The LA Kings have acquired forward Jussi Jokinen from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for forward Michael Cammalleri, Kings Vice President and General Manager Rob Blake announced today. With the trade, the Oilers gain the offensive help that they looked for when they initially signed Jokinen during free agency, but at a cheap price-tag.

Cammalleri has suited up for the Kings in 15 games this season, posting seven points along the way. Jokinen is off to a awful start in 2017-18, as he has just one assist and no goals in 14 contests.

Cammalleri is set to earn a base-salary of $1 million this season.


The Edmonton Oilers were in the market to find another scoring option, and it appears that they have found a solution.

His best season came in 2008-09 with the Calgary Flames where he scored a career high 39 goals and 43 assists. Set to join his seventh team, Jokinen is still looking for his first Stanley Cup victory of his career.

In 905 regular season games, he has posted 547 points (186-361=547), a plus-2 rating and 367 penalty minutes. Set to join the Kings who are looking like legitimate Stanley Cup contenders in the early-goings of the season, Jokinen could find himself in the postseason for the first time since 2015-16 after missing the postseason with the Panthers past year.
