Scoring binge: LA Kings acquire Marian Gaborik from Columbus for Matt Frattin, 2 draft picks

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Los Angeles Kings have acquired veteran goal-scorer Marian Gaborik from the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The Blue Jackets get right wing Matt Frattin and a second-round pick in the 2014 draft, plus a conditional third-rounder if the Kings win their first-round playoff series or re-sign Gaborik.

The 32-year-old Gaborik will be a free agent after the season. He was making $7.5 million a year, with the Blue Jackets expected to pick up a portion of the $1.9 million in remaining salary. He has missed games with a sprained knee and a broken collarbone this season, limiting him to just 22 games, but is healthy for the stretch run.

The 26-year-old Frattin has two goals and four assists in 40 games.

Quote of the Day

(The tribute) was great, brought back a lot of memories. I felt I wanted to give them the thank you they deserved. I understand the booing and it was expected. They are great fans.
