Report: New deal between Kings and Kopitar 'far from done'
Bruce Fedyck / USA TODAY Sports

In December, the Los Angeles Kings were reportedly "very close" to inking Anze Kopitar to a massive long-term extension. Not so fast.

That contract extension may be "far from done," reported Darren Dreger on TSN's "Insider Trading" on Tuesday.

"Yes, there are components to this extension that have been agreed to, but there are also a number of pieces that they haven't signed off on - to the point, I'm told now, that it's almost at an impasse," Dreger said. "There's a lot of work that needs to be done between Dean Lombardi and the agent, Pat Brisson."

It was previously reported that both parties were closing in on an eight-year extension, worth approximately $9.75 million per year.

The talks don't appear to be a distraction for Kopitar on the ice. He's coming off an absolutely dominant four-point night Monday against the Detroit Red Wings.

The 28-year-old has 12 goals and 23 assists in 42 games this season.
