The Los Angeles Kings signed forward Alex Turcotte to a three-year contract with a league-minimum cap hit of $775,000, the team announced Saturday.

The Kings drafted Turcotte fifth overall in 2019. The 23-year-old played 20 NHL games last season, accruing four points. He tallied 29 points in 35 AHL contests.

His extension is two-way in 2024-25 and one-way for the last two years of the deal.

Turcotte played on a star-studded U.S. NTDP team in his draft year. L.A. selected him before teammates Trevor Zegras, Matt Boldy, and Cole Caufield, among others, but he's yet to become a full-time NHLer.

The Kings will have to place Turcotte on waivers if they want to send him down beginning next season.

Turcotte has one goal and four points in 32 career NHL games.
