The Los Angeles Kings signed defenseman Kurtis MacDermid to a three-year, entry-level contract, the club announced Wednesday.

MacDermid, 18, played last season with the Owen Sound Attack of the Ontario Hockey League. In nine games, he had two assists and seven penalty minutes.

The 6-foot-3, 186-pound native of Sauble Beach, Ontario, also played with the Owen Sound Greys of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League, with nine points (three goals, six assists) and 80 penalty minutes in 20 games.

MacDermid participated at the Kings' Development Camp in July.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
