02:40 PM ET 06.19 | The Los Angeles Kings have agree to a six-year, $25 million contract with Slava Voynov. The 23-year-old defenseman had an outstanding 2013 season with 25 points in all 48 games for the Kings, but he was even better in the playoffs, leading the team in goals and points. The deal appears to be a bargain for the Kings after it was speculated that Voynov would get $5 million per season, but the concern in LA is that his contract runs out the same year as Drew Doughty, potentially leaving the Kings with a summer of scrambling to re-sign their two best defensemen in 2019.

Nice. He's already a very good D-man. He kept saving Drew Doughty's bacon all playoffs long!

I can't even decide what to have for lunch and these Yahoos are worried about 2019.

The Kings were smart to lock him up long term now.
