theScore is previewing each team leading up to the 2016-17 season.
By their own standards, the Los Angeles Kings are in a bit of a dry spell.
Following their second Stanley Cup win in 2014, the Kings missed the postseason, then bowed out to in-state rivals, the San Jose Sharks, in just five games in 2016.
Los Angeles didn't make any big splashes in the offseason, but lost a key piece in Milan Lucic.
Still, with strong organizational depth, the Kings will compete again next season. Here's a look at their projected depth chart:
|Tanner Pearson||Jeff Carter||Tyler Toffoli|
|Teddy Purcell||Anze Kopitar||Marian Gaborik|
|Dwight King||Nick Shore||Dustin Brown|
|Kyle Clifford||Michael Latta||Trevor Lewis|
|Jake Muzzin||Drew Doughty|
|Rob Scuderi||Alec Martinez|
|Tom Gilbert||Brayden McNabb|
