Wow, per the Maple Leafs:
Update: Here's the Kings' press release:
KINGS ACQUIRE MATT FRATTIN, BEN SCRIVENS AND A SECOND ROUND DRAFT SELECTION FROM TORONTO FOR JONATHAN BERNIER
LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Kings have acquired forward Matt Frattin, goaltender Ben Scrivens and a second round draft selection from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for goaltender Jonathan Bernier, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced this morning.
Frattin this past season played in 25 regular season games with the Maple Leafs. He recorded 13 points – including seven goals (three of which were game-winning goals) – and he enjoyed a plus-six rating. During the playoffs, the first postseason action of his career, he played in six games and recorded two assists. He also this past season played in 21 games for the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League during the NHL lockout.
Frattin, a 6-0, 200-pounder from Edmonton, Alberta – during the 2011-12 season played in 56 games for the Maple Leafs and recorded 15 points (8-7=15). He also played in 23 games for the Marlies and recorded 18 points in 23 games.
In 2010-11, Frattin played the bulk of the season with the Marlies. He made his NHL debut (April 9, 2011), appearing in one game with the Maple Leafs that season. In 82 career regular season NHL games, all with the Maple Leafs, Frattin has 28 points (15-13=28), a plus-one rating and 29 penalty minutes.
In 2007 Toronto selected Frattin, who is 25 years old, in the fourth round (99th overall) of the annual Entry Draft. He played hockey at the University of North Dakota from
2008-11, and in his junior season he scored 36 goals as he was a Hobey Baker finalist.
Scrivens this past season played in 20 games with the Maple Leafs. He posted a 7-9-0 record, two shutouts, a 2.69 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage. He did not appear in the playoffs for the Maple Leafs. He also played in 22 games for the Marlies this past season.
The 6-2, 192-pounder from Spruce Grove, Alberta played in 12 games for the Maple Leafs in 2011-12 (his rookie year), posting a 4-5-2 record. He also that season played in 39 games for the Marlies as he went 22-15-1. In 32 career regular season NHL games, all with the Maple Leafs, Scrivens is 11-14-2 with two shutouts, a .910 save percentage and a 2.86 goals-against-average. In 2010-11 Scrivens made his professional debut, splitting his time between Reading (ECHL) and the Marlies.
In 2010 Toronto signed Scrivens, who is 26 years old, after the netminder went undrafted in the annual Entry Draft. He played hockey at Cornell University from 2006-10, and in his last two seasons he won 21 and 22 games, respectively. After his senior season he was a Hobey Baker finalist.
The second round draft selection acquired by the Kings as part of today’s trade will be in 2014 or 2015 (Toronto’s option).
Bernier joined the Kings when the club selected the netminder in the first round (11th overall) of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. He played in 62 career regular season games with the Kings (plus one postseason contest) and had a 29-20-6 record, a .912 save percentage, a 2.36 goals-against-average and six shutouts.
