Kings rookie Alex Iafallo dedicated to learning the game – Orange County Register

EL SEGUNDO – When a player reaches the big leagues, he really doesn’t know how things will shake out in his rookie season. For Kings center Alex Iafallo, his initial campaign in the NHL has been pretty decent.

Iafallo, 24, has two goals and eight assists while averaging 16:07 of ice time. He also has 74 shots on goal. But he knows that with the second half of the season just ahead, when teams will battle for postseason berths, that learning curve is bound to get a bit tougher.

“Oh, yeah, it’s all learning from here,” said Iafallo, whose team on Saturday night at 7 will play at Vancouver. “And it’s good. I didn’t want it to be easy because it’s good to learn, and it’s good, every practice, every game, to learn and just understand how the game goes sometimes and using that to get better.”
