The Los Angeles Kings signed defenseman Jeff Schultz to a two-year contract, the team announced Monday.

Schultz, 28, made his Kings debut in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs. He had no points in seven games after being promoted from the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League on April 30. He could have become an unrestricted free agent on Tuesday.

Schultz played in 67 regular-season games with the Monarchs last season. He had 13 points (two goals, 11 assists), 32 penalty minutes and a plus-10 rating.

The 6-foot-6, 225-pound Calgary native has 11 goals, 64 assists and 133 penalty minutes in 399 NHL regular-season games, all with the Washington Capitals.

Schultz was originally selected by Washington in the first round (No. 27) of the 2004 NHL Draft.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
