LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings – the 2014 Stanley Cup Champions – have signed pending unrestricted free agent Marian Gaborik to a new seven-year deal, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today.
Gaborik tallied a league-leading 14 goals during the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs for the Kings, who captured their second Stanley Cup championship in three seasons. Gaborik’s 14 goals were one shy of the Kings single playoff year franchise record set in 1993 by Wayne Gretzky. Additionally, the 32-year-old native of Trencin, Slovakia, ranked fourth in Stanley Cup Playoffs scoring (22 points), tied for second in Stanley Cup Playoffs power-play goals (3), and tied for third in Stanley Cup Playoffs power-play points (8) while appearing in all 26 Kings postseason games.
The 2014 Stanley Cup championship was the first career championship for Gaborik, who rebounded from an injury plagued regular season with a postseason full of clutch performances.
