The Kings announced Monday that they have retained defenseman Alec Martinez, agreeing on a two-year contract and avoiding arbitration with the player, who turns 26 later this month. The announcement was made by Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi. Martinez played in 27 games last season, with a goal, four assists and 10 penalty minutes. He also played in seven of the team's 18 post-season games, contributing two assists. The 6-foot-1, 206-pound former 2007 fourth-round pick has appeared in 142 regular-season and 33 post-season games.

Canada's Team stood between the Kings and a spot in the Stanley Cup Finals nearly two decades ago. Now, it's merely the NHL's team. The NHL has owned the Coyotes since 2009 when it pulled the franchise out of bankruptcy for about $140 million. A warning to the Kings' lively Twitter feed: Mocking the Coyotes is like tweaking the NHL. Do it at your own peril. (But primers on bankruptcy, debt ratings and the power of the Arizona watchdog group the Goldwater Institute are best saved for another time.)
