The Los Angeles Kings signed restricted free-agent defenseman Sean Walker to a four-year contract carrying an average annual value of $2.65 million, the team announced Friday.

Walker finished second among Kings blue-liners with 24 points in 70 games last season, trailing only Drew Doughty. The 25-year-old averaged 18:50 per game in his first full NHL campaign.

Among defensemen who played at least 500 minutes at five-on-five during the regular season, Walker's 55% Corsi For percentage ranked 13th in the league, according to Natural Stat Trick.

Los Angeles signed the Keswick, Ontario native as an undrafted free agent out of Bowling Green in 2018 - the same university Kings GM Rob Blake attended.
