The undrafted 21-year-old had 30 goals and 20 assists with the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League last season. He then had one assist in five regular-season games with the Manchester Monarchs, the Kings' American Hockey League team and got into three games in the Calder Cup playoffs.
Sabourin had a minus-1 rating and two penalty minutes in one AHL game with Manchester this season.
It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
