LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Kings have reached agreements in principle to re-sign centers Jarret Stoll and Colin Fraser, two big contributors to their Stanley Cup title run.
The Kings say they reached the deals Friday.
Stoll, who turns 30 on Sunday, is the Kings’ third-line center and faceoff specialist. He also plays extensively on the Kings’ penalty kill.
The veteran has spent the past four seasons in Los Angeles. Although he matched his career low with 21 points in the regular season, he contributed five goals in the playoffs, including the series-winning overtime goal in the first round to knock out Presidents’ Trophy-winning Vancouver.
Fraser played extensively for the Kings on their depth lines before appearing in 18 playoff games. He scored Los Angeles’ first goal of the Stanley Cup finals.
