Nolan agrees to two-year contract with Kings
Restricted free-agent forward Jordan Nolan has agreed to terms on a two-year deal with the Kings, the team announced Sunday. With the agreement, Nolan will avoid arbitration, which had been scheduled for Aug. 1.
Nolan's contract is worth $1.4 million, sources told The Times.
Nolan, 24, who was part of the Kings' 2012 Stanley Cup championship team, had six points (two goals and four assists) in 44 games last season. He also appeared in seven postseason games.
Selected 186th overall by the Kings in the 2009 draft, Nolan has 10 points in 70 games with the Kings.
With Nolan returning, forwards Trevor Lewis and Kyle Clifford remain the Kings' restricted free agents. Lewis has an arbitration meeting scheduled for Aug. 2.
The team's acquisition of tough guy Daniel Carcillo from the Chicago Blackhawks casts doubt on whether the Kings are planning to keep Clifford, who hasn't filed for arbitration.
