Kings Agree To Three-Year Contract With Stoll

LOS ANGELES – The 2012 Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings have agreed to terms on a three-year contract with center Jarret Stoll, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today.

Stoll, who turned 30 yesterday, recorded 21 points (6-15=21) and 60 penalty minutes in 78 regular season games with the Kings in 2011-12.  He added five points (2-3=5) and 18 penalty minutes in 20 playoff games, including the overtime game-winner in the series clinching Game 5 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals at Vancouver.

The 6-1, 213-pound native of Melville, Saskatchewan is now signed with the Kings through the 2014-2015 season.  He has led the Kings in faceoff winning percentage in each of his four seasons with the Kings, since being acquired from Edmonton (with Matt Greene) on June 29, 2008.

I am not sure this is that great of a deal for LA inspite of his 3rd line role. His bad penalty to score ratio is pretty high.

His face-off win percentage and penalty- killing skills are valuable assets. Stoll has to be one of the best third- line centers in the league. Plus, he can ‘roof it’ as good as anybody. Just ask Luongo’s replacement!
