Kings exploring trade options
TheFourthPeriod.com

With roughly $600,000 in available salary cap space, the Los Angeles Kings are looking to trade one of their depth players in order to create some more room.

According to two separate sources close to the organization, Kings GM Dean Lombardi is exploring multiple possibilities, and could move either a forward or a defenseman.

The Kings would like to add a second-line scoring left winger, but without significant cap space, that help must come from within the organization.

As a result, it's believed the Kings want to call up one of Tanner Pearson or Tyler Toffoli, but Lombardi wants to move a current roster player before doing so.

Lombardi was shopping forward Kyle Clifford and defenseman Alec Martinez during the summer, but wasn't able to find a suitable trading partner.

One of Clifford, Martinez, defenseman Keaton Ellerby, and center Trevor Lewis could be dealt in the near future, one source told TFP, and the asking price appears to be at least one draft pick -- the degree of the pick varies from player to player.

The Kings have been rotating their lines in the first part of the season, thus far, shuffling captain Dustin Brown, center Jarret Stoll and wingers Dwight King and Jordan Nolan in an attempt to spark some secondary scoring.

The Kings are currently 19th in the NHL going into Monday in goals-for per game, averaging just 2.58 per game.

Last season, the Kings ranked 10th in the NHL in goals-for (2.73 per game).
