The Los Angeles Kings have signed restricted free agent forward Andy Andreoff to a two-year contract, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced Wednesday.
The 24-year-old Andreoff (born on May 17, 1991) is a 6-1, 206-pound native of Pickering, Ontario who appeared in 18 regular-season games last season with the Kings. He registered three points (2-1=3), a plus-1 rating and 18 penalty minutes. In seven regular season games with the Manchester Monarchs, he collected 10 points, including a hat trick on Dec. 17,
2014 against Portland.
A third-round (80th overall) selection of the Kings at the 2011 NHL Draft, Andreoff appeared in his first NHL game last season on Oct. 14 vs. Edmonton. He tallied his first goal, March 16 vs. Arizona. The goal was also the game-winning goal, becoming the first Kings player to have his first career goal also be the game-winning goal since Jordan Nolan did so on Feb. 12,
2012 at Dallas. In the last game of the season, Andreoff recorded his first multi-point game (1-1=2), April 11 vs. San Jose. His assist that night also marked his first career assist.
