Kings acquire 5th round selection in 2013 NHL Draft from New Jersey for Andrei Loktionov http://ow.ly/hujg3

LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have acquired a fifth-round selection in the 2013 NHL Draft from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for forward Andrei Loktionov, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today.

Loktionov, 22, has played in 59 career NHL games (all with the Kings), recording 14 points (7-7=14) and four penalty minutes. The 5-10, 179-pound native of Voskresensk, Russia was drafted by the Kings in the fifth round (123rd overall) in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

This season, Loktionov has appeared in 37 games for the Manchester Monarchs (AHL), recording 22 points (7-15=22) and six penalty minutes.

The Kings continue their road trip in Nashville tomorrow beginning at 5 p.m. (PT). The game will be broadcast on FOX Sports West – including a pre-game show -- and KTLK AM 1150.


He wanted out, he got his wish. I think its a great pickup for the Devils

Cue the Henrique package for Luongo in the off season, if Loktionov works with Kovalchuk. He's Russian so it'll work.

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.

And DownUndaCanuck was willing to give Tanev for him, then all he returned was a 5th. Lol

Good move for NJD.

New Jersey gets much needed offensive boost with this trade. LA lost two good prospects in two months first Tomas Hickey now Loktionov.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

I didn't see New Jersey as a team that'd go after him, wondering more about Calgary, Phoenix or Chicago (maybe even Tampa). But it makes sense for them as well, especially at the cost of only a 5th.

For those wondering why Gillis didn't do this, feel free to share where you would have put him in the lineup. Remember, the reason he requested a trade was because the Kings couldn't find icetime for him as they already have better centers and Loktionov didn't play well when they tried to switch him to wing. I look forward to your responses.

At the center position on the second line until Kesler returns. After that? Who knows.

Actually, this seems like a favor Lombardi did for both Loktionov and for Uncle Lou.

I doubt the Canucks could have acquired Loktionov for anything like a fifth round pick.

I kinda doubt Gillis even knew about this.

So you're saying he's a guaranteed improvement over Schroeder? The player we've drafted and developed and currently have in our lineup already? The player who had 19 points in 30 games with the Wolves where Loktionov had only 3 points more in 7 more games with the Monarchs?

Yep, you read me correctly. I'm saying that Loktionov is a significant upgrade over Schroeder.

A 3rd or a 4th pick would have been great.

Good luck, Locomotive, Loktionov.

3 way trade ? :)

Not being serious but hypothetically...

To Vancouver: Taylor Hall, Adam Henrique

To New Jersey: Cory Schneider, Mason Raymond

To Edmonton: Adam Larsson, Van 2013 1st

Value might be a tad off

Don't think he has much interest in this tiny booger.

Hickey is a bust.

http://www.hockeydb.....php?pid=116647

Thanks for their stats pages, but I'm already aware of them. You'll have to do a little more explaining to why you think Loktionov would be a clear upgrade over Schroeder though.

Schroeder's career NHL PPG: 0.286
Loktionov's career NHL PPG: 0.237

Small sample size for Schroeder sure, but to think someone from your own organization that you've drafted and developed doesn't deserve the chance to fill in for injuries over an underachieving player from another team who asked to be traded is poor asset management.
