LA Kings extend Sutter, Lombardi, Robitaille deals

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) - The Los Angeles Kings have given multiyear contract extensions to coach Darryl Sutter, general manager Dean Lombardi and president of business operations Luc Robitaille.

The Stanley Cup champions announced the deals Friday, a day before they begin defense of their title at home against Chicago.

Sutter took over for the fired Terry Murray in December 2011 and immediately led the Kings to the franchise's first championship. The veteran coach went 25-13-11 in the regular season before eighth-seeded Los Angeles' 16-4 rampage through the playoffs.

Lombardi has been the Kings' general manager since April 2006, drafting and signing most of the Kings' championship roster. He also hired Sutter, his former coach in San Jose.

Robitaille, the Hall of Fame left wing, has been in the Kings' front office since May 2007.

Quote of the Day

I just think about how much it hurts. The feelings aren't going to go away, probably never. It's just something that sticks with you for a long time.
