LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have signed goaltender Jean-Sebastien Aubin to a one-year contract, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced Tuesday. Per club policy, terms of the agreement were not announced.
Aubin, 30, played in 20 games last season with the Toronto Maple Leafs and had a 3-5-2 record, a 3.34 goals-against-average and a .876 save percentage. In 199 career NHL regular season games with the Maple Leafs and Pittsburgh Penguins, the 5-11, 180-pound native of Montreal has a 75-77-15 record, a 2.91 goals-against-average, a .901 save percentage and seven shutouts.
Originally selected by Pittsburgh in the third-round (76th overall) of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft, Aubin has twice won at least 20 games in the NHL, including a career-high 23 wins in 1999-00. He also that season finished first among NHL rookie goaltenders in wins, games played and minutes, and he finished second among NHL rookie backstops in save-percentage (.914), third in goals-against-average (2.58) and tied for fourth in shutouts (two).
In 2005-06, he recorded a 9-0-2 record, a 2.22 goals-against-average and one shutout for the Maple Leafs. Aubin has also played in one career NHL post-season game, with the Penguins, in 2000-01. He is expected to wear No. 1.
