Picture of Connor Hellebuyck. Will he be traded to the LA Kings?
The latest NHL trade rumors for the LA kings feature the team interested in trading for Winnipeg Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck.

The LA Kings made a big trade this summer, acquiring forward Pierre-Luc Dubois from the Winnipeg Jets.

There are NHL trade rumors suggesting that the Kings might try to acquire Dubois’s former teammate Connor Hellebuyck.

Will the LA Kings trade for Winnipeg Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck?

Ryan Dixon of Sportsnet reports that the LA Kings may trade for a goalie during the season, as they are not convinced by the current goalie tandem of Pheonix Copely and Cam Talbot.

There are NHL trade rumors suggesting that Kings’ General Manager Rob Blake is interested in acquiring Connor Hellebuyck. However, to make this trade happen, the Kings would need the Jets to eat a portion of Hellebuyck’s salary or involve a third team to balance the salary requirements.

What are NHL fans saying about a Connor Hellebuyck trade to the LA Kings?

Can’t see the Kings trading for Hellebuyck. Their goaltending is questionable, but I think they are stuck with the current duo.

Viktor Arvidsson will likely have to be traded if they want Helle.

Not sure this is the year to make a big goalie trade. I can’t see the Kings getting past Vegas, Edmonton, or Colorado this year.

  1. I wish everyone would let Copley have the net as the # 1. He did outstanding last year and I think he should have been the starter in playoffs. He certainly earned it by saving the Kings season. I don’t think this year is when we would be making another huge trade for a goalie.

  2. Hellyubuck isnt the answer for LA. the top four teams in the west are the knights, oilers, kings and stars as is. Colorado with no Landeskog isn’t going to beat these teams. Rob Blake probably makes a deal for a goalie at the deadline. Copley was 24-6 last year so let’s not write him off completely.

  3. Trade him for Arte Moreno worst owner in baseball. It’s ok as Arte can pretend that he loves Hockey, buy the Winnipeg Jets, and change the team name to Los Angeles Jets.
