After spending almost the entire 2013-14 season in the American Hockey League, defenseman Jeff Schultz has agreed to a two-year contract extension with the L.A. Kings.
According to the blog MayorsManor, the 28-year-old Schultz will earn $850,000 in each of the next two seasons.
Schultz played the entire regular season with the Manchester Monarchs, the Kings’ AHL affiliate, but was called up to L.A. for the Stanley Cup playoffs and with veteran Willie Mitchell hurt. He appeared in seven post-season games, including the first game of the Western Conference final against the Chicago Blackhawks.
Schultz was forced to clear waivers in September after L.A.’s training camp wrapped up. The Kings initially signed Schultz to a one-year, $700,000 contract last July. Prior to that, he was initially placed on waivers for the purpose of a compliance buyout when he was a member of the Washington Capitals.
