NHL trade rumors earlier this season had the LA Kings interested in Buffalo Sabres Jack Eichel. The Kings have the cap space and assets to offer the Sabres in a trade. The question is, do the Kings want to take on Eichel’s big contract and he does have an injury history.
TSN’s Darren Dreger is reporting the Kings are hoping to acquire two top six forwards through trade or free agency this off-season. Dreger went on to say, trade discussions around the league has increased ahead of the Seattle Kraken expansion draft.
If the Kings decide to add a top-six forward thru the trade route and do not go after Jack Eichel, they could target his teammate Sam Reinhart whom was rumored to be available at the NHL trade deadline.
