The Los Angeles Kings had five selections in the final day of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. The Kings had to wait until the fourth round (121st) to make its first selection of the day, and they used it to select Nikolai Prokhorkin, a Russian left-winger who will turn 19 in August and played last season for CSKA in the KHL. Prokhorkin is described as a potential top-six forward, though he has been plagued by injuries. The Kings’ fifth round selection (151st) was used on a defenseman, Colin Miller, a 19-year old who played last season for Sault Ste. Marie of the Ontario Hockey League. Miller scored eight goals and assisted 20 others in 54 games for Sault Ste. Marie last season.
The Kings had two sixth round selections (171st and 181st), the first choice of the Kings in the sixth round was used on right winger Thomas Hyka, a 19-year old from the Czech Republic who played for Gatineau Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Their second selection of the round was used on defenseman Paul La Due from Lincoln of the United States Hockey League. The Kings final selection of the draft (211th in the seventh round) was used on defenseman Nick Ebert, an 18-year old who played for Windsor of the Ontario Hockey League. The Kings actually had two seventh-round selections, but the Kings dealt the 183rd pick to the Dallas Stars in exchange for a seventh-round pick in next year’s draft.
