The Los Angeles Kings announced Friday they have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with restricted free agent defenseman Jake Muzzin. TSN reports it is worth $2 million.

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.
