Charles LeClaire / USA Today

The Los Angeles Kings have reached an agreement in principle with defenseman Christian Ehrhoff on a one-year contract.

The deal was first reported by TSN's Bob McKenzie. It is still pending a physical, but will be worth $1.5 million, according to SiriusXM's John Hoven. Kings general manager Dean Lombardi reportedly confirmed the terms to Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register.

Ehrhoff was limited to 49 games with the Pittsburgh Penguins last season due to multiple concussions. He scored three goals and added 11 assists. The 33-year-old was an unrestricted free agent.

The Columbus Blue Jackets were one of several other teams negotiating with the veteran blue-liner.

Ehrhoff signed a one-year, $4-million contract with the Penguins on July 1, 2014.
