The Los Angeles Kings and head coach Todd McClellan have agreed to a one-year contract extension. With his original 5-year deal set to expire at the end of this season, the extension now has him locked up through the completion of the 2024-25 season.
Believe it’s a 1-year extension for McLellan in LA. Told agreement has been in place since early part of summer. https://t.co/lmNcO9mLFp

In four seasons at the helm in LA, McLellan’s teams have qualified for the playoffs twice and he’s compiled a regular season record of 141-115-34 record. His original contract was worth about $5 million per year.
Mayor’s Manor has learned, the contract extension was actually done at the end of last season. At that same time, assistant coach Trent Yawney also received a similar extension. Along with Jim Hiller’s previously reported deal with the club, this brings all three coaches into a two-year window (this season and next).
As we first reported in January 2022, GM Rob Blake received a contract extension through the end of 2024-25. Everybody is now synced up on the same timeline.
Earlier this summer, we reported AHL Ontario coach Marco Sturm received a multi-year extension to return to the Reign. From what we understand, his deal is also believed to expire at the end of 2024-25.
