No trades to report just yet, but per Rich Hammond, the Los Angeles Kings have locked up forward Justin Williams for the next four years. He signed a deal that will keep him with the Kings for four years at $14.6 million, with an annual cap hit of $3.65 million. It’s a solid deal, and not overwhelmingly expensive, but we’ll have to see how it plays out.
Justin Williams has netted 20 goals and 29 assists this season, and has been a contributing element to the Kings offense. He’s not the focal point, but as a right winger, he is the kind of player that the Kings can count on to chip in some goals and help spark the offense for the next few seasons. He’s only 29 years old for the moment, so he’s still relatively young and has some more productive seasons left in him.
In all, I give the signing a solid B grade. How about you?
