Talent Analysis

Marchment is the nephew of long-time NHL defenseman Bryan Marchment. Taken by the Kings' with a late-round flier in his second year of eligibility in the 2014 NHL Draft, he has the size and awareness to be a solid two-way center. He is not overly-skilled in terms of scoring or playmaking ability but skates well and uses his size to force turnovers along the boards and in the forecheck. Marchment plays a solid game in his own end.


Marchment attended his first NHL training camp with Los Angeles before being returned to Belleville at the start of the 2014-15 season. He and Bulls' leading scorer Remi Elie (Dallas) were acquired by Erie in a trade with the Bulls in January 2015.

It may just be over 685 kilometers from Sudbury to Erie as the crow flies, but for Nick Baptiste, the difference between playing for the cellar-dwelling Wolves to riding shotgun for Connor McDavid and the Otters might be enough to give someone vertigo. Read more»

He’s answered all the questions that have come his way this season. His continued excellence has cemented his position atop the draft boards for the upcoming NHL Draft. His play at the 2015 World Junior Championship, where he served as assistant captain, tied for the tournament lead in scoring, and was named to the tournament All-Star team en route to leading Canada to a gold medal, solidified his reputation on the international stage. And he did the latter after missing the better part of the season with a broken hand — an injury he was only cleared of just days before the start of the WJC. Read more»

In recent years the Los Angeles Kings have brought in many players from the OHL, and it has been met with a fair amount of success. Tanner Pearson, Drew Doughty, Kyle Clifford, Andy Andreoff;. the list of OHL draftees is long and successful. That pattern has not changed, as the Kings have a staggering eight OHL prospects out of their pool of ten Junior prospects. Mark Yannetti, the Kings’ director of amateur scouting, and Clay Leibel, the club’s Ontario scout, seem to have a formula for success with OHL selections right now.

Without having too many high selections in recent drafts, the Los Angeles Kings have done quite well in growing their pipeline in areas of need. While the graduation of Martin Jones does hurt the goalie pipeline, they continue to stock up on useful centers and defenseman. While the wings might not be top-tier, there are some role players and quality players peppered throughout.
