Top Kings News

  • Kings' Jaret Anderson-Dolan: Extends with Kings

    Anderson-Dolan signed a one-year, $750,000 extension with LA on Saturday, per LA Kings Insider Zach Dooley.

    Anderson-Dolan went scoreless in seven games last season after posting seven goals and four assists in 2020. The 22-year-old center will likely shuttle between LA and AHL Ontario as a depth option in 2022-23.

  • Kings' Gabriel Vilardi: Signs extension

    Vilardi signed a one-year, $850,000 extension with the Kings on Saturday, per LA Kings Insider Zach Dooley.

    Vilardi, a first-round pick in 2017, had five goals and two assists in 25 games with the Kings last season. The 22-year-old center still has some upside but will likely be battling for a roster spot in training camp.

  • Kings' Pheonix Copley: Hollywood-bound on one-year deal

    Copley signed a one-year, $825,000 contract with the Kings on Wednesday.

    Copley's deal is one-way, which means he'll earn the same salary in the NHL and AHL. The 30-year-old is a veteran netminder who has yet to really break through to the NHL level. He has a 2.38 GAA and a .913 save percentage in 35 games with AHL Hershey last season, and he should slot in behind Cal Petersen and Jonathan Quick on the Kings' goalie depth chart.

  • Kings' Tobie Paquette-Bisson: Earns first NHL deal

    Paquette-Bisson secured a one-year, two-way contract with the Kings on Wednesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Paquette-Bisson went undrafted coming out of the QMJHL and started his professional career in the ECHL with Cincinnati. Last year, the blueliner logged 55 games for AHL Laval in which he garnered three goals and 16 assists. Even with an NHL contract in hand, the Quebec native shouldn't be expected to see much, if any, time with the Kings next year and figures to be an organizational depth piece.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Signs one-year extension

    Lemieux signed a one-year, $1.35 million contract extension with the Kings on Wednesday.

    After not receiving a qualifying offer and becoming an unrestricted free agent, Lemieux has re-signed with LA at a slightly lower price tag. The 26-year-old winger drew into 50 games with the Kings last season, picking up eight goals, 13 points, 97 PIM and 122 hits while averaging 10:45 of ice time per contest. The 26-year-old winger will likely post similar numbers in 2022-23, so he won't be a viable fantasy option in most formats.

  • Kings' Alexander Edler: Re-signs with team

    Edler signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Kings on Tuesday, LA Kings Insider Zach Dooley reports.

    Edler was limited to a mere 41 games for Los Angeles this season which resulted in him failing to reach the 20-point threshold for the second straight year. Still, if the 36-year-old defenseman can get into more games for the Kings next season, he should be capable of getting back to being a 30-point producer.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Not receiving qualifying offer

    Lemieux was not issued a qualifying offer from the Kings on Monday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

    Lemieux will become an unrestricted free agent Wednesday after tallying 13 points in 50 games last season. He also dished out 122 hits while averaging 10:65 of ice time. The 26-year-old could garner some interest as a cheap depth forward this offseason.

  • Kings' Lias Andersson: Signs on for another year

    Andersson signed a one-year, $750,000 contract extension with the Kings on Monday.

    Still just 23, Andersson first suited up for NHL duty back in 2017-18 as an 18-year-old with the Rangers. He's produced minimally since then with just 17 points in 109 career NHL contests, so the 2017 No. 7 overall pick doesn't project to offer much by way of fantasy value anytime soon.

  • Kings' Carl Grundstrom: Signs extension Monday

    Grundstrom signed a two-year, $2.6 million contract extension with the Kings on Monday.

    Grundstrom has spent the bulk of each of the last two seasons with the Kings, pitching in 26 points across 101 games. He's been far more productive at the AHL level with 70 points in 97 contests, but clearly the team is happy enough with his development to award the 24-year-old with a deal carrying a cap hit ($1.3 million) worth nearly double the league minimum. Grundstrom also scored three goals in Round 1 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs against Edmonton in May.

  • Kings' Adrian Kempe: Secures four-year extension

    Kempe signed a four-year, $22 million extension with the Kings on Friday, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.

    While the deal's final terms could change once the team officially announces it, it's expected to be in the $5.5 million AAV range. Kempe is coming off a breakout year in which he set new career highs in goals (35), points (54), hits (111) and average ice time (18:45), amongst others. His previous career-high 16 goals came during the 2017-18 campaign. Kempe is expected to be a staple in Los Angeles' top six as well as the top power-play unit again next season.

  • Kings' Jack Sparkes: Upside pick for Kings in Round 6

    Sparkes was selected 180th overall by the Kings in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft on Friday.

    Sparkes is the ultimate high-end, long-term lottery ticket. He resisted overtures from the OHL, instead playing this season in the Ontario Jr. League, to maintain his upcoming collegiate eligibility at Michigan State. Sparkes is impossible to miss on the ice, if for no other reason than he stands 6-foot-8. Sparkes can really shoot the puck and loves to throw his huge frame around. That's the good news. The bad news is that virtually every other aspect of his game is a work in progress. Check back on Sparkes' progress in two or three years.

  • Kings' Otto Salin: Falls to Kings in Round 5

    Salin was selected 148th overall by the Kings in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft on Friday.

    There's reason to believe Salin could have gone significantly higher had he not missed the better part of the first three months of the season due to injury. He showed enough at the Jr. level (12 points in 11 games) to earn an eight-game trial with HIFK's men's top team in Finland's Liiga, and played just fine in the brief sample. Salin is both cerebral and creative offensively. He is smart enough and skilled enough to take advantage of any openings the opposition may provide, although the jury is still out on how effective he will be in his own zone. Salin's a thick kid at 5-foot-11 and about 200 pounds, so he should be able to improve defensively over time.

  • Kings' Angus Booth: Joins Kings in Round 4

    Booth was selected 116th overall by the Kings in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft on Friday.

    Booth was a key cog on defense this past season for a Shawinigan team which won the QMJHL Championship before falling to Hamilton in overtime in the semifinals of the Memorial Cup. Booth is a solid skater who plays a steady game in all three zones. He can provide some secondary offense as he showed this year (23 points in 42 games), but he seems unlikely to ever be a significant point producer as a professional. Booth's greatest value is to help provide long-term defensive depth to the the Los Angeles organization.

  • Kings' Jack Hughes: Picked by Kings in Round 2

    Hughes was selected 51st overall by the Kings in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft on Friday.

    The "other" Jack Hughes, this one will never be mistaken for the guy who went No. 1 overall in 2019 but is still a solid prospect regardless. Hughes' father, Kent, is a former highly regarded player agent and current GM of the Montreal Canadiens. Jack quickly carved out a massive role for Northeastern as a true freshman, posting seven goals and 16 points in 39 games. The amazing thing is that Hughes has more natural offensive ability than those numbers would indicate. He is primarily a playmaker and it would be nice to see him shoot the puck more. Hughes has a bottom-six floor with a middle-six ceiling, depending on how he adjusts to the speed and pace of professional hockey.

  • Kings' Frederic Allard: Signs one-year extension

    Allard signed a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Kings on Friday.

    Allard spent the entirety of the 2021-22 season in the minors, picking up 15 points through 51 games split between AHL Milwaukee and AHL Ontario. The 24-year-old blueliner will likely spend most, if not all of the 2022-23 campaign in the minors.

  • Kings' Matt Villalta: Signs two-way deal

    Villata signed a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Kings on Thursday, per PuckPedia.

    Villalta is still likely third on the Kings' goaltending depth chart at best, with Jonathan Quick and Cal Petersen likely to occupy the top two spots. As such, Villalta will probably spend most or all of 2022-23 with AHL Ontario.

  • Kings' Kevin Fiala: Inks new deal after trade

    Fiala signed a seven-year, $55.125 million contract with the Kings on Wednesday, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.

    Fiala was acquired via trade from the Wild earlier Wednesday, and the Kings wasted no time in making sure to get a deal in place for the 25-year-old winger. He'll carry a cap hit of $7.875 million per year for a contract that will set him up to potentially cash in once more in his early 30s. Fiala can be penciled in for a top-six role alongside one of Anze Kopitar or Phillip Danault heading into 2022-23, and he should also see a fair amount of power-play time.

  • Kings' Kevin Fiala: Rights acquired via trade

    Fiala's NHL rights were acquired by the Kings from the Wild on Wednesday in exchange for a 2022 first-round pick and Brock Faber.

    Fiala will become a restricted free agent July 13, which gives the Kings plenty of time to get the winger signed to a new long-term deal. Considering the Switzerland native set new career bests in goals (33), assists (52) and ice time (17:39 per game), Los Angeles will certainly have to shell out more than the $5.1 million Fiala made last season. Despite his price tag, the 25-year-old winger would be a solid addition to the Kings and provide a top-six scorer that could once again push for the 30-goal threshold.

  • Kings' Vladimir Tkachev: Returning to Russia

    Tkachev signed a one-year contract with Avangard Omsk of the KHL on Monday.

    Tkachev made his NHL debut in 2021-22, logging two assists in four games with the Kings. He had 29 points in 41 contests with AHL Ontario, but he'll play back in his hometown in Russia in 2022-23. The Kings will need to extend the pending restricted free agent a qualifying offer to retain his NHL rights, but at 26 years old, it's no guarantee he'll return to North American hockey in his career.

  • Kings' Jacob Moverare: Inks two-year deal

    Moverare signed a two-year, $1.525 million contract extension with the Kings on Wednesday.

    Moverare made his NHL debut in 2021-22, logging two assists across 19 games as a bottom-four option. The 23-year-old defenseman should have a chance to return to a similar role next season as the Kings may opt to get younger on the blue line.
