The Los Angeles Kings have signed defenceman Cole Hults to a two-year, entry-level contract, the team announced on Saturday.
Hults most recently played NCAA-level hockey at Penn State University, completing a junior season in which he registered a career-high eight goals and 30 points, while tying his career-best assist total with 22.
Throughout his career with the Penn State Nittany Lions, Hults scored 17 goals and added 61 assists over 111 games.
He leaves the program as its all-time leader in goals, assists and points, and helped lead Penn State to their first two NCAA tournament bids in 2017 and 2018.
The 21-year-old was originally drafted in the fifth-round, 134th overall, by the Kings in 2017.
