LA Kings re-sign Kyle Clifford

The Los Angeles Kings and Kyle Clifford have agreed to a deal that will keep the Left Wing for a couple more years. They worked out a 2 year/$2.15 million deal, which is great for the Kings because Clifford was the last free-agent remaining from the organization.

Clifford’s physicality is something the Kings desperately wanted to keep, as the forward has racked up 40 points and 315 penalty minutes in 205 games since being drafted by the team back in 2009 (2nd round).

He was a part of the team’s 2012 run the to championship, albeit was short lived due to injury early in the postseason. He was able, however, to stay healthy throughout the 2013 playoffs though, playing in 14 postseason games. He also had 14 points in the regular season for the Kings.
