Another week has gone by without any progress on a new contract for restricted free-agent defenceman Luke Schenn.
“Nothing new,” agent Don Meehan said Friday, though both sides keep insisting they aren’t in a hurry. Both are examining everything term-wise from two years and higher.
Meehan also represents defenceman Drew Doughty, who was chosen three spots head of Schenn in the 2008 draft by Los Angeles.
Contract talks are also moving slowly on that front, which could pre-empt any deal with Schenn.
“I think it’s fair to say that in the last conversation, we set the parameters, as to where we feel (Doughty’s) contract should be,” Kings’ general manager Dean Lombardi told the Kings Insider website this week. “We talked about a number of scenarios, and I guess now it’s their move.”
