A Two-Year Contract Extension For Tanner Pearson And The Los Angeles Kings

LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have signed forward Tanner Pearson to a two-year contract extension, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today.

The 22-year-old Pearson (born on Aug. 10, 1992) is a 6-1, 205-pound native of Kitchener, Ontario, who has appeared in 67 career NHL regular season games, all with the Kings, totaling 23 points (15-8=23), a plus-16 rating and 22 penalty minutes.

Video- Tanner Pearson And Tyler Toffoli May Be Out For An Extended Period Of Time For The LA Kings

from Rich Hammond of the OC Register,

The Kings lost a lot on Saturday, including their top two young wingers and a chance at a remarkable comeback victory.

After a wild start, in which Winnipeg scored goals on its first three shots, the Kings rallied and took a third-period lead but then lost 5-4 in a shootout in front of 18,230 at Staples Center.

The result seemed secondary to the fact that the Kings must now go forward without both Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli, two of their top four goal scorers this season.

Shortly before the game, the Kings announced that Toffoli had been diagnosed with nononucleosis, an energy-sapping virus that will sideline him for multiple weeks.

Then, during the second period, Pearson battled with Winnipeg's Jay Harrison and went feet-first into the boards. Pearson has initially been diagnosed with a broken left ankle, as first reported on the Kings' official blog late Saturday night, but Pearson is scheduled to undergo more tests Sunday.

Tanner Pearson, who crashed heavily into the boards during a second period scoring opportunity in Saturday’s 5-4 shootout loss to Winnipeg, suffered a broken bone in his left leg, LA Kings Insider has learned. At this point, there is no timetable for his return.

“They told us he would not return, so I’ll give you more information as we go along,” Darryl Sutter said after the game when asked if he was able to provide any information on the nature of the injury.

A reliable source told LA Kings Insider during the second intermission that the injury was a broken ankle, information that hockey operations confirmed. A follow-up conversation with a third source said that the injury may be located more in the lower leg, and not the ankle.

Below, watch the Pearson injury...
