The Los Angeles Kings signed defenceman Frédéric Allard to a one-year, two-way contract extension worth $750,000, the club announced on Friday.

Allard was originally drafted by the Nashville Predators (78th overall in 2016) and acquired by the Kings in March for forward Brayden Burke. He started the 2020-21 season on loan with Villacher SV of the Austrian League before being assigned to the AHL's Chicago Wolves. After being traded to the Kings, the 6-1, 180-pound rearguard was assigned to the Ontario Reign, where he put up 10 points in 15 games.

The native of Saint-Sauveur, Que., had 177 points (34-143=177) in 250 games with the Chicoutimi Sauguenéens of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
