Kevin Gravel (born March 6, 1992) is an American professional ice hockey defenseman currently playing with the Ontario Reign in the American Hockey League (AHL) as a prospect to the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected by the Kings in the 5th round (148th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit]

Gravel previously played collegiate hockey for St. Cloud State University in the NCAA Men's Division I National Collegiate Hockey Conference. After his senior year, Gravel continued his 2013–14 season by signing an amateur try-out contract with the Manchester Monarchs of the AHL.

On August 4, 2014, Gravel continued within the Los Angeles Kings organization, in agreeing to a one-year AHL contract to continue with affiliate, the Monarchs.[1] In his first full professional season in 2014–15, Gravel established a position on the blueline with the Monarchs, contributing to the club's first Calder Cup Championship in their last season in the AHL.

On July 2, 2015, the Los Angeles Kings signed Gravel to a two-year entry-level contract.[2] To begin the 2015–16 season, Gravel was reassigned to new AHL affiliate, the Ontario Reign. After 42 games with the Reign, Gravel received his first NHL recall to the Kings on February 11, 2016.[3]
