Stoll signs three-year deal to stay with Kings
The Kings announced Monday night that they have re-signed Jarret Stoll to a three-year contract

Jarret Stoll isn't going anywhere.

The Los Angeles Kings announced Monday night that they have re-signed the 30-year-old center to a three-year contract. Stoll could have become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Stoll tallied 21 points (6 goals, 15 assists) and 60 penalty minutes in 78 regular-season games and went 2-3-5 in 20 playoff contests, helping Los Angeles win its first Stanley Cup championship.

The 6-foot-1, 213-pound native of Melville, Saskatchewan is now signed with the Kings through the 2014-2015 season. He has led the Kings in faceoff winning percentage in each of his four seasons with the Kings, since being acquired from Edmonton (along with Matt Greene) on June 29, 2008.

The eight-year NHL veteran spent his first four full NHL seasons with the Oilers (2003-2008). In 593 career NHL regular-season games, Stoll has recorded 317 points (119 goals, 198 assists) and 448 penalty minutes. In 55 career playoff games, he has 19 points (7 goals, 12 assists) and 46 penalty minutes.

Stoll wasn't the only one to sign a new deal with the Kings on Monday, as center Colin Fraser also agreed to a two-year contract.

Fraser, 27, had eight points (2 goals, 6 assists) and 67 penalty minutes in 67 games with the Kings this past season, his first in Los Angeles. He also had a goal and an assist in 18 postseason contests.

The Kings acquired Fraser from Edmonton for Ryan Smyth and a seventh-round selection in the 2012 NHL Draft on June 26, 2011.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
