KINGS ACQUIRE O'DONNELL FROM DUCKS

by Staff Writer / Los Angeles Kings
Sean O'Donnell returns for his second stint with the Kings.

LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have acquired defenseman Sean O’Donnell from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for a conditional draft selection in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced Tuesday.

O’Donnell, 36, is set to enter his 14th NHL season. He played for the Kings from 1994-2000, and in 932 career NHL regular season games with the Kings, Ducks, Phoenix Coyotes, Boston Bruins, New Jersey Devils and Minnesota Wild, the 6-3, 234-pound native of Ottawa has 177 points (27-150=177) and 1,558 penalty minutes. He has also played in 87 career NHL playoff games, and has 16 points (6-10=16) and 120 penalty minutes in post-season action.

O’Donnell has played the last two-and-one-half seasons with the Ducks, including the 2006-07 campaign when they won the Stanley Cup. He made his NHL debut with the Kings during the 1994-95 season and he played six seasons with the Kings. He played in 381 career games with the Kings, totaling 71 points (12-59=71) and 799 penalty minutes, and his 381 games played rank 10th on the Kings’ all-time list among defensemen and his 799 penalty minutes rank fifth among defensemen. He also played in eight playoff games with the Kings and had two points (both goals).

Tuesday’s trade also marks the second trade between the Kings and the Ducks in this history of the two franchises. In February, the Kings traded goaltender Jean-Sebastien Aubin to Anaheim for a seventh-round choice in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

The Kings play the Ducks tonight in a preseason game at STAPLES Center beginning at 7:30 p.m. The game can be heard on KTLK 1150 AM. The Kings and Ducks then play each other again tomorrow, Wednesday, at the Honda Center beginning at 7:05 p.m. That game will also be broadcast on 1150 AM.
