The Los Angeles Kings re-signed restricted free-agent forward Alex Iafallo to a two-year, $4.85 million deal Wednesday.
The agreement means the sides will avoid an arbitration hearing, which was set for July 20. Iafallo, a former Minnesota Duluth standout, was the Kings' only player to elect for arbitration.
Iafallo, 25, collected 15 goals and 18 assists while playing in all 82 games last season, finishing fourth on the team in goals and sixth in points. According to the team, he was named the Kings' player of the year based on fan voting.
Iafallo scored 48 goals and added 73 assists for 121 points in 152 career games at UMD. After going undrafted in 2017, Iafallo joined the Kings on a two-year, entry-level deal and played in 75 games as a rookie, tallying nine goals and 16 assists.
Iafallo made $925,000 in each of his first two years in the league.
