Kitchener Rangers goaltender Jacob Ingham has signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the L.A. Kings.

The Barrie, Ont., native led the Ontario Hockey League in wins with 33 and posted a 2.96 goals-against average, a .917 save percentage and two shutouts.

Ingham was named the Rangers’ most valuable player at the end of the shortened 2019-20 season and was presented with the team’s humanitarian award for his work as an ambassador for Hockey Gives Blood.
