Defenseman Derek Forbort of Duluth on Friday signed a three-year entry level contract with the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings. Financial terms of the agreement were not immediately announced.
Forbort, 21, a 6-foot-5, 207-pounder, formerly starred at Duluth East (Minn.) High School and recently completed his third season at the University of North Dakota.
He was a first-round selection (15th player overall) by the Kings in the 2010 National Hockey League Entry Draft.
Duluth Marshall top student-athlete Matthew Klassen will likely attend the College of St. Thomas in the fall and try out for the Tommies hockey team, he said in a Facebook private message today.
