The Los Angeles Kings have agreed to multi-year contract extensions with President/General Manager Dean Lombardi, President, Business Operations Luc Robitaille and Head Coach Darryl Sutter.

The new contracts for Sutter and Lombardi are four-year deals.

“We are ecstatic that we have kept our leadership team in place both on the hockey side with Dean and Darryl and on the business side with Luc and remain in a position to continue competing for the Stanley Cup for many more years. 

"They have all done a fantastic job in their respective areas and they have put together outstanding leadership teams.  They collectively are a huge reason our franchise is enjoying the success we are enjoying.  Now the challenge is to stay on top of that mountain,” said Governor Tim Leiweke.

Lombardi was named the eighth general manager in Kings' history on April 21, 2006. 

As the club's President/General Manager, he is responsible for all hockey operations decisions, including all NHL player-personnel moves, directing the professional and amateur scouting staffs, negotiating all contract matters and overseeing the Manchester Monarchs.

Robitaille, who in 2009 was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame, is in his sixth season as Kings President, Business Operations.

Sutter is in his second season as head coach and his first full season after being hired on December 20, 2011.  Last year he helped lead the Kings to the franchise's first Stanley Cup championship.
