Kings sign Kolomatis to entry-level deal
The Los Angeles Kings announced Friday they have agreed to terms on a three-year, entry-level contract with 21-year-old defenseman David Kolomatis.

Kolomatis, selected by the Kings in the fifth round (No. 126) of the 2009 Entry Draft, played in 76 regular-season games this past season with the Manchester Monarchs of the AHL, scoring 8 goals and adding 21 assists. He was second among Manchester defensemen in points, tied for second in goals and tops with 5 power-play goals. He had 1 assist in the Monarchs' 15 playoff games.

The 5-foot-11, 189-pound native of Livingston, N.J., was tops among defensemen on Owen Sound of the Ontario Hockey League in points, goals and assists in 2008-09 before playing in four regular-season games and 16 postseason games with AHL Providence.







Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
