Adrian Kempe had a remarkable season with 41 goals and improved even-strength defense. His new contract looks like a steal if he maintains this level of play.
Gabriel Vilardi had a breakout year with 23 goals and strong defensive play, after struggling in previous seasons. A restricted free agent, he's set for a nice payday.
Matt Roy is a reliable defenseman for the Kings, leading in blocked shots and contributing offensively with nine goals. As the team's unsung hero, he is a valuable asset for their future.
Anze Kopitar had a standout season for the LA Kings, scoring 28 goals and leading the team in scoring for the 15th time in 16 seasons. He is a versatile player who often goes unrecognized for his consistent performance.
Pheonix Copley's average performance held the fort until Korpisalo arrived, earning him a contract extension. He finished with a 4.7 GSAx, providing much-needed goaltending for the Kings.
