NHL roundup: Kings, LW King agree on three-year deal The Los Angeles Kings agreed to terms on a new three-year contract with restricted free agent left winger Dwight King, the team announced Wednesday.

The two sides agreed on a $5.85 million deal, forgoing the need for Friday's salary arbitration hearing, according to USA Today. The contract breaks down to annual salaries of $1.75 million, $2 million and $2.1 million and a cap hit of $1.95 million. He averaged $750,000 in his last contract.

The 25-year-old King has appeared in 157 career NHL regular-season games -- all with the Kings -- in the past four seasons. He has totaled 54 points (24 goals, 30 assists), 41 penalty minutes and a plus-14 rating.

--- The Winnipeg Jets agreed to terms with forward Matt Halischuk on a one-year, two-way contract worth $725,000, the team announced Wednesday.

Halischuk, 26, played 46 games with the Jets last season and had five goals, five assists and six penalty minutes. The Toronto native has played 203 games for the New Jersey Devils, Nashville Predators and Winnipeg. He has 64 points (30 goals, 34 assists) and 47 penalty minutes.

--- The St. Louis Blues signed forward Peter Mueller to a one-year, two-way contract, the team announced Wednesday.

Mueller, 26, dressed in 49 games for Kloten in the Swiss professional league (NLA) last season, leading the club and ranking third league-wide with 46 points, including a league-best 24 goals. After the season, Mueller was invited to play for the United States at the 2014 world championships and had four points (one goal, three assists) in eight tournament games.

Mueller's career in the NHL has been plagued by concussion issues. After suffering two concussions, Mueller missed the entire 2010-11 season. He also dealt with post-concussion symptoms that sidelined him for much of the 2011-12 season.
