  • Kings' Brooks Laich: Finally lands deal
    By RotoWire Staff

    Laich agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with Los Angeles on Thursday, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports. Laich was with the Kings on a professional tryout during training camp and stayed around the team in hopes of securing a permanent deal. It took an injury to Jeff Carter (leg) for Los Angeles to make an offer to the center, who will mostly provide veteran depth, but could suit up on occasion.

  • Brooks Laich: Tryout agreement expires
    By RotoWire Staff

    Laich had his PTO deal with Los Angeles expire Sunday, but will continue to practice with the team, LA Kings Insider Jon Rosen reports. The former longtime Washington Capital didn't appear in the NHL last season, and if he's to do so in 2017-18, it's unlikely to be with the Kings. Laich is a three-time 20-goal scorer but hasn't skated well in recent seasons, which is likely what's kept him out of the NHL.

  • Kings' Brooks Laich: Secures PTO
    By RotoWire Staff

    Laich will join Los Angeles for training camp on a professional tryout agreement. A long-term deal for Laich is by no means a guarantee, considering the Kings' depth down the middle, including fellow tryout signee Andrei Loktionov. The 34-year-old Laich has appeared in just 81 games over the past two seasons -- tallying 14 points over that stretch -- so you probably shouldn't be relying on him for fantasy value regardless of whether he sticks with Los Angeles.

  • Laich (elbow) was on the ice for an informal workout with the Kings on Wednesday, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports, adding that the veteran is expected to garner a professional tryout agreement with the team. Laich publicly expressed his frustration with the Maple Leafs, the last NHL team he played for before going under the knife this past April. Still, even if the Kings issue him a PTO, it wouldn't be wise to put much stock in a guy who has played just 207 games since the 2012 season. He does wear the leadership hat quite well, but that only goes so far in the fantasy realm.

  • Laich underwent elbow surgery and is rehabbing neither with the Maple Leafs nor the minor-league affiliate Marlies, John Matisz of the Toronto Sun reports. Past reports indicated that the veteran center did not enjoy his experience in Toronto, where he was supposed to mentor a crop of phenoms, including fellow pivot Auston Matthews. Consequently, Laich was placed on waivers and ended up appearing in 27 minor-league games, producing one goal and eight helpers over that span. Judging by his apparent distaste for the Buds and the fact that the team is doing just fine without him, expect Laich to test the open market as an unrestricted free agent this summer.
