Rookie camp is underway for the Kings at Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, with 23 players vying for a coveted roster spot.

A year ago, 19-year-old forward Kyle Clifford was considered a long shot to survive training camp, but impressed management enough to make the opening-day roster. Clifford played a big role during the regular season and emerged as one of the most effective players during the playoffs.

The highlight of rookie camp is expected to be scrimmages on Wednesday and Thursday against the Phoenix Coyotes at Toyota Sports Center. Wednesday’s game is scheduled for 6 p.m. and Thursday’s at 2. The rest of the signed players will report Friday for physicals and Saturday for the opening day of training camp.

Here’s a list of the rookie camp participants, followed by their age, position, height, weight and 2010-11 clubs.
