Kings trade Scrivens to Oilers
The Los Angeles Kings have traded goaltender Ben Scrivens to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for a 2014 third-round draft pick.
Scrivens, 27, posted a 7-5-4 record in 19 games with the Kings this season, as well as a 1.97 goals-against-average, a .931 save percentage and three shutouts.
The native of Spruce Grove, Alberta, has played in 51 career NHL regular-season games with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Kings, and has compiled a career-record of 18-19-6, to date, with a 2.54 GAA, a .917 save percentage and five shutouts.
Scrivens is in the final year of his current contract and is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent July 1.
The Kings acquired Scrivens, along with right wing Matt Frattin and a second-round draft pick, on June 23, 2013, in exchange for goalie Jonathan Bernier.
