LOS ANGELES, July 24 (UPI) -- Coming off a poor season with Detroit, Luc Robitaille on Thursday signed a one-year contract to begin his third stint with the Los Angeles Kings.
Financial terms were not disclosed, but it should be considerably less than the $4 million he was paid in 2002-03, when he scored a career-low 11 goals and added 20 assists in 81 games.
Robitaille started his 17-year career with the Kings in 1984 as a ninth-round draft pick but is headed to the Hockey Hall of Fame as the highest-scoring left wing in NHL history. He has 631 goals and 688 assists in 1,286 games with Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, the New York Rangers and Detroit.
Robitaille, 37, returned to the Kings during the 1997-98 season but signed with Detroit as a free agent in 2001 and won his first Stanley Cup following the 2001-02 season.
