LOS ANGELES – The 2012 Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings have signed defenseman Kurtis MacDermid to a three-year entry level contract, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today.
MacDermid, 18, played last season with the Ontario Hockey League’s Owen Sound Attack. In nine games he had two assists and seven penalty minutes.
The 6-3, 186-pound native of Sauble Beach, Ontario also played with the Owen Sound Greys of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League (junior B level), recording nine points (3-6=9) and 80 penalty minutes in 20 games.
MacDermid participated at the Kings annual Development Camp in July.
Kurtis is the younger brother of Bostin Bruins prospect and former Attack forward Lane MacDermid and son of Attack co-owner and former NHL’er Paul MacDermid. The Sauble Beach native was recalled early in the 2010/2011 season from the Owen Sound Grey’s, however; missed a larger remainder of the season with Mono and a lower body injury.
