LOS ANGELES (AP) - Left wing Marian Gaborik has agreed to a seven-year deal to stay with the Los Angeles Kings.
The Stanley Cup champions announced the deal Wednesday with Gaborik, who would have been an unrestricted free agent later this week.
The Kings acquired the Slovak goal-scorer from Columbus on March 5, and he was an immediate hit. Gaborik scored 16 points in 19 regular-season games before leading the NHL with 14 postseason goals during Los Angeles' run to the title.
Gaborik scored 22 points in 26 postseason games with the Kings before raising the Stanley Cup for the first time in his 13-season NHL career.
The Kings are the fourth NHL team for Gaborik, who also played for the New York Rangers and Minnesota Wild. He is a three-time NHL All-Star.
