The Los Angeles Kings and coach Darryl Sutter have agreed to terms on a new contract, the team announced Friday. 

The multi-year contract begins in the upcoming 2016–17 season.

The terms of the contract have not yet been released, but Sutter is expected to make in excess of $3 million per season.

General manager Dean Lombardi said last week that the team had extended a contract to Sutter, calling the dollar amount “very fair.”

Sutter has posted a 186–112 record since joining the Kings for the 2011–12 season. He holds a 42–27 playoff record, and led the team to Stanley Cup championships in 2012 and 2014.
