NHL.com @NHL

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Times says Darryl Sutter has agreed to coach the Los Angeles Kings and will take over the team Tuesday.

The newspaper, citing a source familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly, reported Saturday that Sutter signed a contract a few days ago but needed to wrap up family matters and receive immigration clearance. The Times says that's expected to come through Monday, and he will be introduced Tuesday.

The Kings declined to comment to The Associated Press on the report.

The Kings fired Terry Murray on Monday. John Stevens coached the team Thursday night in a victory in Columbus and was behind the bench again Saturday night in Detroit.

The 53-year-old Sutter last coached with Calgary in 2006.
