The Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League signed Zack Mitchell from the Minnesota Wild on Saturday. It is a two-way one year contract worth $650,000. 

Last season with the Minnesota Wild, Mitchell played 23 regular season games and had three goals and two assists for five points. He was a minus-two with four penalty minutes, one power-play goal, one game-winning goal, 17 shots on goal, 15 faceoff wins, 26 hits, 10 blocked shots and 11 takeaways and zero giveaways. The fact that Mitchell has 13 takeaways and only one giveaway in his National Hockey League career is extremely impressive. 

Mitchell's first NHL career goal was also a game-winning goal. It came on Oct. 26, 2017, in a 6-4 Wild win over the New York Islanders. 

Mitchell is 6'1" and 195 pounds. The 25-year-old shoots right. 

There is a strong possibility that Mitchell will see extensive playing time this season with the Kings' top minor league affiliate, the Ontario Reign. Mitchell played 42 games last season with the Iowa Wild of the American Hockey League. He had 16 goals and 17 assists for 33 points. 

The Los Angeles Kings will begin their 2018-19 National Hockey League regular season on Oct. 5 against the San Jose Sharks at Staples Center. For tickets, please click here.
