Kings Sign Defenseman To Extension

The Los Angeles Kings have signed Jacob Moverare to a two-year, $1.525 million contract extension.

Moverare appeared in his first 19 NHL games this season with the Kings. During them, he recorded two assists and sported a plus-3 rating. Overall, the 23-year-old handled himself pretty well and should receive more chances at the NHL level from here. 

Moverare primarily spent this season with the Ontario Reign, however. In 30 games with the AHL squad, he scored three goals and had 10 points. 

Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see how well Moverare improves from here. Perhaps he will have a permanent spot in their top six at the start of next season.
