LA Kings (Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports)
The future of Alex Iafallo, the biggest question facing the LA Kings leading up to the trade deadline, has been answered.
Though the LA Kings‘ playoff chances may be looking grim these days, their biggest potential trade chip is sticking around.
Rather than trade pending unrestricted free agent forward Alex Iafallo ahead of Monday’s 3:00 PM ET/12:00 PM PT deadline, the Kings announced that Iafallo has agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $16M ($4M AAV).
Iafallo signed with the Kings in April 2017 after a four-year collegiate stint at Minnesota Duluth.
