The Los Angeles Kings have reached agreement on new contracts with centers Jarret Stoll and Colin Fraser, both of whom could have become unrestricted free agents on July 1.
Kings Insider reports that the three-year deal for Stoll carries an average cap value of $3.25 million -- down from $3.6 million for the past four seasons.
Stoll, the Kings' third-line center and faceoff specialist, scored a career-low six goals and added 15 assists in 78 games this past season, then scored twice (both game-winning goals) and added three assists in 20 playoff games as the Kings won the Cup for the first time in franchise history. He turns 30 on Sunday.
Fraser agreed to a two-year deal worth $825,000 per season. The 27-year-old joined the Kings last summer in a trade with Edmonton. After he recovered from a broken foot, Fraser totaled two goals and six assists in 67 regular-season games as a fourth-line center.
