This weekend was the 2022 National Hockey League Draft and for the first time since the move to Komoka THREE former Kings were selected.
In the second round, the Dallas Stars Selected Christian Kyrou with the 50th overall pick. Christian was an AP with the Kings in the 2018-19 season, where he posted 2 assists in 1 game with the Kings. Kyrou signed with the Kings for the 2019-2020 season, after being selected by the Erie Otters in the 2019 OHL Draft. Kyrou played 14 games with the Kings, putting up 2 goals and 9 assists for 11 points in those games, before being called up to Erie, where he played the remainder of the season.
In the third round, the New York Rangers selected Bryce McConnell-Barker with the 97th overall pick. Bryce was an AP with the Kings in 2019-2020, while his brother Blake was captain of the Kings. That season, McConnell-Barker got into six regular season games, putting up 3 goals and 3 assists for 6 points, and 3 playoff games for the Kings, where he had an assist. Following that season, Bryce was selected fourth overall in the 2020 OHL Draft by the Soo Greyhounds.
Finally, with the very next pick in the draft, the 98th overall pick, which came in the fourth round, the New York Islanders selected Isaiah George. George was drafted in the 2020 OHL Draft by the London Knights and signed in Komoka for the 2020-2021 season. Isaiah did not get to play in any official games, but was a force in the modified pandemic games that were played.
Congratulations guys, the organization is proud of you!
