It's highly unlikely the Kings will complete a trade before the NHL holiday roster freeze kicks in Dec. 19, as a deal is more likely to happen in the New Year, probably closer to the Mar. 5 trade deadline.
The Kings would like to add a veteran left wing, capable of playing top-six minutes, as well as a physical defenseman.
Kings head coach Darryl Sutter has continuously spread out his offense this season, choosing to utilize his top three lines as options. Veterans Justin Williams, Mike Richards, Jeff Carter and Dustin Brown have been moved throughout the lineup, along with rookie Tyler Toffoli.
As the season progresses, it's believed Lombardi would like to add another winger up front to solidify the team's offense.
Lombardi also wants to bolster his blueline by the trade deadline, a move he made last season when he acquired Robyn Regehr from the Buffalo Sabres.
The Kings currently have approximately $2.4 million in available salary cap space today, according to CapGeek.com, a figure that will increase as the season progresses.
