The Los Angeles Kings have signed starting goaltender Cal Petersen to a three-year deal with a $5-million cap hit. The deal will kick in during 2022-23.

Petersen played 35 games last year, posting a respectable .911 save percentage despite a 9-18-5 record. Petersen's stats have been solid in his short three-year NHL career and forced the Kings to give him more starting time over long-time No. 1 Jonathan Quick.

In the spring, Petersen won the top goaltender award at the men's World Hockey Championship with a 5-2-0 record, 1.29 GAA and .953 SP with two shutouts for USA. The Americans finished with a bronze, with Canada taking gold and Finland taking silver.
