The Los Angeles Kings agreed to terms on a new two-year contract for defenseman Andrew Bodnarchuk and a three-year entry level contract for defenseman Colin Miller on Monday.

Bodnarchuk appeared in 69 regular season games with the Manchester Monarchs – the Kings American Hockey League affiliate – last season, recording five goals, 20 points, 77 penalty minutes and a plus-17 rating.  The 25-year-old also appeared in four postseason games with the Monarchs last season.  Bodnarchuk, who served as a member of the Monarchs leadership group last season as an alternate captain, was originally selected by Boston in the fifth-round (128th overall) in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. 

Miller appeared in 54 regular season games with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League last season, recording 20 goals, 55 points, 78 penalty minutes and a plus-13 rating. The 20-year-old also appeared in six post-season games with the Greyhounds last season.  Miller, who last season served as a the Greyhounds captain, won the 2012-13 Mickey Renaud Captains Trophy, awarded annually to the OHL team captain who best exemplifies leadership on and off the ice, with a passion and dedication to the game of hockey and his community. 

The Kings drafted Miller, a 6-1, 175-pound native of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, in the fifth-round (151st overall) in the 2012 NHL Draft.
