Penner to Kings tops NHL trade deadline day

Until the Los Angeles Kings made the biggest move of NHL trade deadline day by prying forward Dustin Penner away from the Edmonton Oilers, the further breaking up of the Florida Panthers dominated an otherwise dull day of dealing.

Penner was the main marquee player to change teams on Monday, in what was an out-of-character slow deadline day. The Oilers, who own the NHL's worst record, unloaded their star forward for an impressive bundle - receiving prospect defenseman Colten Teubert, a first-round pick this year, and another draft selection next year.

There were 16 deals Monday involving 35 players and 12 draft picks, nowhere near the record level of last year when 31 trades with 55 players included were completed.
