Valentin Zykov Signed to Entry-Level Contract

19

Fresh off of a second straight point-per-game season in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, Valentin Zykov has been signed to an entry level contract by the Los Angeles Kings. Per Renaud Lavoie of TVA, the contract is for $2.207 million over three years, at an average of just over $735,000 per year. Zykov was the 37th overall pick (and the Kings' first pick) in the 2013 NHL Draft, and though he didn't make a huge jump over the past season, his regular season was consistent and his playoff campaign had plenty of highlights. The 18-year-old left winger is not eligible to play with the Manchester Monarchs in the AHL next season, so as John Hoven related, he will likely either return to Baie-Comeau after participating in the Kings' development camp this summer. We voted Zykov #8 in the Top 25 Under 25 last offseason; read Rudy's ode to Zykov right here.
