Brooks Laich has signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Los Angeles Kings.

Laich took part in Los Angeles' training camp, but didn't secure a contract heading into the regular season. He continued to skate with the team in the hopes of landing a deal and that's happened now that the Kings have lost Jeff Carter indefinitely to a leg injury. Laich can earn $650,000 annually at the NHL level or $50,000 in the minors.

Brooks Laich will reportedly sign with the Los Angeles Kings soon.

Laich participated in the Kings' training camp on a tryout basis. He's continued to skate with the Kings after the preseason concluded despite the fact that he didn't have a contract. Now that Jeff Carter is out indefinitely with a leg injury, it seems Los Angeles will sign him.

Brooks Laich is focused on staying positive despite going into the season without a contract.

Laich attended the Kings' training camp on a PTO. He's still practicing with the Kings despite the fact that they haven't signed him yet. "Be grateful for the opportunity, show up as a good pro and show up as a good teammate," Laich said. "I’m going to focus on those things, and I believe that good things happen to good people, and if you do things right that over the long term, you’re going to win out, eventually. So maybe it’s not today, maybe it’s not tomorrow, but I hope at some point my opportunity will come with this organization."

Brooks Laich has continued to practice with the Kings despite being released from his PTO.

Laich is hoping for some clarity regarding his situation next week. The Kings ultimately might sign him if they run into injury troubles or one of their rookies isn't working out in the regular season.

Brooks Laich has been released from his PTO, but he could stay with the Kings and practice with the team.

It's still unclear if he will receive a contract, but if he hangs around long enough then he could end up with Los Angeles or with an AHL deal eventually.

Brooks Laich had his professional tryout with the Kings expire.

Laich is still with the Kings but has not been signed to a contract so his status is unknown at this time. We would expect the Kings to release him or possibly sign him to an AHL contract. He has no fantasy value.

Brooks Laich will reportedly join the Los Angeles Kings' training camp on a tryout basis.

Laich is a veteran of 764 NHL games, but the 34-year-old split the 2016-17 campaign between the NHL and AHL. If he does make the Kings it would be as a bottom-six forward as his potential offensive contributions at this stage of his career are minimal.

Brooks Laich cleared waivers on Wednesday.

He played in Wednesday afternoon's 3-2 win for the Marlies over Syracuse. Laich hasn't seen any NHL action this year.

He is just on regular waivers, so this isn't a precursor to his contract being mutually terminated. Laich expressed his preference to be moved by Toronto if he isn't part of the team's long-term plans. He has spent the entire year in the minors, but he's been limited to just 22 appearances.
Tue, Feb 21, 2017 12:37:00 PM

Brooks Laich has been sent down by Toronto.

The Leafs made the move after picking up Seth Griffith from waivers. Laich cleared waivers on Monday.
