A few things about pending CHI-LA trade: it may not become official until later in the day; players involved are Scuderi/Ehrhoff...
...there may be some salary retention. Should stress it's not yet a done deal but absent any last-minute issues, it "should" get done.

LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have acquired defenseman Rob Scuderi from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for defenseman Christian Ehrhoff, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today. To make room on the 23-man roster, defenseman Kevin Gravel has been assigned to Ontario.

In 762 career regular-season games he has 104 points (8-96=104), a plus-16 rating and 196 penalty minutes. Drafted in the fifth-round (134th overall) by Pittsburgh during the 1998 NHL Entry Draft, the two-time Stanley Cup champion has appeared in 117 playoff games overall. He has posted 14 points (1-13=14), a plus-18 rating and 26 penalty minutes during that time. Scuderi will wear #7 with the Kings.
