The Los Angeles Kings announced today that they re-signed forward Trevor Moore to a two-year contract extension. The deal is one-way and pays him $1.88MM per season, per CapFriendly.
Moore’s developed nicely for Los Angeles after being acquired from the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2020. He’s posted 28 points in 71 games across two seasons with the Kings, scoring 13 goals. Now 26 years old, Moore likely doesn’t have anything more than third-line upside, but that’s where Moore likely slots in next season with Los Angeles’ young core. He’s an adequate two-way forward, and will likely focus on continuing the improvement of his defensive game.
Moore will be 28 at the expiration of the deal. He’ll be hitting unrestricted free agency, and Moore could definitely see a pay raise if he impresses with Los Angeles in the near future. Across 123 total NHL games, Moore’s scored 18 goals and 41 points. Moore’s only playoff experience came in 2019 with the Maple Leafs, playing in all seven games against the Boston Bruins in their First Round series that year. Moore scored one goal in those seven games.

He deserves a lot more. Behind Kopi, he’s the heart of the lineup. Gives it all every play. Got a feeling he’s gonna light up the league this year. Glad we get at least 2 more years of him.
22 points in 56 games is trash. Guys a 3/4 liner at best….
Gonna light up the league….. hilarious
Yeah he’s a 4th liner lol. Thats more than acceptable production for the way he plays defense and goes all out at all times on the ice. Kings for the first time in years will be running out 4 solid lines.
Light up the league in what sense, like 50 points in 80 games type light it up
Yikes. How many points do you all have in the NHL right now?

Pretty sure that will get deleted cause it might hurt your witty bitty feelings. Weak. Not hilarious. He’s in his 4th or so full year and just coming into his own. Just wait. Talk your smack now.
4th year and 26 years old already. He’s entered his prime and so far has a career high of 23 points in 56 games. Could he get a little better? Sure. But he won’t be wowing many. Definately a useful depth player, but won’t be lighting up the scoreboard to the point it impresses anyone too much.

Wow! These comment sections have gotten so confrontational this last week. We all need to take a step back and remember, it’s just hockey. I now expect at least 3 comments about how dumb I am or some other nonsense.
How dare you rationalize being kind to one another! Go for the throat! Hockey is all we have! – of course I’m being facetious and I’m going to go against the grain and say I like this post and you’re not dumb.
