CHICAGO (AP) Moments after Jaret Anderson-Dolan was drafted by the Los Angeles Kings, he hugged his mothers Fran and Nancy. They cried a few tears as Anderson-Dolan made his way to the floor of the United Center for handshakes and congratulations from his new team.

It was a slight variation on a familiar picture at the NHL draft. And just another Saturday for the 17-year-old center, who was raised by two women.

"Obviously I don't know any other way of growing up," Anderson-Dolan said . "Even though people may say, obviously, it's a little bit different, but for me it's completely normal. For me, it kind of gives you a little bit of perspective just how much the world is changing, and I think it's come a long way in the past couple of years. It's really cool to kind of be in this situation and have a voice in the community that way."

Kings buy out D Greene's final year

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) The Los Angeles Kings bought out the final year of defenseman Matt Greene's contract Friday, cutting ties with another portion of their Stanley Cup championship core.

Greene has been with the Kings since 2008, and he provided steady stay-at-home defense during their title runs in 2012 and 2014, playing in 20 playoff games in each postseason. He became a fan favorite in Los Angeles for his physical play and willingness to absorb punishment in the Kings' grinding defensive game plan.
