However, it appears the need for a veteran defenseman may be just as important as acquiring a goal-scorer, with the trade deadline one week away.
Up front, the Kings have expressed interest in Buffalo Sabres left wing Matt Moulson, New York Islanders scorer Thomas Vanek, Calgary Flames sniper Mike Cammalleri and Dallas Stars veteran Ray Whitney.
On defense, blueliner Andrew MacDonald of the Islanders, Buffalo Sabres rearguard Henrik Tallinder and New York Rangers star Dan Girardi are on Lombardi's radar.
According to multiple league sources, the Kings have discussed a deal with the Islanders involving Vanek and MacDonald prior to the Olympic break, and talks are expected carry out this week.
The Islanders are looking for a first-round pick, or a top prospect, as part of a package for Vanek, and a defenseman and a high draft pick for MacDonald.
It's believed the Islanders expressed interest in Kings blueliner Alec Martinez earlier in the season.
