Kings sign Kevin Westgarth to two-year extension
That's a raise from the $525,000 the 6-foot-4, 228-pound winger will earn this season.
Westgarth, 27, had no goals, three assists and 105 penalty minutes in 56 games with the Kings last season.
The new contract follows another happy event in his life: Last month, he married Meagan Cowher, daughter of former NFL coach Bill Cowher. She and Westgarth met while they were students at Princeton, where she was an outstanding basketball player.
