The Kings signed Rob Scuderi as a free agent on July 2, 2009.

LAKings.com caught up with the Kings newest defenseman, Rob Scuderi, to ask six questions about what he does during the offseason.

A member of the 2009 Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins, Scuderi, 30, led the Pittsburgh Penguins with a plus-23 rating, while tallying a career-high 16 points (1-15=16) and 18 penalty minutes.  He also logged a career-high 81 regular season games played this past season.  The blue-liner also led his team with 164 blocked shots and an average of 3:47 of short-handed ice time for the Penguins, who finished eighth in the NHL on the penalty kill (82.7 percent).  During the 2009 Stanley Cup playoffs, Scuderi added five points (1-4=5) and six penalty minutes in 24 postseason games while logging an average of 20:29 of ice time per game (second among D-men, fourth overall).
