The Los Angeles Kings have come to terms on a long-term extension with Slava Voynov.

The Los Angeles Kings have come to terms on a contract extension with defenseman Slava Voynov, the team announced on Tuesday evening.

The team announced that the deal is six years in length but did not include the financial terms of the contract. According to Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times, Voynov will earn a total of $25 million over the course of the agreement, which amounts to a $4.1 million average annual value against the salary cap.

Voynov completed the final year of his entry-level contract in 2013 and was scheduled to become a restricted free agent this summer. His new deal will begin in 2013-14 and will carry through the 2018-19 season. At that time, he will be eligible to become an unrestricted free agent.

The 23-year-old defenseman has accumulated 14 goals and 31 assists for 45 points in 102 career regular season games. In 18 games during the 2013 playoffs, Voynov scored six goals, which matched his total through 48 games in the regular season.
