury Wolves 2nd overall.
