MacDermid agreed to terms on a two-year, $1.75 million contract extension with Los Angeles on Friday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports. MacDermid logged a career-high 45 games for the Kings this season in which he generated three goals, five helpers and 51 shots while averaging 13:43 of ice time. The 25-year-old's new deal will likely see him cemented on the 23-man roster next season.
MacDermid managed just one assist in the season's final month before the hiatus. MacDermid is a physical defender that's valuable to his team but not to fantasy owners
MacDermid is leading Kings defensemen in hits per game, delivering 2.3 per contest in the 41 games he's played. MacDermid is a great physical presence on the ice, but for fantasy purposes, he's not really going to move the needle unless your league rewards hits. If your league is all offense, you'll get no value from him, as he has just three points this year.
MacDermid produced an assist and five hits in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Panthers. MacDermid had the lone helper on Gabriel Vilardi's first career goal early in the first period. The defenseman is up to seven points, 78 hits and 43 PIM through 36 contests. MacDermid is a low-scoring, physical presence who likely won't interest fantasy owners.
MacDermid potted a goal and picked up a fighting major in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Flames. MacDermid dropped the gloves with Milan Lucic in an energizing heavyweight tilt in the second period. The Kings' defenseman then tallied his third goal of the year early in the third period. He finished with three hits and a plus-3 rating, as well. The 25-year-old is up to a career-high five points to go with 69 hits and 43 PIM in 34 games.
