    I like the quote from Kozun:

    "He made the transitions pretty seamlessly," shared linemate Brandon Kozun. "He's adapted well and he's been one of our best forwards. We've worked pretty well together so far [too]. He's always really positive on the bench and it's been a treat to play with him. He's not making a whole lot of mistakes out there and he seems like he's been a forward his whole life."

    He might not be ready yet, but a guy like Deslauriers who can skate, hit, fight, and score would be an awesome piece to compliment guys like Richards and Toffoli.

    Not to jinx it or anything, but it's been a long time since the Kings have had a player that brings a package of skills like that. Wayne Simmonds to a lesser extent is the most recent then you have guys like Adam Deadmarsh... maybe Rick Tocchet, Tony Granato, and Tomas Sandstrom before that?

    It's a rare commodity.

    Don't forget, Lubo played LW for AM during his rookie year.

    From December 29th, Role players keeping Monarchs atop AHL as top pro prospects shine in Los Angeles

    Nicolas Deslauriers, LW, 22

    If there is one player to circle on the Manchester roster as having a turn-around, career-altering season, it is Nicolas Deslauriers. The 2009 third-round selection was having an immense amount of trouble the last two years in the AHL adjusting his free-flying and puck-carrying style to the Monarchs blue line. A switch to left wing this offseason, however, has reinvented the young St. Anicet, Quebec native. With much less pressure put on the naturally talented Deslauriers in terms of defensive responsibility, he seems to have flourished as a hard-hitting power forward who also has some true goal-scoring touch. He is on pace to blow away his AHL totals from previous years with 20 points in 33 games while only being a minus-one rating. He also leads the Monarchs in shots (120, also tied for the league lead) by almost double the next forward, which points to his simple yet aggressive style.

    Always considered one of the Kings most naturally gifted prospects, it has taken some time for the Kings and Deslauriers to figure out how he can be best used. With this move to a forward position, it looks like he has truly re-established himself as one of the more promising King prospects with a legitimate future.

    Tied in goals with Pearson with 13 and very tough. 2nd or 3rd on the team in PIMS. I asked Jon Rosen what he needs to work on before getting a call up...Ill ask again and see if I can get some info.

    The other interesting Monarchs development was Scott Sabourin. After a slow start he now has 10 goals on the season which puts him in #2 for narchs goals and has roughly as many PIMs as Delauriers. Me things with these two along with Andreoff, Clifford may very well be prime trade bait if the Kings are looking to improve the forward lines....as they should.

    I happened to catch the conversation and his replies on twitter just now. Sounds like Deslauriers is still a ways out. Next season will probably be the one to follow for his chances with the club.

    Thanks Hip.

    Deslauriers has come a long way, but he really needs to work on his positional play. Sutter would not put up with that. If he can get solid in that area, he will be a bruiser on LW for years to come.

    Some other tidbits....neither Deslaurier or Sabourin are close at this point which to me, was a bit suprising as theyre tied for 1st and 2nd in goals, also said because of the Age difference and experience that Andreoff is farther ahead in development and closer to getting the call.
