After battling for the Stanley Cup vs. one another in June, Devils, Kings make a minor deal

NEWARK, N.J. - The New Jersey Devils acquired centre Andrei Loktionov from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for a draft pick on Wednesday.

In a rare deal between two teams that competed against each other in the Stanley Cup finals last year, New Jersey shipped a fifth-round selection in the 2013 draft for Loktionov, who will be assigned to the team's American Hockey League affiliate in Albany, N.Y.

Loktionov, 22, is in his fourth professional season. He has seven goals and 14 points in 59 NHL games.

The Devils, a No. 6 seed, lost in six games to the Kings, a No. 8 seed, last June, as Los Angeles won its first Stanley Cup.

It's a little different but it feels amazing. A new chapter in my life and I'm excited. It's been amazing. Better than I expected. The weather is great, the place is just amazing. I can't say enough good things about it. I'm glad to get the season going.
