Scott Sabourin signs entry level contract

The Los Angeles Kings have signed Scott Sabourin to a three-year, entry level contract.

The undrafted 21-year-old made his professional debut with Manchester at the end of the 2012-13 season after the completion of his 20-year-old season with the Oshawa Generals and had signed a two-year contract with the Monarchs in April.

The 6-foot-3, 203 pound forward successfully used his size in the rookie games against the Anaheim Ducks before finding chemistry and offensive chances with Valentin Zykov and Nick Shore in the split squad home game against the Phoenix Coyotes. In the Kings’ 6-0 preseason win in Anaheim, he beat Viktor Fasth up high on the goaltender’s short side with a quick release.

His skill set gravitates heavily towards that of a rugged power forward that is difficult to play against, and Frozen Royalty has a good write-up of the Kings prospect along with some quotes from Manchester coach Mark Morris on the impression Sabourin left during Los Angeles’ training camp.
