The Los Angeles Kings have officially kept their Stanley Cup winning team intact.

The Kings reached agreement on Tuesday night with a key player in its run to the franchises' first Stanley Cup, agreeing to a two-year deal with winger Dwight King. The deal will pay him $750,000 over the two years.

The 6-3 winger was called up to the Kings from Manchester in February and the winger, who just turned 23, immediately paid dividends for Los Angeles, scoring five goals and assisting nine goals for a total of 14 points in 27 games for the Kings, helping them launch a late season drive to the playoffs. The postseason was also a great time for King as well, as he scored five goals and had three assists in LA's drive to its first Stanley Cup in the team's 45-year history.
