LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Darryl Sutter has reportedly signed on as the new head coach of the Los Angeles Kings.

According to various media reports, Sutter has signed a multi-year contract and he will be introduced as their new coach on Tuesday.

The sources also noted that immigration issues have prevented the Kings from formally hiring Sutter but that the 53-year-old Viking, Alta., native has already been in communication with members of team management regarding player scouting.

The Kings fired coach Terry Murray on Monday and replaced him with John Stevens on a interim basis.

Kings general manager Dean Lombardi had Sutter as his coach in San Jose from 1997 until he was fired in 2002.

Sutter's last coaching job was with the Calgary Flames but stepped down in 2006 to focus on being the team's general manager.

In December 2010, he resigned as Flames GM.
