The Los Angeles Kings on Friday signed forward Trent Hunter to a one-year contract worth $600,000.

Hunter, who spent eight seasons with the New York Islanders before being traded to the New Jersey Devils this summer and subsequently bought out, had been in Kings training camp on a tryout.

Hunter, 31, recorded a goal and 4 points in 17 games last season, missing most of the season with a lower-body injury. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound native of Red Deer, Alta., has 99 goals and 229 points in eight NHL seasons. He's reached the 20-goal mark twice, including a career-high 25 for the Islanders in 2003-04, when he also rang up a career-high 51 points and plus-23 rating in 77 games.

Hunter has appeared in 14 Stanley Cup Playoff games, recording 4 goals and 5 points.

Originally drafted by the Anaheim Ducks in the sixth round (No. 150) in 1998, Hunter was dealt to the Islanders in May 2000 for a fourth-round pick in the 2000 Entry Draft.
