The Edmonton Oilers have acquired winger Mike Cammalleri from the Los Angeles Kings in a deal that will see Jussi Jokinen heading back in the other direction, according to Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet. Cammalleri signed with the Kings as a free agent during the summer, but his second stint in L.A. lasted just 15 games. Both Jokinen and Cammalleri signed one-year deals with their respective teams this offseason, and in a rare move, both the Oilers and Kings have deemed it worthwhile to swap the duo in hopes that a change of scenery helps them out.
Drafted in the sixth-round (192nd overall) by the Stars during the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, he has appeared in 54 playoff games, posting 32 points (17-15=32), a plus-10 rating and 20 penalty minutes.
The 34-year-old Jokinen has one assist in 14 games with Edmonton this season. His most productive season came in 2008-2009 when he scored 39 goals and 82 points with the Calgary Flames.

He was returning to his roots by joining the Kings, after spending the first five seasons of his career in Los Angeles.
