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.
