The Los Angeles Kings announced Wednesday the team had signed restricted free agent forward Brad Richardson to a two-year contract.

Terms of the deal were not released, but the Los Angeles Times is reporting the contract will lay Richardson a total of $2.35 million.

The 26-year-old center had 7 goals and 12 assists in 68 games for the Kings last season, and tied for the team lead in playoff scoring with 5 points in six games.

A 2003 fifth-round pick of the Colorado Avalanche, Richardson has 37 goals and 54 assists in 316 NHL games with the Avs and Kings.
