The deal is done. The Kings swapped defensemen with the Chicago Blackhawks, acquiring Rob Scuderi and parting with Christian Ehrhoff. Scuderi helped the Kings win the Stanley Cup championship in 2012. He has been playing with Rockford of the AHL. Ehrhoff has been with Ontario of the AHL. Scuderi is 37. Ehrhoff is 33. Scuderi was scoreless in 17 games with the Blackhawks. Ehrhoff had two goals and 10 points in 40 games for the Kings. Scuderi can be an unrestricted free agent after next season. Ehrhoff can be a UFA after this one.
The Kings sent defenseman Kevin Gravel to Ontario to make room for Scuderi on their roster.
