Which Prospects Should the Los Angeles Kings Look to Call Up or Send Down?

Two of the Los Angeles Kings' recent draft picks—Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson—are already having a major impact on the team, and they're both only 22 years old.

The Kings' prospect pool isn't as deep as that of most teams, but considering how low they've drafted in recent years, it's not bad. They have a number of potential NHL players—such as Derek Forbort and Valentin Zykov—who are just an injury or two away from making their debuts.

With the indefinite loss of Slava Voynov, there are questions about what the Kings' blue line will look like going forward.

The good news is it will include Jake Muzzin, who missed the first few games of the season with injury.

But what does the future hold for some other young defensemen? Find out as we examine L.A. prospects who could be making a move.
