The Los Angeles Kings have signed defenseman Paul LaDue to a one-year, two-way contract extension, Kings Vice President and General Manager Rob Blake announced on July 14. 

LaDue’s contract carries an AAV of $874,125 at the NHL level.

The 24-year-old LaDue (born Sept. 6, 1992) is a 6-2, 201-pound native of Grand Forks, N.D. who made his NHL debut last season with the Kings, appearing in 22 games, posting eight points (0-8=8) and four penalty minutes.

At the time of his Feb. 1 recall he ranked tied for first in goals and third in assists among team defensemen. 

Among AHL rookie defensemen he ranked fifth in goals, tied for ninth in assists, tied for eighth in points and tied for second in power play goals (four; tied for ninth among all AHL defensemen).

A sixth-round (181st overall) selection of the Kings in the 2012 NHL Draft, LaDue played for three seasons at the University of North Dakota, playing in 123 games and posting 62 points (16-46=62), a plus-53 rating and 68 penalty minutes.
