KINGS INK D JOHNSON TO SEVEN-YEAR EXTENSION

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - The Los Angeles Kings have signed defenseman Jack Johnson to a seven-year, $30.5 million contract extension, keeping him with the team through the 2017-18 season.

The Los Angeles Times reports Johnson would make $3.5 million the first three years and $5 million in each of the final four seasons of the pact. The deal matches the second-longest in club history. Kings center Anze Kopitar also signed a seven-year extension on October 11, 2008, and former Kings great and Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky signed an eight-year contract in 1988 (after the first year that contract was extended from seven years to nine years).

Johnson's extension was announced following Saturday night's 6-4 win over the Blue Jackets, a game in which Johnson had a trio of assists. He has four goals and 27 helpers this season, his fourth full campaign in the NHL. He has 21 goals and 68 assists over 241 career contests.

"That's great for Jack," said Los Angeles head coach Terry Murray. "He's a young guy that's going to be a great player in this game for a long time, so it's great to get him locked up. Those young defensemen are very hard to find, the guys with skill and talent and ability like that."

He's no kovy :P

Now this would have suited him...his & the kings style of play...much better a place for Kovalchuk to have landed a deal than N.J.Devils.

Kings got hosed big time by that recent no call on the high stick that gave the Coyotes a go-ahead goal. Another example of the NHL screwing up (and doing it on instant replay no less) and then trying to fine GM's and coaches for complaining about it. The league should be ashamed of the way it runs itself, it's really not that far off from a dictatorship that's being run... you can't complain about the refs or the league officials, yet there is no effort made to admit mistakes or make changes to reduce their occurrence, so how else will they get better?
