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

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
