The Kings are set to give defenseman Tom Preissing a four-year, $11-million contract. This has yet to be signed/made official but it seems to be a done deal. (This is as reported initially by the Ottawa Sun.)
Preissing had seven goals, 31 assists and a plus-40 rating for Ottawa last season.
Interesting, he signed with San Jose out of college, but if my math is correct, it was about two weeks after Lombardi got fired from the Sharks.
More info later.
