Bagnall moves on

Former Kings prospect Drew Bagnall, a defenseman, has signed a one-year contract with the Minnesota Wild. Bagnall, 26, had two goals and 10 assists in 58 games with Manchester last season, but never cracked the NHL level during his three seasons in the Kings organization. More importantly, Bagnall was the captain of the Monarchs, so it will be interesting to see who inherits that role next season. Typically, it has been an older player — “older” being relative, of course — but first we’ll have to see which prospects graduate to the NHL level. Marc-Andre Cliche and Trevor Lewis earned praise for their leadership last season. Thomas Hickey has also been a captain at a couple levels.
