Athanasiou signed a one-year, $2.7 million contract with the Kings on Wednesday, per PuckPedia.

Athanasiou and the Kings had mutual interest in sticking together, and this deal makes it possible. The speedy forward had 23 points and 85 shots on goal through 47 contests last season, often playing in a middle-six role. The Kings could be a stronger overall team in 2021-22, which could lead to more offense for Athanasiou, who could interest fantasy managers in deeper formats.
