Patrick O’Sullivan signs 3 Year Contract w/ Kings

October 7th, 2008 | Posted by admin in LA Kings

Dean Lombardi and Patrick O’Sullivan have come to a deal that will keep in a King’s jersey for at least 3 more years.  The King’s have been working hard to sign Patrick O’Sullivan to a long-term contract, however, it was intially reported that O’Sullivan was only interested in a short term deal.

O’Sullivan did not participate in training camp for the King’s while the two sides worked to create a deal that worked for both parties.  In the end, Patrick O’Sullivan has signed a 3 year contract with the Los Angeles Kings worth $2.925 million per season, with this year’s contract being frontloaded so the Kings would meet the salary floor of $40 million.

Expect O’Sullivan to be a little rusty coming into the season which starts on Saturday, but at least he will have a few days to skate with the team before they take on the Sharks on Saturday night.  He will probably be playing on the King’s top line with Kopitar and Dustin Brown.
