LA Kings re sign Tan­ner Pear­son to 4-year, $15 mil­lion deal

Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

Forward Tan­ner Pear­son has agreed to a four-year, $15 mil­lion con­tract to stay with the Los An­ge­les Kings. The Kings an­nounced the deal Tues­day. Pear­son had a ca­reer-high 24 goals and 20 as­sists for the Kings last sea­son, just his sec­ond full NHL cam­paign. He has emerged as one of the low-scor­ing Kings’ top of­fen­sive threats in the past two years, scor­ing 39 goals while miss­ing just five games. The 24-year-old for­mer first-round draft pick won a Stan­ley Cup ring in 2014, scor­ing 12 points in 24 post-sea­son games. He would have been a re­stricted free agent this summer.
