Aidan Dudas signs three-year, entry-level contract - LA Kings Insider

A player signing!

The Kings announced today that they have signed forward Aidan Dudas to a three-year, entry-level contract. Dudas is currently representing Canada at the 2020 IIHF World Junior Ice Hockey Championships, being held in the Czech Republic.

Dudas made his professional debut last season with the Ontario Reign in the American Hockey League, as he collected two assists from six games played. Dudas was an energetic presence with Ontario, showing a knack for using his speed and playing a bigger game than his 5-8 frame suggests.

Dudas currently plays for and captains the OHL’s Owen Sound Attack, where he’s tallied 30 points (11-19-30) and a team-leading +12 rating from 23 games played this season.
