LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have signed forward Trent Hunter to a one-year contract, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today.
Hunter, 31, has spent his entire NHL career (2002-03 through 2010-11) with the New York Islanders. Last season he recorded four points (1-3=4) and 23 penalty minutes in 17 games, missing most of the season with a lower body injury.
NHL.com’s 30 in 30 takes a look at the New York Islanders today. The introduction to Brian Compton’s piece:
“The time is now for the New York Islanders. For a franchise that still doesn’t have a deal in place for a new building, it is imperative that the Islanders accelerate what has been a slow and steady rebuilding process and qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since 2007. GM Garth Snow believed he had assembled a playoff team last summer, then watched his top defenseman Mark Streit and power forward Kyle Okposo suffer serious shoulder injuries before the puck even dropped on the 2010-11 season.”

From Tom Gulitti at Fire & Ice:
Defenseman Colin White and right wing Trent Hunter cleared waivers at noon today without being claimed by another team.
The next step will be for the Devils to complete the buyouts of both players, which general manager Lou Lamoriello said Monday is the intention.

The buyout formula is two-thirds the remaining total monetary value on the contract spread over twice the remaining years on the deal.
