The Los Angeles Kings are ready to take another look at part of their future. Jaret Anderson-Dolan has been recalled, technically for the first time in his career. The 20-year old forward did play five games for the Kings at the beginning of last season before being sent back to the WHL.
This year, Anderson-Dolan has been playing for the Ontario Reign of the AHL where he has 19 points in 36 games. The second-round pick from 2017 is one of the building blocks for the Kings moving forward, and in another rebuilding season they might as well see what they have.
Anderson-Dolan may not have as high an offensive ceiling as some of the other top prospects in the Kings system, but his two-way ability and experience at center ice makes him one to watch. The Reign are one of the lowest-scoring teams in the AHL meaning his 19 points actually puts him in a tie for second on the club, only behind Martin Frk.
