LA Kings trade O’Neill, place King on IR to reach 23-player limit

The Kings on Tuesday traded forward Brian O’Neill to the New Jersey Devils for a seventh-round pick in the 2017 draft. They also lost goaltending prospect J.F. Berube to the New York Islanders, who claimed him off waivers. Forward Dwight King was played on injured reserve because of an upper-body injury.

In addition, the Kings reached the NHL’s 23-player roster limit by assigning defensemen Vincent LoVerde and Jamie McBain to their new AHL team in Ontario. LoVerde and McBain also were placed on waivers Monday, but they cleared Tuesday at 9 a.m., and will join the Reign.
