LOS ANGELES (AP) The Los Angeles Kings and coach Darryl Sutter have agreed to a multiyear contract extension that begins in the fall.

The two-time Stanley Cup champion coach reached an agreement that is reportedly for two more seasons with an option for a third. His current deal was to expire July 1.

''I have lots of coaching left,'' the 57-year-old Sutter said Friday during a conference call.

The Kings won the Cup in 2012 and 2014 before missing the playoffs last season. They led the Pacific Division for most of this season before finishing one point out of first place. They lost to San Jose in five games in the first round of the playoffs.

Sutter is 186-112-45 in the regular season since being hired in December 2011. Re-signing him was the first major task general manager Dean Lombardi faced this offseason. The Kings have six major unrestricted free agents, including forward Milan Lucic.
