The Los Angeles Kings have signed unrestricted free agent defenseman Jeff Schultz to a deal.
He had no goals, three assists and 12 penalty minutes in 26 games with the Washington Capitals last season.
The Kings announced the deal Friday as the NHL's free agency period began.
Schultz has spent his entire NHL career with the Capitals, with 11 goals, 64 assists and 133 penalty minutes in 399 games. He was drafted by the team in the first round of the 2004 NHL entry draft. During the 2011 playoffs, Schultz set a league postseason record by being on the ice for 119 consecutive minutes without his team being scored upon.

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles Kings center Jarret Stoll was hospitalized Wednesday after suffering a seizure.
The Los Angeles Times reported that Stoll fell ill at his Hermosa Beach home.
Kings general manager Dean Lombardi told the Times that he visited Stoll in the hospital and the “bottom line is that he’s fine. Now the issue is what caused it.”

Earlier today, the Kings lost defenseman Rob Scuderi as an unrestricted free agent to, ironically, the Pittsburgh Penguins, the team the Kings signed him away from four years ago.

The Kings lost the first significant member of their Stanley Cup-winning team when free-agent defenseman Rob Scuderi went back to the Pittsburgh Penguins, signing a four-year deal worth 13.5 million.
His move came within the first hour of the opening of NHL free agency on Friday. The average annual value of the contract is 3.375 million, according to the Penguins.

Scuderi, 34, re-joins the Pittsburgh organization after spending the past four seasons with the Los Angeles Kings. The defensive-minded blueliner originally played five-plus seasons with the Penguins between 2003-09, helping the team to a Stanley Cup championship in 2009.

Well in all likelihood, their defensive group will go from 8 to 7 with the loss of Scuderi. It's gonna suck to see Rob go. The Piece as he is called has been one of the primary components of two championship teams. When he came to Los Angeles after winning the Cup with Pittsburgh, he said - "I didn't come here to lose." Rob Scuderi is a culture...
