Los Angeles Kings sign defenseman Jake Muzzin to 5-year extension

October 15, 2014

The Los Angeles Kings have retained another piece of their championship nucleus for the long haul, signing defenseman Jake Muzzin to a five-year contract extension, Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today in a team press release.

The 6-3, 216-pound Ontario native's new contract extends him through the 2019-20 campaign.  He has not played yet in a game with the Kings this season due to injury.

Muzzin, 25, has been a part of the Kings organization since signing with the team as a free agent on January 4, 2010.  He has played in 132 regular season games for the Kings and has 41 points (12-29=41) and 93 penalty minutes.  He has played in 43 career playoff games and has 15 points (6-9=15) and 14 penalty minutes.

More importantly, he also works well on the ice with star Drew Doughty.

During the 2014 Stanley Cup championship run, Muzzin played in all 26 games and had 12 points (6-6=12).  Among league defensemen, Muzzin ranked first in goals, second in PPG (three), and fifth in points.
