Info on Kings pick Nick Shore (No. 82)

The Kings made a move to get back into the third round and, with the No. 82 overall pick, selected center Nick Shore out of the University of Denver. Shore was ranked as the No. 56 North American skater by Central Scouting, and had 18 points in 28 games as a freshman for the Pioneers this season.

The Kings gave up a 2012 third-round pick and their sixth-round pick (No. 170) to get the No. 82 pick. Before starting his college career, Shore, 18, spent two seasons in the U.S. national program. Here’s the official video on Shore, in which he is described as strong on faceoffs and a solid playmaker.
