UND’s Forbort signs contract with Los Angeles Kings

GRAND FORKS – University of North Dakota men’s hockey junior defenseman Derek Forbort is turning pro.

Forbort signed a three-year contract Friday with the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings, giving up his final year of college eligibility.

“Can’t thank the awesome people enough for everything over the past 3 years,” Forbort posted on Twitter. “What a special place.”

Forbort was selected in the first round by the Kings in 2010.

He is UND’s only anticipated early NHL signing.
