There was good news for the L.A. Kings on Tuesday, and some bad news.
Results of Regehr's physical were ok. Deal was contingent on that. He's expected to participate in 1st practice w/Kings on Wednesday—

The bad news: veteran defenseman Willie Mitchell, who suffered a knee injury during the lockout and required surgery, needed another operation on his injured knee this week, according to a report in the L.A. Times, citing Mitchell’s agent Mike Liut.
The 35-year-old Mitchell, who hasn’t played a game all season, “should be ready for next season,” Liut told the L.A. Times in an email.
Mitchell has one more year left on his two-year, $7 million contract.
The Kings, defending Stanley Cup champions, lost 3-1 to the Phoenix Coyotes on Tuesday night.
