Kings looking to trade Viktor Arvidsson

Elliotte Friedman was on his 32 Thoughts Podcast and reports that the LA Kings have let teams know that Viktor Arvidsson is available for trade this offseason.

Friedman went on to say in his podcast hit that trading away Arvidsson will free up the Kings salary cap space to re-sign defenseman Vladislav Gavrikov and target a goalie via trade.

Arvidsson, 30,  was drafted 112th overall by the Nashville Predators in the 4th round of the 2014 NHL entry draft. Currently over a career that spans 9 seasons, he has a total 347 points in 528 games played, and 34 playoffs points in 67 games played.

What are Kings fans saying about a potential Viktor Arvidsson trade?

Penguins need to take a shot at Arvidsson. take a shot at him? He’s a little on the smaller side but he could be a cheap replacement for Zucker.

Bank that space for next summer and they may be the favorites to land Auston Matthews. Kopitar’s contract coming off the books will help too.

Arvidsson is the wrong player to trade. He is the only forward to score goals for us.
