With their seventh-round pick, and the final pick of the draft, (No. 211 overall) the Kings selected defenseman Nick Ebert from Windsor of the Ontario Hockey League. Ebert, 18, is listed at 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds and, coincidentally, is a native of New Jersey. Ebert had six goals, 33 assists and a minus-2 in 66 games for Windsor this season.
Ebert, who recorded the hardest shot in a junior “top prospects” competition this season, was once considered a potential first-round pick, but his stock dropped considerably this season. Click here for hockeysfuture.com’s look at Ebert.
