The Kings on Tuesday swapped unproductive forward Simon Gagne for a conditional pick in the upcoming draft from the Philadelphia Flyers. Gagne played only 11 of the Kings’ 17 games this season, and did not have a goal. He had five assists and two penalty minutes and was the odd-man out of the lineup recently. Gagne has played 772 games during his career with the Kings, Flyers and the Tampa Bay Lightning.
If the Flyers make the playoffs, the Kings with get a third-round pick. If the Flyers don’t qualify for the postseason, the Kings will receive a fourth-round selection.
