The Los Angeles Kings have inked Jamie McBain to a one-year, two-way contract, per LA Kings Insider.
His new contract comes with a $600,000 annual cap hit and he would still earn $300,000 yearly in the minors. He had a one-way deal worth $550,000 in 2013-14.
The 27-year-old defenseman had three goals and nine points in 26 games with the Kings last season. He logged 12:41 minutes per contest, including an average of 1:44 minutes with the man advantage.
How much he’s used next season will likely depend on what happens with Slava Voynov. He took a plea to a misdemeanor count of corporal injury to a spouse and will spend 90 days in jail and serve three years of probation.
Voynov is still suspended by both the league and the Kings and it remains to be seen when or if those bans will be lifted.
