Kings agree to deal with Willie Mitchell
The team announced the deal Wednesday.
Mitchell had four goals, eight assists and 48 penalty minutes in 48 games with the Vancouver Canucks last season. The 32-year-old was sidelined for 34 games after sustaining a concussion on Jan. 16 against the Pittsburgh Penguins. He also missed the playoffs.
In 2008-09, Mitchell set career highs for games played (82), assists (20), points (23) and plus-minus rating (plus-29). He helped the Canucks advance to the Western Conference semifinals that season.
