LA Kings finalize new deals for Stoll, Fraser

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Kings have finalized contracts with forwards Jarret Stoll and Colin Fraser.

The Stanley Cup champions announced the deals on Monday. The Kings confirmed tentative agreements on both contracts last Friday.

Stoll gets a three-year deal worth $9.75 million, while Fraser has a two-year deal worth $1.65 million.

Stoll and Fraser were key depth forwards during Los Angeles' run to its first championship. Both could have been unrestricted free agents this summer.

Stoll matched his career low with 21 points in the regular season, but played extensive minutes on the Kings' third line and top penalty-killing unit.

Fraser, who played mostly on the fourth line in his first season with Los Angeles, scored the first goal of the Stanley Cup finals against New Jersey.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
