Jarome Iginla has spoken to some teams this summer, but he might retire if he doesn't find a team that works well for his family.

"It’s not as cut and dry as when I was young and we didn’t have any kids," Iginla said. "There is a point where we don’t want to keep moving them. If I keep playing, I look forward to that. I’ll be ready. If I don’t, I’ve had a great run and I’m very thankful for that." The 40-year-old forward is coming off a rough season where he was limited to 14 goals and 27 points in 80 contests. He believes that he can bounce back in 2017-18 though if he does extend his career. Iginla, who hasn't won the Stanley Cup, added that at this stage he'd want to be on a contending team.

Austin Wagner underwent shoulder surgery in June for a torn labrum and dislocated bicep tendon.

Wagner had 30 goals, 66 points, and 94 penalty minutes in 64 games with the WHL's Regina Pats last season. He added another 16 goals and 21 points in 22 playoff contests, but was hurt in the process. Given that Wagner will spend the summer recovering instead of undergoing more conventional offseason training, it's possible that the Kings will decide to keep the 20-year-old forward in the WHL for one more season rather than have him play in the AHL yet.

"We look forward to him adding to our team, and to our staff, a real team perspective from a person who was a high-end player, especially in the offensive zone. We have talked a lot during the process of building a coaching staff regarding the qualities of the people we wanted to bring aboard.
