Kings and Anze Kopitar Agree To Terms On An 8-Year Contract Extension



LOS ANGELES –
The Los Angeles Kings and forward Anze Kopitar have agreed to terms on an 8-year contract extension, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today.

The extension begins at the start of the 2016-17 season and culminates at the end of the 2023-24 campaign.

Kopitar, 28, has spent his entire NHL career with the Kings after the club selected him in the first-round (11th overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. In 725 regular season games he has 645 points (230-415=645), a plus-62 rating and 194 penalty minutes, while in 70 postseason games he has 60 points (18-42=60), a plus-22 rating and 37 penalty minutes en route to two Stanley Cups.

Kopitar is the latest Kings player to be secured under a long-term contact, joining Jonathan Quick, Jeff Carter, Dustin Brown, Drew Doughty, Marian Gaborik, Jake Muzzin, Alec Martinez and Kyle Clifford.
