Los Angeles Kings sign unrestricted free-agent defenceman Tom Preissing

The 28-year-old American blue-liner had 38 points (7-31) in 80 regular-season games with the Ottawa Senators last season while posting a staggering plus-40 rating. He added seven points (2-5) in 20 playoff games.

Preissing will earn $2.75 million a season, a huge over the $600,000 he made last season in Ottawa.
