Fine RJ, the KINGS will have them both omn the team next season... so stop crying
That goal was sexy, someone needs to hose me down.
Looking forward to the first time Bjornfot sends Kaliyev in on a break away with a sweet break out pass.
im fully torqued
He better be on the US World Junior team alongside Alex Turcotte.
That's the hope.
Just saw Kaliyev’s goal is up for fan vote in TSN’s 1V1 fan vote. Each day the play of the night becomes a challenger to take over from a previous play in the vote.

After two games with no goals Arty has striked again.
A shorty and assist.
2-0 so far
Past 2 days...
In case you missed it...
Looking like Ivan Drago
I heard he actually was Ivan Drago in that movie, decided to forgo acting and is now trying a career as a hockey player. Just a little doctoring of a birth certificate and a back story and here he is.
I live this kid. Hope he has a long productive career.
Will be interesting to see what they do with him next year. Can't play in the AHL, so either NHL or OHL again. Not often does a second rounder make it in his D+2 year, but then again he's not a normal 2nd rounder. It could be a Brayden Schenn situation all over again.
I would argue that the extra year in juniors actually hurt Schenn's development. The CHL/AHL agreement needs to be either eliminated or modified in some way to make some exceptions.
I don't think it'll ever happen, but it'd be nice if each team was allowed to designate one player with "exceptional status" so that they could play in the AHL underage. I think that ability could have saved the career's of many players who were rushed to the NHL to soon rather than being returned to juniors (see Oilers, Edmonton).
Thank goodness he's actually 28, we can just pull his real birth certificate and send him to the AHL
It’s the most backwards, ridiculous rule in pro sports. It only benefits these junior franchises. Really baffling.
I get why they want to hold onto their stars. But if they're not going to fully open it up--which I get, imagine the mass exodus of kids trying to play pro early--I wish they'd grant exceptions like they do 'exceptional status.'
Like, you've gotten 2 utterly dominant years of Kaliyev, it's not like they barely got his entertainment.
This is a dandy of a post right here...

I knew I liked this kid at the draft. As he was getting passed over he looked pissed off, like he's going to shove it up the teams asses that passed on him. That's exactly the kind of attitude that's missing on the Kings. When you listen to interviews with great athletes they were always proving themselves no matter how good they were, it's a constant drive. Kaliyev looks like he's on that path.
I have 2 questions:
1. How in the world did we end up getting this kid in the 2nd round?
2. When is the last time we drafted a player like this? (Jimmy Carson? and 2nd overall, comparatively.)
This season sucks, but man do we have some good kids in the pipeline.
When's the last time someone on the kings netted 50??? Pathetically it's probably been 30 some years. Hopefully he changes that.
25 years ago when somebody netted 40.
Lets start there first.
