The LA Kings signed forward Andreas Athanasiou to a one-year contract worth $1.2 million, according to Vice President and General Manager Rob Blake.

Athanasiou split last season between the Detroit Red Wings and Edmonton Oilers. The 26-year-old forward started the season with the Red Wings, posting 24 points in 46 games. He was traded at the deadline to the Oilers where he posted two points in nine games before the season was cut short. He went scoreless in four games with Edmonton during the postseason.
