Is John Stevens Really The New Head Coach Of The Los Angeles Kings? Now Official

I found this link that goes to the story from LaKings.com but if you go to their home page, no mention of it.

LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Kings and John Stevens have agreed to contract terms for Stevens to serve as the club's new Head Coach, it was announced today by Kings Vice President and General Manager Rob Blake.

Stevens has most recently served as the club's Associate Head Coach. He has been part of the Kings coaching staff the past seven seasons.

The Kings are scheduled to host a news conference on Monday beginning at 1:30 p.m. in the Chick Hearn Press Room at STAPLES Center to formally introduce Stevens. It will be streamed live at LAKings.com. Kings season credentials will allow access into STAPLES Center for tomorrow's press event. Lunch will be provided to the media beginning at 12:45 p.m.

"John and I had very productive dialogue this last week in relation to his head coaching philosophy and specifically how he would implement a strategy to activate our players offensively while maintaining the defensive philosophies we have come to be known for," said Blake.

Why The Shake-Up For The Los Angeles Kings?

from Mark Whicker of the LA Daily News,

What Lombardi and Sutter never found was a replacement for Slava Voynov, who left on domestic violence charges in the fall of 2014, a Norris candidate in partial bloom.

Lombardi rewarded Dustin Brown, Marian Gaborik and Matt Greene for meritorious service. The contracts reeked of gratitude, but not realism. Chicago has won three Stanley Cups by protecting the core and profusely thanking Troy Brouwer, Patrick Sharp, Andrew Shaw, Dustin Byfuglien, Brian Campbell and Andrew Ladd as they show them the door

The Blackhawks beat the salary cap to the point that they have 14 players who make less than $1 million this season. And, even then, Chicago has not won back-to-back Cups. This stuff is hard.

Now the Kings see Justin Williams, Wayne Simmonds, Milan Lucic, Brayden Schenn and Jordan Weal thriving throughout the league. They wouldn’t have gotten Mike Richards without giving up Simmonds and Schenn, and probably wouldn’t have won that 2012 Cup. But at least when they missed the 2015 playoffs, they had the same regular-season record they did in 2012. The 2017 team was far more ineffectual. It cried for change.
