Quite a housecleaning in El Segundo today, as 23 names were trimmed from the training-camp roster. No huge surprises, other than that they were all done at once. The biggest surprise would probably be Corey Elkins, who had seemed to show improvement, but with the depth at center, including strong play by prospects Andrei Loktionov and Brayden Schenn, Elkins got caught in a numbers game. The Kings now have 37 players remaining in camp, although that includes four injured players (Cliche, Greene, Teubert and Voynov).
