Los Angeles Kings sign forward Trent Hunter to one-year contract

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - The Los Angeles Kings have signed forward Trent Hunter to a one-year deal.

The Kings announced the deal Friday for Hunter, the long-time New York Islanders forward.

Hunter spent parts of the last nine seasons with the Islanders, scoring 229 points in 459 career games. He missed most of last season after surgery on his injured left knee, playing in just 17 games.

The Islanders traded Hunter in July to the New Jersey Devils, who waived him four days later. Hunter joined the Kings on a tryout contract two weeks ago, impressing coach Terry Murray in his bid to earn a roster spot as a depth forward.

Hunter has scored 99 career goals.
