"We're told that Kings GM Rob Blake for the first time began taking calls on Alex Iafallo judging his availability on the market and it seems like one of those things that's going to go down to the wire," reported TSN's Frank Seravalli on Thursday's edition of "Insider Trading." "These two sides are going to continue to try to hammer away at an extension."
Iafallo, 27, is a pending unrestricted free agent. He's in the final season of a two-year pact that carries an average annual value of $2.45 million. He's spent his entire career with the Kings since signing with the club in 2017 after completing his time at the University of Minnesota Duluth.
The winger ranks third on the Kings this season in goals (9) and points (23). He's collected 50 goals and 74 assists in 264 career games.
