Devin Setoguchi continues NHL comeback, makes Kings' roster

BY foxsports • October 11, 2016

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) Forward Devin Setoguchi has agreed to a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Kings, continuing his NHL comeback after nearly two years out of the league.

The Kings announced the deal Tuesday while setting their regular-season roster for Wednesday's opener at San Jose.

The 29-year-old Setoguchi went to training camp with Los Angeles on a pro tryout. He spent eight seasons with four NHL teams, including four years with the Sharks.

But he hasn't played in the NHL since November 2014, when Calgary sent him to the AHL. He also struggled with an alcohol problem and depression, and he spent last season playing in Switzerland.

Setoguchi was solid in camp with Los Angeles. The Kings played him on their top line with captain Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown.
