Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - The Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday agreed to terms on a four-year contract with center Craig Conroy. In accordance
with club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The 32-year-old Conroy was part of the Calgary Flames' magical run to the Stanley Cup Finals this past season and posted six goals and 11 assists in

leadership skills and he has proven to be a clutch playoff performer."
As for the regular season, Conroy finished second on the team in points with 47 (8 goals, 39 assists). He is also a two-time finalist for the Selke
Trophy, awarded annually to the league's best defensive forward.
