As reported on November 13, @LAKings right wing prospect Scott Sabourin burst onto the scene during the team's Rookie Camp, Rookie Tournament, Training Camp and in pre-season games, even though he wasn't even under contract to the Kings—he was in camp on a tryout basis.

But he sure wowed everyone with unexpected skill and skating ability, enough to earn himself an entry-level contract with the Kings, even though he was destined to start the season their the American Hockey League affiliate, @MonarchsHockey.

Despite the great showing in training camp, Sabourin was unable to bring that play with him from Los Angeles to Manchester, where he "...really struggled, big time..." according to Monarchs head coach Mark Morris.

For a progress report on Sabourin, as assessment of his potential, along with a quick glimpse into his life off the ice, including comments from Sabourin and Morris (audio of the interviews also available), check out:
