Defenseman Christian Ehrhoff signed a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Kings on Friday.

Financial terms were not announced. The Orange County Register reported on Aug. 23, when Ehrhoff agreed to terms with the Kings, that general manager Dean Lombardi confirmed the contract is worth $1.5 million.

Ehrhoff had three goals, 14 points, a plus-8 rating and 26 penalty minutes in 49 games for the Pittsburgh Penguins last season, averaging 21:45 of ice time. He missed 28 of Pittsburgh's final 34 regular-season games because of injuries and did not play after March 24.

The 33-year-old has 72 goals, 327 points, 483 penalty minutes and a plus-59 rating in 741 regular-season games during 11 seasons with the San Jose Sharks, Vancouver Canucks, Buffalo Sabres and Penguins. He has seven goals, 34 points, 64 penalty minutes and a minus-12 rating in 73 Stanley Cup Playoff games, and was a member of the Canucks when they lost to the Boston Bruins in Game 7 of the Final in 2011.
