Journeyman goalie Deslauriers signs in KHL


Veteran netminder Jeff Deslauriers has inked with Dinamo Riga of the KHL, the club announced on Wednesday.

Deslauriers, 30, was at Los Angeles’ training camp on a PTO earlier this fall but was given his release at the end of September. Prior to his stint with the Kings, the former second-round pick (31st overall) at the 2002 NHL Entry Draft had appeared in 62 career games with the Oilers and Ducks.

His last NHL action came during the 2011-12 campaign, when he appeared in four games for Anaheim. Since then, Deslauriers has spent time in both the Minnesota and Pittsburgh organizations, largely as an American League depth option.
