Kings sign Muzzin to two-year contract

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.

In 45 games with the Kings last season, Muzzin had seven goals, nine assists, 35 penalty minutes and a plus-16 rating. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound 23-year-old added three assists and six penalty minutes in 17 Stanley Cup Playoff Games.

Chosen by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the fifth round (No. 141) of the 2007 NHL Draft, he was signed by Los Angeles as an unrestricted free agent on Jan. 5, 2010. In 56 NHL games, he has seven goals and 17 points.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
