No talks between the LA Kings and Vladislav Gavrikov yet
The Fourth Period: The Los Angeles Kings would like to re-sign trade deadline acquisition, defenseman Vladislav Gavrikov. It appears that Gavrikov would have interest in re-signing with the Kings.
There haven’t been any contract talks according to TFP’s Dennis Bernstein. The Kings are trying to move out some salary before making any major roster decisions.
The Kings will likely have to sweeten the pot to move goaltender Cal Petersen. He has two years left at $5 million per. Right-handed defenseman Sean Walker has a year left at $2.65 million.
It’s not known what kind of term and money Gavrikov is looking for.
