Edmonton Oilers acquire sniper Mike Cammalleri from Kings

The Kings traded Cammalleri to the Edmonton Oilers for another veteran, Jussi Jokinen, before their Tuesday game against the Vancouver Canucks at Staples Center.

To obtain Cammalleri, the Oilers gave up forward Jussi Jokinen, whom they signed as a free agent just this summer. He averaged a career-low 12 minutes, 38 seconds in 15 games. He has a one-year contract worth $1.1 million. Jokinen is off to a bad start in 2017-18, as he has just one assist and no goals in 14 contests. Starting with the Kings in Los Angeles, the Toronto-native played for four seasons in California before playing the 2008-09 season in Calgary.

Cammalleri, 35, has 620 points (290 goals, 330 assists) in 855 games with the Kings, Calgary Flames, Montreal Canadiens and New Jersey Devils.

Jokinen has 186 goals in 905 games and scored a career-high 30 goals for Carolina in 2009-10. The 34-year-old is signed to the end of the year with a $1.1 million cap hit and has a limited no-trade clause where he can pick three teams he can refuse to go to.

The point total has been there in the past, it was only two seasons ago that he scored 18 goals and 60 points with the Florida Panthers.

That homecoming lasted six weeks into the season.
