The Kings have now locked up all their restricted free agents for next season, as Rich Clune, Corey Elkins and Trevor Lewis have signed one-year contracts. (UPDATE: I’m told that all the players accepted their qualifying offers.)
Nothing new on the Ilya Kovalchuk front, although you can be almost certain that something will break soon. Why? Because I’m leaving tomorrow for my annual trip. So I’ll be lugging around the laptop like it’s the president’s “nuclear football,” and I’ll wait for the latest developments. In life, timing is everything!
