Andrei Loktionov has agreed to a professional tryout (PTO) with the LA Kings ahead of the 2017-18 season.

The PTO means the 27-year-old native of Voskresensk, Russia could return to the team that drafted him 123rd overall in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He will attend Kings training camp in September.

Last season, Loktionov registered 27 points (12-15=27) in 58 games for Lokomotiv Yaroslavl of the KHL. He added 12 points (4-8=12) in 14 games during Lokomotiv's run to the Western Conference finals of the Gagarin Cup.

He scored his first NHL goal while a member of the Kings against the Carolina Hurricanes on Oct. 20, 2010.
