Oilers acquire Cammalleri from Kings for Jokinen

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

In 855 career National Hockey League games with Los Angeles, Calgary, Montreal and New Jersey, Cammalleri has put up 290 goals and 620 points.

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.

Jokinen signed a one-year deal worth $1.1 million with the Oilers in July. His most productive season came in 2008-2009 when he scored 39 goals and 82 points with the Calgary Flames. This season, the Finnish forward had record just a single point with the Oilers in 14 games. The veteran has three goals and four assists in in 2017-18. 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. Much in the same ilk as Cammalleri, he is on pace for a new career low in average ice time, having played just above 12 minutes per night in the 14 games he has suited up for this season.
