Report: Kings assistant GM Futa signs multi-year extension

Mike Futa is reportedly staying with the Los Angeles Kings for the foreseeable future.


The assistant general manager has signed a multi-year contract extension with the club, according to the Los Angeles Times' Curtis Zupke.


Futa has been considered for several GM vacancies over the years, most recently with the Carolina Hurricanes before they decided to shift Don Waddell into the role. Futa was also as a reported candidate for the Buffalo Sabres' job that went to Jason Botterill last May.

The Kings promoted Futa to assistant GM in April 2017.


He previously served as the team's vice president of hockey operations and director of player personnel, and has been in the organization for the last 11 seasons.
