Kings Sign Forward To Extension

A strong start to the offseason has gotten even better for the Kings, as they now have signed Adrian Kempe to a four-year, $22 million contract extension.

Kempe had a breakout year in 2021-22, so it's fair to say that he has earned this sweet deal. In 78 games, he set new career-highs 35 goals and 54 points. The 25-year-old will now be aiming to keep this scoring pace up from here. 

In 390 career games with the Kings, Kempe has 90 goals, 96 assists, and 186 points. Time will tell how much these stats go up before this extension is completed. Overall, if he can continue to be this much of a scoring threat, this deal will be an excellent one for LA.
