BREAKING: Barring a last-minute snag, Todd McLellan is on track to become the next coach of the Los Angeles Kings.
Official announcement could come as early as today.
My understanding is McLellan has accepted the role in principle, final touches are being put on a 5-year deal.

- Apparently you can scratch Todd McLellan off the Sabres list
- Todd McLellan will be the LA Kings new coach.
- According to Dennis Bernstein, the 51-year-old would have initialed a five-year deal.
- Hearing Todd McLellan’s contract will include a 2 M premium per season because the top line of his resume is “got the freaking Oilers to the second round of the playoffs”
- The news should be announced later during the day.
- Todd McLellan’s regular season point % is higher than Julien, Laviolette, Trotz, Torts, Gallant, and many more active coaches…
- It’s a league of guys that are swapped in and out like 3rd line wingers until they’ve made it.
McLellan made $3M per season in Edmonton. Expectation is he’ll make north of $4M with Los Angeles.
