Jake Muzzin has agreed to a two-year contract extension with the Los Angeles Kings.

The Los Angeles Kings have come to terms on a two-year contract extension with restricted free agent Jake Muzzin, the team announced on Friday afternoon.

While the financial terms of the agreement were not made available via the club, the Kings did announce that the agreement is two years in length. The deal will pay Muzzin a total of $2 million, which amounts to a $1 million annual average value against the salary cap, according to Darren Dreger of TSN. The 24-year-old defenseman completed a one-year, $577,500 contract in 2013, which carried a base salary of $67,500 at the American Hockey League level, according to CapGeek.com.

Muzzin appeared in 45 games with the Kings last season and recorded 16 points (seven goals, nine assists), 35 penalty minutes and averaged 17:54 of ice time per game. Originally selected with the No. 141 overall pick in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft by the Pittsburgh Penguins, Muzzin has played in 56 career regular season games, all of which have come with the Kings.
