The 2019 LA Kings draft class is shaping up to be a good one. On Wednesday, the team officially signed defenseman Kim Nousiainen to a three-year entry-level contract.

Nousiainen, 21, was selected in the fourth round in 2019 and recently served as an alternate captain this season for KalPa of Liiga, Finland’s top hockey league.

In 35 games, the Finnish D man tallied four goals, ten assists, and 22 penalty minutes.

He had a small role for Team Finland at the World Championships in Riga. Latvia last summer, tallying one goal and one assist in eight games played.

Earlier this week, we reported that Nousiainen was joining the Ontario Reign on an ATO for the remainder of the season. Now, he joins fellow LA Kings prospects David Hrenak and Andre Lee, having recently signed his first entry-level contract.
