The Los Angeles Kings are in the midst of a significant offensive slump.
Los Angeles has been shutout in back-to-back games, the Kings have gone three straight games without a goal in regulation time, and their last five-on-five goal was on Feb. 1. It wouldn't be surprising to see the Kings end that drought Thursday night against Florida, but it's part of a bigger issue. Los Angeles has averaged just 2.43 goals per game, which puts them in 24th place in the NHL. Feb 9 - 4:34 AM

Thursday marks the fifth anniversary of the Los Angeles Kings hiring Darryl Sutter.

That proved to be a turning point for the Kings as Sutter led them to a 25-13-11 record for the rest of the regular season and then to a Stanley Cup championship. That proved to be the first of two championships the Kings would win under Sutter. Lately things haven't gone as well as Los Angeles is 16-13-3 this season, but they've also been missing starting goaltender Jonathan Quick for nearly the entire season to date. After how successful Sutter's run with Los Angeles has been, it's interesting to think of how tentative this all initially was. "I spent my Christmas alone, sitting there by myself saying, ‘I don’t know about this,’" Sutter recalled. "And when I came it was basically for the year. I didn’t sign anything. I still had to deal with Calgary and the farm. I just wanted to make sure that I liked it and that when Wanda and Chris were able to come, they liked it."

With a victory over Detroit on Thursday, the Los Angeles Kings have earned 900 points under GM Dean Lombardi, which is a franchise high for a general manager.

Lombardi took over as the Kings' general manager in 2006. At the time the Kings hadn't made the playoffs since 2002, but of course they turned things around and went on to win the Stanley Cup in 2012 and 2014. So far this season the Kings are barely clinging onto a playoff spot with their 15-12-2 record, but they haven't had the use of starting goalie Jonathan Quick for nearly the entire season to date.

Los Angeles' victory over Pittsburgh on Thursday was coach Darryl Sutter's 600th career victory.

Sutter is the 14th coach to ever reach that milestone. He's accomplished it over tenures with four squads as he won 110 games with Chicago, 192 with San Jose, 107 with Calgary, and now 191 with Los Angeles. Overall, Sutter has a 600-438-101-75 career record.

Darryl Sutter has officially agreed to a multi-year contract extension.

Los Angeles didn't reveal any of the terms of Sutter's deal, but it's reportedly worth more than $3 million annually and it's a two-year deal with an optional third season. This signing was already previously reported, but now it's official. Under Sutter's leadership, the Kings won the Stanley Cup in 2012 and 2014. However, their last two seasons have ended on a sour note. In the regular season, the Kings have gone 186-112-45 under Sutter.

Kings coach Darryl Sutter has reportedly agreed to a contract extension.

That's not official yet, but Lisa Dillman went on to say that an announcement is expected as early as Friday, so we might not have to wait much longer. The Kings revealed less than a week ago that they had presented Sutter with a multi-year contract. The last two seasons have been largely disappointing for Los Angeles, but Sutter led them to championships in 2012 and 2014. He has a career 595-432-101-75 record.

Darryl Sutter said that he is "still undecided" about coaching the Kings next season, according to HNIC’s Elliotte Friedman.

Friedman talked to Sutter via text message. He said that he wants to see what the Kings look like after free agency, the cap and prospects. That his family has enjoyed Los Angeles "has weight," but "a big factor" is the chance to win a Stanley Cup. He has gone 186-112-45 as the bench boss in L.A., winning two Cups.

The Los Angeles Kings have offered a new multi-year contract to coach Darryl Sutter.

The Kings have won two Stanley Cups under the direction of Sutter and while money does not seem to be the stumbling block, the direction of the team may be. The Kings were knocked out in the first round of the playoffs this season after missing the post-season last year but still two Cups in five seasons is not something to sneeze at.

Darryl Sutter served in his 1,200th game as a head coach on Monday.

Sutter is just the 15th coach to ever accomplish that feat. After stints with Chicago, San Jose, and Calgary, Sutter is in his fifth season with the Los Angeles Kings. His tenure with the Kings has been the most successful run of his career as he's won the Stanley Cup twice with them. Overall, Sutter ranks 14th on the all-time coaching list with 593 wins.

The Los Angeles Kings are closing in on their second divisional title in their 49 years of existence.

The Kings only previous title occurred in the 1991 season and they are currently one point up on the Anaheim Ducks for the Pacific crown. The Kings have won the Stanley Cup in two of the last four seasons so there is plenty of proof that you don't have to win your division to win it all.

The Los Angeles Kings special teams are off to a slow start after two games.

The Kings are scoreless in 10 power play chances and have given up two goals in 11 penalty killing chances. The only redeeming factor was that Tyler Toffoli, who led the NHL in shorthanded goals last season with five, scored the Kings lone goal Friday while shorthanded.

Philadelphia's Paul Holmgren will serve as the assistant GM, while Calgary Flames President of Hockey Operations Brian Burke will work as Senior Advisor. USA Hockey Assistant Executive Director Jim Johannson will be the Director of Hockey Operations. The tournament will take place in Toronto between September 17 and October 1.

The five new California franchises in the AHL will play fewer games than the rest of the league.

The AHL schedule will have most teams playing 76 games while the California teams will only partake in 68 contests. "The feeling in development is if you play three-in-three, it’s a tough game. The third game is not a real development game," Los Angeles assistant GM Rob Blake said four months ago. "We can get away from that if it’s a reduction if there are a certain amount of games during the season." The AHL is worried about all the extra travel Bakersfield, San Diego, San Jose, Stockton and the Ontario Reign will do to the players, resulting in the reduced schedule.
