Ivanans gets extension

Forward Raitis Ivanans received a two-year contract extension from the Kings. The 29-year-old enforcer, in his second season with the team, had four points and 80 penalty minutes in 43 games entering tonight’s game in Philadelphia despite missing time with a fractured cheekbone. Terms of the agreement were not announced, but I’ll see what I can find out. The timing looks like a reward for his fight with George Parros of the Ducks on Thursday, though I’m sure it was in the works for longer. Not an Earth-shattering signing but Ivanans does serve an important role as the only King who can really fight.
