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.

added 5:01pm, Deal official. LAK release is below...

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.

Scuderi, 37, has played in 17 games with the Blackhawks this year, going scoreless.

The 6-1, 212-pound native of Syosset, New York has played for the Blackhawks, Pittsburgh Penguins and the Kings during his 12-year NHL career, including winning two Stanley Cups (2012 – Los Angeles, 2009 – Pittsburgh). 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.

Ehrhoff, 23, appeared in 40 games this season with the Kings, posting 10 points (2-8=10) and 32 penalty minutes. He was signed by the Kings as an unrestricted free agent, Sept. 4, 2015.
