  1. EL SEGUNDO [url=http://www.officialmapleleafsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-auston-matthews-jersey]Auston Matthews Jersey[/url] , Calif. (AP) Defenseman Drew Doughty has agreed to an eight-year, $88 million contract extension through the 2026-27 season to stay with the Los Angeles Kings.Los Angeles announced the whopping deal Friday for its two-time Stanley Cup-winning cornerstone.After cracking the Kings’ roster as an 18-year-old, Doughty has been among the NHL’s top defensemen throughout a 10-year career spent entirely with the Kings.He won the Norris Trophy as the league’s best defenseman in 2016. As an aggressive, skilled two-way blueliner, he has been a finalist for the award in three other seasons – including 2017-18, when he scored a career-high 60 points while playing in all 82 games for the fourth consecutive season.Doughty played a major role in the Kings’ Stanley Cup triumphs in 2012 and 2014, and he also has two Olympic gold medals from playing for Canada.”Drew Doughty is one of the best defensemen in the world, and we are obviously excited to have reached this point in the process in which he has committed to the Kings long-term,” Kings general manager Rob Blake said.He still has one year left on an eight-year, $56 million contract signed in September 2011. Doughty can’t formally sign the new deal until July 1, when he will be one year away from free agency.By the time his new deal ends, Doughty will be 37 years old. Neither the Kings nor Doughty seriously expected the defenseman to leave his adopted home in free agency next year. He grew up a Kings fan in southern Ontario [url=http://www.officialmapleleafsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-connor-brown-jersey]Connor Brown Jersey[/url] , and he was thrilled when Los Angeles chose him with the second overall pick in 2008.Doughty is second among Kings defensemen in career goals (102), assists (320) and points (422), trailing only Blake in every category. He also has appeared in 84 playoff games, scoring 51 points.The 28-year-old Doughty’s new contract has the NHL’s highest average annual value among defensemen, although it could be surpassed by the next contract for Ottawa’s Erik Karlsson, whose current contract expires in 2019.Los Angeles’ core of elite veterans is all signed to long-term contracts through at least the next three seasons. Those players include captain Anze Kopitar, goalie Jonathan Quick, Dustin Brown, Jeff Carter, Alec Martinez, Dion Phaneuf and newcomer Ilya Kovalchuk, who signed with the Kings earlier this week.— COLUMBUS [url=http://www.officialmapleleafsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-frederik-andersen-jersey]Frederik Andersen Jersey[/url] , Ohio (AP) — Nick Foligno had a feeling one goal might be enough.Foligno scored 40 seconds into the third period, Sergei Bobrovsky made 28 saves and the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Vegas Golden Knights 1-0 on Monday night.Foligno found the rebound after Seth Jones‘ shot and knocked it past goalie Malcolm Subban for the only goal in a tight, high-energy game.“I had a way better chance earlier in that shift and (Subban) made a heck of save, so I was really happy to be able to get a second opportunity,” said Foligno, who snapped a five-game goal drought. “Jonesey made a nice play to put it on net, and I was able to bang it home. It feels good to be able to help the boys.”Bobrovsky got his first shutout of the season and 25th of his career. He repelled a late attack after Subban was pulled for an extra skater with a minute left.“It’s got a little scary there in the second part of the third period,” Columbus coach John Tortorella said. “I thought that’s where Bob was outstanding. He made some great saves where the first two periods, he barely had work. We’re involved in these close games, and I think we’ve handled ourselves pretty well. Tonight we found a way to get the result.”Subban performed well starting in place of Marc-Andre Fleury in the second game of a back-to-back. He finished with 30 saves.“It’s a tough way to lose,” Subban said.The Golden Knights ended a four-game point streak that included three victories. They finished this trip 2-1-1.“We didn’t have a whole lot of chances in the first two periods, but I thought we started to play well when we got behind 1-0 [url=http://www.officialmapleleafsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-jake-gardiner-jersey]Womens Jake Gardiner Jersey[/url] , to be honest with you,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said. “We started having some chances, and Bobrovsky made some big saves late. It’s too bad we couldn’t finish this road trip off on a better note. The guys played hard but they didn’t have a whole lot in the tank tonight.”Columbus is 2-2-1 in the last five games, including a 2-1 overtime loss to Anaheim on Saturday.“I was so proud of the guys, the way we answered tonight,” Foligno said. “It was just a solid game again. It’s a credit to everyone in the room who understands where we’re trying to move this thing.”NOTES: Foligno was playing in his 800th game. … Vegas was 0 for 2 on power plays and Columbus failed to convert on its lone power play. … Blue Jackets F Artemi Panarin missed the game with a lower-body injury. Anthony Duclair, who was a healthy scratch the past two games, replaced him a wing on the top line. … Columbus recalled D Dean Kukan from Cleveland (AHL) on Monday, but he was a healthy scratch.UP NEXT:Vegas: Hosts the New York Islanders on Thursday.Columbus: Hosts New Jersey on Thursday.
