If Los Angeles Kings fans don’t know Brayden McNabb yet, they may get to do so next season.
The Kings announced they’ve re-signed the 23-year-old defenseman to a two-year contract. John Hoven at Mayor’s Manor reports the deal is worth $1.3 million.
According to Hoven, McNabb’s immediate future with the Kings may see him getting a shot to replace Willie Mitchell in their top-six and he’ll be given every opportunity to win a spot playing alongside Slava Voynov in training camp. The Kings acquired him from the Buffalo Sabres at the trade deadline in March.
McNabb stands at 6-foot-4 and 204 pounds and plays a physical game. Sounds a bit like Voynov’s former defensive partner who signed with the Florida Panthers on July 1. McNabb’s competition for ice time will be against veterans Robyn Regehr and Jeff Schultz. If Regehr is healthy, he may have a tough time breaking through.
