Los Angeles Kings acquire D Robyn Regehr from Buffalo Sabres for 2nd-round draft picks

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Los Angeles Kings have acquired defenceman Robyn Regehr from the Buffalo Sabres in a trade for two second-round draft picks.

The defending Stanley Cup champions announced the deal on their Twitter account Monday, saying the trade is contingent on Regehr passing a medical exam.

In exchange, the Sabres acquired the Kings second-round picks in 2014 and 2015.

The 13-year NHL veteran will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and waived his no-trade clause to approve the deal.

He has two assists in 29 games this season, but Los Angeles covets Regehr's physical defensive play while defencemen Matt Greene and Willie Mitchell remain out with long-term injuries.

Regehr spent the past two seasons with Buffalo after 11 seasons with Calgary, where he played for Kings coach Darryl Sutter.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
