Kings sign Fransson
The Kings have signed defenseman Johan Fransson to a one-year contract. Fransson became Kings property after the Feb. 2007 trade that sent Mattias Norstrom to Dallas, but Fransson had been unsigned and playing in the Swedish Elite League. Fransson, 25, is 6-foot-1, 183 pounds, and totaled 11 goals, 19 assists and 26 penalty minutes in 54 games last season for Lucea HF. Fransson was reportedly drawing interest from the KHL as well as at least one other NHL team, but now he will get a chance to make the Kings’ roster in training camp.
