The LA Kings have acquired forward Tim Schaller, the rights to forward Tyler Madden, a second-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft and a conditional fourth round selection in 2022 from the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for forward Tyler Toffoli, according to Vice President and General Manager Rob Blake.

Schaller, a 29-year-old from Merrimack, N.H., has appeared in 51 games this season with Vancouver, registering six points (5-1=6). Originally signed by the Buffalo Sabres as an undrafted free agent, the 6-2, 204-pound forward is currently in his seventh professional season since leaving Providence College in 2013.

Forward Tyler Madden was a third-round pick by Vancouver in the 2018 NHL Draft and is in his second season at Northeastern University. The Deerfield, Fla. native currently has 65 points (31-34=65) in 63 appearances while helping the Huskies to a Hockey East Championship last season and back-to-back Beanpot titles (2019, 2020).
