The Kings settle two other files

Kings settle two more cases


Just 24 hours after settling forward Adrian Kempe's case, the Los Angeles Kings agreed to terms on a contract extension with two more of their forwards on Monday. Carl Grundstrom and Lias Andersson.

In the case of Grundstrom, he will extend his stay in California for the next two years, earning him a total of $2.6 million at the same time, have confirmed the Kings. For his part, Lias Andersson, could become a restricted free agent again at the end of the 2022-2023 campaign, because his contract is only for one year and is worth $750,000.

Grundstrom had been acquired from the Toronto Maple Leafs, who had selected the Swede in the second round (57th overall) of the 2015 draft, in the transaction involving, among others, defenseman Jake Muzzin. In 129 games on the Bettman circuit, all with the Kings, the 24-year-old amassed 36 points.

For his part, Andersson was a first-round pick (seventh overall) of the New York Rangers in 2017. He was traded to the Kings for a 2020 second-round pick in October of that year. In 109 NHL games, split between these two teams, Andersson has blacked the score sheet only 17 times.
