King trade Michael Cammalleri to Edmonton for Jussi Jokinen

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

The Edmonton Oilers have traded forward Jussi Jokinen to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for forward Michael Cammalleri, per Nick Kypreos.

The signing of Michael Cammalleri was a minor, if not underwhelming, move in the summer by the Kings, but it represented a homecoming for the veteran forward because he had spent the first five seasons of his career here.

The 35-year-old Richmond Hill native signed a one-year deal with the Kings in the off-season, the club that drafted him in the second round (49th overall) in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. He has scored three goals (two of which have come on the power play) and added four assists. He has gone on to a 15-year National Hockey League career, which has included four years with the Calgary Flames, three with the Montreal Canadiens, and three with the New Jersey Devils. The deal saw him return to Calgary where he played for another two seasons before joining the New Jersey Devils for three years before finally rejoining the Kings this offseason.

Jokinen, 34, has 547 points (186 goals, 361 assists) in 905 games with the Oilers, Dallas Stars, Tampa Bay Lightning, Carolina Hurricanes, Pittsburgh Penguins and Florida Panthers. He has one point in 14 games with Edmonton this season.
