LA Kings Acquire Jussi Jokinen; Trade Mike Cammalleri to Edmonton Oilers

Los Angeles Kings forward Michael Cammalleri

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.

The Oilers have scored 38 goals this season - which is last in the National Hockey League in goals scored as does the team's goals per game. The veteran has three goals and four assists in in 2017-18.

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