Kings announce Berube, Vey signings.

The Kings officially announced the signing of two prospects — goalie J-F Berube and forward Linden Vey — to entry-level contracts today. Berube’s deal had been anticipated since it was first reported by RDS last week. Both Berube and Vey get three-year deals.

Vey, who turns 20 in July, just finished his fourth season with the Medicine Hat Tigers of the Western Hockey League, going 46-70=116 in 69 games, leading the league in points. Listed at 5-10 and 166 pounds, Vey might have to work his way up to the NHL, likely beginning in Manchester.

Berube went 32-7-8 with a 2.60 goals-against average and .902 save percentage for the Montreal Juniors of the QMJHL in 2010-11. Berube, who also turns 20 in July, is all but assured to turn pro next season and would likely be assigned either to AHL affiliate Manchester or ECHL affiliate Ontario.
