Forward Michael Cammalleri agreed to terms with the Los Angeles Kings on a one-year, $1 million contract Saturday.

"What I expect is scoring. That's one things Mike has been able to do throughout his career. It's one thing he does a lot. The opportunity here -- just knowing where we are with our team - and understanding the space we had available and what was out there in free agency. The scoring need we were looking for, Mike gives us an opportunity at that. He's familiar with Kopitar. He's familiar with Dustin Brown. He's got some ties."

Cammalleri had 31 points (10 goals, 21 assists) in 61 games with the New Jersey Devils last season, and has 613 points (287 goals, 326 assists) in 840 games through 14 seasons with the Kings, Devils, Calgary Flames and Montreal Canadiens.
