Forward Ethan Moreau passed his physical Monday and is expected to officially sign with the Kings on Tuesday, a team spokesman said.

On Saturday, the 35-year-old who is expected to give the Kings veteran depth at the forward position verbally agreed to a one-year, $600,000 deal pending the results of that physical.

Moreau played only 37 games with Columbus last season, scoring one goal and tallying six points, after suffering a broken right hand and a rib injury.

The first-round pick of the Chicago Blackhawks in 1994 has played in 900 games in his career, with 146 goals and 283 points in stints with the Blackhawks, Edmonton and Columbus.
