NHL Trade Rumor: Kings And Devils Discussing Deal?
According to The Fourth Period The Los Angeles Kings and New Jersey Devils are believed to have engaged in recent trade discussions, prompting each team to dispatch its scouting staff to watch the other club.
It has been widely reported that the Devils have an interest in Kings goalie Jonathan Bernier, however sources close to the Kings are not interested in moving him, at this point, barring a substantial offer.
Devils GM Lou Lamoriello is in the market for some scoring help up front, primarily at the center position as Travis Zajac is still hurt, though such assistance isn’t expected to come from the Kings, unless New Jersey is interested in Dustin Penner, who was recently placed on the IR.
Nothing appears imminent but both teams are actively looking for help.
