    Default Gabriel Vilardi Thread

    Gabriel Vilardi had 2 assists in friday nite's game against Windsor (Vilardi is now with Kingston, after a Jr League trade).

    It was his 1st hockey game since recovering from a back injury suffered sometime last summer.

    He had the lone assists on both goals, which were also both even-strength.

    IMO, the lone assists imply he may have had take-aways on either or both goals, prior to making the pass
    to the shooter.

    Here's an article on the trade:

    All I can say is,
    F' Yeah!!!!!

    thx for the update. I look forward to seeing Vilardi in L.A. in a few years.

    And for a second, I thought the old Kings mascot Kingston was involved here somehow- Nice!

    When Vilardi fell to the Kings my son and I were over the moon on this. Kid could be the best pick since Toff.

    If he can stay healthy, he'll be wih the Kings next season, I'd be willing to bet.

    My dream is for him to go nuts on the scoring sheet in Kingston, and join the Kings in
    late March or so for the PO push.

    Then you'd have today's Kings PLUS (potentially),
    Carter, Vilardi andf Amadio (who is curently producing bigtime for Ontario).

    Nice reinforcements, especially offensively, IMO.

    I think Vilardi will probably get some AHL time before playing in LA. Amadio might be in LA all season next year. It is great news to see the future C depth chart looking less bleak in a hurry. I think Blake has already fixed the goaltending pipeline.

    Interesting that Vilardi got 2 assists with Nyman. I figured he'd be setting up Robertson-- get some of the bigger bodies out there together. And maybe link the forwards with Rasanen on the D who is huge, but I have not seen him show 2nd round talent.

    I think Vilardi will be a stud within a few years.

    Also a plus player in every NHL season he's played. Including a team-leading +35 in 15-16.

    Toffs is fully 3D, and with a great attitude, IMO.

    He's not massive, and he lacks explosive speed, but he does everything else well.

    So NOT a problem.
