The Los Angeles Kings have signed veteran forward Michael Cammalleri to a one-year, $1 million deal.

Cammalleri returns to Los Angeles after beginning his NHL career with the Kings during the 2002-03 season. He spent five years with the Kings before moving to Calgary, Montreal and New Jersey.

The 35-year-old Cammalleri has scored six goals 20 times in his career despite dealing with numerous injuries. He should provide a veteran boost to the Kings’ unimpressive depth forward lines.

The Kings also signed defenceman Christian Folin, goalie Cal Petersen and defenceman Stepan Falkovsky.
