L.A. Kings pick Helge Grans in Second Round of 2020 NHL Draft

LOS ANGELES, CA – The LA Kings have selected defenseman Helge Grans with the 35th overall pick in the 2020 NHL Draft.

Helge Grans is an interesting player with a profile that tends to project out well. He’s produced well at the junior level, played a lot of SHL games (albeit in limited minutes) and worked his way into a regular role on Malmo’s power play. He’s been a top player for Sweden’s U18 team and often the anchor from the point on the power play. I’ve seen very good flashes from him over the years, as he can make some very good passes from both ends and has a hard shot from the point.
