Kings Looking for Dynamic Left-Shot Defenseman Before Trade Deadline

The Los Angeles Kings and Rob Blake are looking to add a dynamic left-shot defenseman via trade.

Darren Dreger reports that Los Angeles Kings GM Rob Blake is on the hunt for a “dynamic defenseman” as he scours the trade market in an attempt to partially reshape his roster and keep the Kings momentum going. If Dreger’s report is accurate, the trade could be a big one.

According to the NHL insider, the Kings are searching for someone 25 and under, but that player has to be a dynamic, left-shot defenceman. It sounds like the Kings are willing to pay to acquire that type of player and Dreger notes that the team has an abundance of forwards, particularly at centre ice.

When trying to offer a comparison as to what that trade might look like, the TSN reporter said, “I’m reminded of the big trade that involved the Columbus Blue Jackets a few years back, and the Nashville Predators. Ryan Johansen for Seth Jones”. He added, “If something like that could be worked out by Rob Blake, then he’d do that in a heartbeat.”

An Interesting Position For the Kings

A team that many believed would be near the bottom of the standings in the NHL this season, the Kings are right in the thick of things in the Honda West Division. They sit in third, one spot higher than Arizona, and both teams with 21 points.

Going into the season, it was believed the Kings might be sellers. Now, as they continue to string together wins and compete the for the postseason, Blake wants to give his team a shot, thus the speculation he’s looking to add dynamic players who can help now.

The team has won six straight games and are one of the hottest teams in the NHL. They also have a ton of cap space so taking on a player with a hefty contract is not going to be an issue for them.
