LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Kings signed forward Brayden Schenn to a one-day amateur tryout agreement Thursday.

The 18-year-old made his NHL debut Thursday night in Vancouver against the Canucks. Schenn, who wore No. 55, was given the tryout agreement because he hasn't signed an entry-level contract with the Kings.

Schenn, the younger brother of Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman Luke Schenn, was taken fifth overall by Los Angeles in last summer's draft. He has 39 points (12 goals, 27 assists) in 24 games with the WHL's Brandon Wheat Kings.

Schenn was signed after the Kings placed forward Andrei Loktionov on the injured reserve list with an upper-body injury. Loktionov, 19, appeared in one game for Los Angeles this season.

Schenn is the third-youngest player in Kings history to appear in a game.
