The former Waterloo Black Hawk is set to earn $2.575 over a 3-year deal...

The L.A. Kings have announced they've signed restricted free agent goaltender Cal Petersen to a three-year contract extension.

The 24-year-old Petersen made his NHL debut last season with the Kings, playing in 11 games with a 5-4-1 record.

During his time in the United States Hockey League (USHL), Petersen played more than two full seasons for the Black Hawks. He set the Waterloo junior era record with 51 career regular season victories, which included 27 wins during the 2013-14 season when the Black Hawks claimed the Anderson Cup for having the USHL's best regular season record.

Petersen also had ten wins in 16 career playoff appearances, including helping Waterloo reach the 2014 Clark Cup Championship Series. That spring, he was recognized as USA Hockey’s "Dave Peterson Goaltender of the Year" Award winner.

From Waterloo, Petersen spent three seasons at Notre Dame. He was originally drafted by the Buffalo Sabres
