The Los Angeles Kings are still negotiating with prospect Bud Holloway.
"Yeah, we're still plugging away. . .It's like a lot of kids - he's a good prospect," GM Dean Lombardi said of Holloway who had 20 goals and 51 assists in 55 games with Skelleftea of the SEL last season. "I guess it's safe to say, him going over there, are the reports on him were all very good. He's played in the minors. But, until he gets on the NHL rink and you go through the ups and downs then you don't know for sure. But, it's fair to say that given what he did over in Europe, and again it's not an NHL playing field, that this is certainly a guy that is a good prospect. I think if he wants to be an NHL player, which I think certainly most of these kids do, particularly a Canadian kid like this, it makes a lot of sense. So, let's get over here and give it another shot. He's more mature. He's a better player. It's just a good prospect."
