The Los Angeles Kings have reached agreements in principle to re-sign centers Jarret Stoll and Colin Fraser, two big contributors to their Stanley Cup title run.
The Kings say they reached the deals Friday.
Stoll, who turns 30 on Sunday, is the Kings' third-line center and faceoff specialist. He also plays extensively on the Kings' penalty kill.
The veteran has spent the past four seasons in Los Angeles. Although he matched his career low with 21 points in the regular season, he contributed five goals in the playoffs, including the series-winning overtime goal in the first round to knock out Presidents' Trophy-winning Vancouver.
Fraser played extensively for the Kings on their depth lines before appearing in 18 playoff games. He scored Los Angeles' first goal of the Stanley Cup finals.

The 19-year-old Pearson is a late bloomer by NHL draft standards. He was draft-eligible for the third time after failing to get picked in each of the past two years, but a dynamic...
TANNER PEARSON - 1-30
Okay, so everyone says nice things about the kid. Two way player. Good hockey sense. But will he be Brayden Schenn or Colten Teubert? Drew Doughty or Thomas Hickey? Years from now there are gonna be a lot of Kings fans who are full of crap when they tell you, "This is the kid I wanted at #30!"
NIKOLAY PROKHORKIN - 4-121
How can you trust a guy...
I haven't seen any of these guys play, have you?
By the time they're ready to play in the NHL, I'll be collecting social security (if it's still around).
The Kings are hoping Scott Howson is stupid enough to actually KEEP the #30 pick.

The 2011-2012 season officially ended last night with the 2012 NHL Awards Show in Las Vegas. While the Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup, the big winners on the year were St Louis, Sweden and, in my opinion, Nashville, even though they didn't go back to Music City with as much hardware as they would have liked.
For a season that started with a record breaking number of...
It's a jam packed week of activities for the NHL. The NHL Awards Show was last night, and the League will welcome it's newest batch of talent tomorrow night when the NHL Draft gets underway. But they managed to squeeze one more headline in this week, when the 2012-2013 regular season schedule was released earlier today.The season is set to kickoff on Oct. 11. But the game...
It's so funny how I used to actually care about the NHL Awards and the NHL Draft. But then the Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup for the 1st time... and I just can't find the effort to care about anything else. So instead... The Royal Half Mom provided me with a review of the NHL Awards Show from this past Wednesday night.
Like devoted hockey fans, Dad and I watched...
