Jack Campbell signed a two-year, $3.3 million contract extension with the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. It has an average annual value of $1.65 million.

The 27-year-old goalie is entering the final season of a two-year, $1.35 million contract ($675,000 average annual value) he signed on Nov. 22, 2017.

"It's great. You know, I love this place, management, players, coaches, fans," Campbell told L.A. Kings Insider. "It's great to be around for a little longer, so I'm really excited.

"[Contract talks started] right at the end of the year, we talked and just got something done yesterday night. It's exciting. I try to stay out of it, just kind of talk to my agent and let him handle it and it's just nice to get something done for sure."

Campbell played in an NHL career-high 31 games last season (25 starts) and was 10-14-1 with a 2.30 goals-against average, .928 save percentage and two shutouts.

Acquired in a trade with the Dallas Stars on June 25, 2016, Campbell is 12-15-3 with a 2.41 GAA, .925 save percentage and two shutouts in 38 NHL games (30 starts) with the Stars and Kings.

"They took me in and gave me a chance," he said of the Kings. "I'm just so grateful about it and I don't really know what to say. It's just a big honor and I'm just ready to keep working."

Campbell was selected by Dallas in the first round (No. 11) of the 2010 NHL Draft.
