LA Kings Extend Tyler Toffoli

LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have agreed to terms with forward Tyler Toffoli on a three-year contract extension, Kings Vice President and General Manager Rob Blake announced today. Toffoli’s contract will have an Annual Average Value (AAV) of $4.6 million.

The 25-year-old Toffoli (born on April 24, 1992) is a 6-0, 201-pound native of Scarborough, Ontario, who appeared in 63 games last season with the Kings, posting 34 points (16-18=34), a plus-6 rating (third on the team) and 22 penalty minutes.

A second-round (47th overall) selection of the Kings in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, Toffoli will be entering his sixth NHL season in 2017-18. He has appeared in 293 regular-season games posting 175 points (84-91=175), a plus-90 rating and 91 penalty minutes. His plus-90 rating ranks third on the Kings all-time list, and first among active players.

Toffoli was a part of both Stanley Cup winning teams. Overall he has appeared in a total of 43 playoff games with Los Angeles, recording 21 points (9-12=21), a plus-6 rating and 12 penalty minutes. During the 2014 Stanley Cup run he ranked first among all rookies in goals (7), points (14) and game-winning goals (2).

He posted career-highs during the 2015-16 season in goals (31), assists (27), points (58) and games played (82) while also leading the league with a plus-35 rating. He was the first King to break the 30-goal mark since Anze Kopitar did so in 2009-10.

I get what you’re saying, but aside from “they’re both forwards I guess”, they’re not really comparable, so it’s probably a bad time/place to yet once again trot out a chance to bash Abdelkader.

Do we have any inkling as to why his numbers decreased this year?  Nagging injuries?  Usage?  I’m curious why you think he’ll go back to 25-30 goals this next season.  He’s too old for a sophomore slump, so that drop-off has to be concerning.

No certainty but I suspect his knee bothered him more than they let on. Didn’t really get into the same position on the ice. Still showed his solid hockey sense but just seemed to lack a bit of spark.

To be honest, the whole team seemed to be out of synch most of the year.  But, yeah I had the same thought about him dealing with some nagging injury most of the year.
