Defenseman Willie Mitchell said his comfort level in Los Angeles and his belief that the Kings' nucleus “is a group that's capable of winning” were his prime motivations in agreeing to a two-year contract extension with the Kings instead of testing the free-agent market on July 1.

Voynov's emergence was one of the reasons the Kings were able to move defenseman Jack Johnson in the Jeff Carter deal with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

You could never quite call it a circus-type atmosphere for the Kings at the Toyota Sports Center, not with the Lakers occupying part of the El Segundo complex. But it came close Friday with the departure of defenseman Jack Johnson, the looming arrival of just-acquired forward Jeff Carter from Columbus, trade rumors engulfing captain Dustin Brown and the completion of defenseman Willie Mitchell's two-year, $7-million contract extension Not long after the trade for Carter became official, Brown became a trending topic on Twitter in Canada on Thursday night, rocketing like a hot initial public offering.

One disgruntled forward and one desperate team. That perfect hockey storm resulted in the struggling Kings' acquiring center Jeff Carter from the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday in exchange for defenseman Jack Johnson and a first-round draft choice in 2012 or 2013. If the Kings do not make the playoffs this season, the pick slides to next year. The deal reunites the 27-year-old Carter, a former 46-goal scorer, with Mike Richards, his close friend and former teammate in Philadelphia.

Whether it was the full moon, a simple homage or the sheer delight of finishing off a three-on-one, defenseman Jack Johnson dragged the Kings to a new place. Johnson "Tebowed" at Staples Center. It was the Kings' third goal in what turned out to be a 5-2 victory against the Washington Capitals on Monday night. Adding goals for the Kings were Kyle Clifford, Anze Kopitar, Jarret Stoll and Justin Williams (on the power play, no less). Kings goalie Jonathan Bernier, getting a rare start, won his third game of the season.
