Kings make it official by announcing the signing of defenseman Jamie McBain

The Kings made it official and announced they signed defenseman Jamie McBain to a one-season contract Tuesday, which means they won’t have to play with only five healthy bodies on the blue line when they face the Ducks on Wednesday at the Honda Center. The Kings were forced to designate suspended defenseman Slava Voynov as a non-roster player in order to sign McBain and slip him under the NHL salary cap. Voynov is suspended by the league indefinitely after he was arrested on domestic violence charges last month in Redondo Beach.

McBain will be paid the NHL minimum of $550,000 while he’s with the Kings.
