Observations

October 2019 – Lizotte who joined the team late last season only appearing in the final regular-season game for the Kings has surprisingly played his way into a spot on the 23 man roster. The forward impressed new head coach Todd McLellan with his preseason play. Not many gave Lizotte a chance to crack the team, but McLellan is beginning to trust the 21-year-old and has even gone as far as saying “If we had the draft this year, Blake Lizotte might have gone in the first round. I don’t know. He’s just a little bit older, he’s got a little more experience”.
(https://www.latimes.com/sports/hockey/story/2019-10-01/kings-coach-todd-
mclellan-breaks-down-roster) The center has opened the season on the third line with
Tyler Toffoli and Austin Wagner on his flanks and also seen time on the second powerplay
unit. Although he has received high praise from his head coach, he will still have to perform
and prove his worth, as many other youngsters are nipping at his heels for a chance of their
own should he falter. Julian Mongillo 

July 2019: Lizotte is a small-bodied center out of St. Cloud State University where he spent the last two seasons amassing a total of 69 points in 76 games played at the NCAA level. His quickness and vision on the ice allow him to play a bigger game than some might give him credit for based on his size. Lizotte is known to have a tenacity to his game and has shown the ability to win puck battles on the boards and play in multiple situations including being the net-front presence for the Huskies on the power play. Lizotte’s college career has come to an end as he was inked a three-year entry-level contract by the Los Angeles Kings. He joined the Kings roster late last season and made his NHL debut for them in the final game of the 2018-2019 season when the Kings took on the Las Vegas Golden Knights. He will be fighting for a roster spot with the Kings come training camp. Julian Mongillo
