Defenseman Peter Harrold Signs with New Jersey Devils

Former Los Angeles Kings defenseman Peter Harrold has signed a one-year, two-way contract with the New Jersey Devils.

Harrold had played all 164 games of his NHL career with L.A.

He made his debut in 2006-07, notching two assists in 12 games.

He was often a healthy scratch, making it into just 19 games last season. He scored one goal and three assists.

His career-highs in goals (4), assists (8), points (12) and games played (69) came in 2008-09.

His personal best point total in the AHL was 43 (7 G, 36 A) in 49 games with the Manchester Monarchs in 2007-08.

Harrold is a two-way player as he is primarily a defenseman but can also play forward.

He was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Boston College, where he was team captain. He scored 40 points in his three seasons with the Eagles.

The deal is reportedly worth $550,000 if he plays in the NHL and $105,000 in the AHL.
