LOS ANGELES — During the third day of the week-long Los Angeles Kings 2021 Development Camp, 18-year-old center prospect Francesco Pinelli, who was selected by the Kings in the second round (42nd overall) of the 2021 National Hockey League Draft, talked about his first experience in professional hockey this week.

“I feel great,” he said. “The practices they run and the program they have us on is incredible. I like how these three days have unfolded and it’s continued to get better and better.”

“We do battle drills, we battle along the walls, picking up [loose] pucks, scoring,” he added.
