Barring late trades, the Kings will have two first-round picks in the National Hockey League entry draft today at Toronto.
Last year, the Kings swapped first-round picks with the Chicago Black Hawks, but King General Manager Rogie Vachon said he will probably keep the two picks this year.
"If I get an offer I couldn't refuse, I'd make a trade," Vachon said. "But it would have to be something I couldn't refuse."
The Toronto Maple Leafs, who finished with the worst record in the NHL last season, have the No. 1 pick, and Craig Simpson, Michigan State center, is rated the top player by NHL Central Scouting. But Simpson recently said that he doesn't want to play for the Maple Leafs.
