Armstrong played in 56 games with the Los Angeles Kings last season, scoring 5 goals and adding 4 assists for 9 points, along with 63 penalty minutes. He spent the last six seasons with the Kings after brief appearances with the Islanders, Ottawa Senators and New York Rangers, as well as a season in Switzerland.

His best offensive season was 2006-07, when he had 11 goals and 33 assists for 44 points with the Kings. His career high in goals is 14, in 2003-04.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
