After two years in the LA Kings organization, defenseman Daniel Brickley has found a new home: with the AHL’s Chicago Wolves.

Former LA Kings prospect Daniel Brickley has officially moved on from the silver-and-black.

According to TheAHL.com, the 26-year-old defenseman has signed with the AHL’s Chicago Wolves for the 2021-22 season.

A standout at Minnesota State University, Brickley was one of the most sought-after undrafted free agents in 2018 when the Kings signed him. He made his NHL debut on April 6, 2018, recording an assist against the Minnesota Wild.

From there, however, Brickley’s career slowed.

Brickley would become hampered by injuries since then, playing just four more games for the Kings — and two more with the AHL’s Manitoba Moose. The native of Sandy, UT, however, was more productive last season, scoring three goals and three assists in 23 games for the Ontario Reign.

At season’s end, however, the Kings elected not to re-sign the blueliner.

Brickley, who stands at 6-foot-3, 203 pounds, certainly has a plethora of potential and hopes that a change of scenery will bring him better success.

  1. I’m a big fan of Bricks. Glad he found a home. I suspect he’ll work his butt off to become a top 6 defenseman. When he comes to Ontario, I’m wearing his jersey.
