Former Los Angeles Kings left wing Alexander Frolov has put his home in Manhattan Beach on the market for $2.995 million.

The Mediterranean-style residence, on a corner lot near Mira Costa High School, was built for former Los Angeles Lakers forward Slava Medvedenko, who sold the property in 2005 for $1.55 million. Frolov bought the house in 2006, one year after signing a five-year, $14.5-million extension with the Kings, for $2.299 million, property records show.

Marked by large pillars, the 4,472-square-foot home has a step-down entry, tile and hardwood flooring and vaulted ceilings -- a feature that likely appealed to both the 6-foot-10 basketball forward and the 6-foot-2 hockey player.

Among living spaces is a double-height living room with a wet bar, an open-area kitchen/family room, a dining room, five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The master suite features a fireplace, a sitting area and a large soaking tub.


A pool and spa with a waterfall feature highlight the backyard space, which also has an outdoor lounge area and a built-in barbecue.

Vadim Bogdanov of Utmost Realty is the listing agent.

Frolov, 32, spent seven seasons with the Kings from 2002 to 2010 and a season with the New York Rangers before signing a three-year deal with Russian team Avangard Omsk of the KHL in 2011. He announced his retirement from professional hockey last year.
