The Los Angeles Kings have agreed to terms with coveted free-agent defenseman Daniel Brickley.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Kings agreed to terms with coveted free-agent defenseman Daniel Brickley on Thursday.
Los Angeles also signed forward Mikey Eyssimont to a two-year, entry-level deal.
Brickley had 10 goals and 25 assists in 40 games this season as a junior at Minnesota State. He also played for the U.S. team at the 2017 world championships.
Brickley was an unrestricted free agent because he went undrafted, and several teams competed for his services. He considered Detroit and San Jose before choosing Los Angeles.
Brickley also was coveted by NHL teams as a free agent last spring, but chose to return to Minnesota State as a junior.
The Kings will introduce Brickley at a news conference Friday in Salt Lake City, Brickley’s hometown. He is the nephew of former Bruins forward Andy Brickley, who also played for the IHL’s Utah Grizzlies.
Eyssimont scored 39 points in 39 games for St. Cloud State this season, leading the Huskies with 17 goals. He was a fifth-round draft pick by the Kings in 2016.
