Rebuilding Kings think making playoffs is a realistic goal

Centers Alex Turcotte and Quinton Byfield were the Kings’ first-round picks the past two years but both might see short stints this season so as to not burn any time on their entry-level contracts. Neither player is in camp because they are participating in the World Junior Championship. Turcotte, who was the fifth overall pick in 2019, might have the edge in staying up for the full season after having nine goals and 17 assists at the University of Wisconsin last season.
