The Los Angeles Kings have agreed to terms with defenceman Slava Voynov on new six-year, $25 million contract, with an annual cap hit of just over $4 million.

The new deal cannot be signed until July 5.

Voynov just completed his three-year entry-level deal and was eligible to become a restricted free agent on July 5.

The 23-year-old blueliner had six goals last season in 48 games, and had career highs in assists (19) and points (25). He also contributed six goals and seven assists in 18 playoff games.

Voynov was part of the Kings' Stanley Cup-winning club last season.
