Kings acquire veteran defenseman Robyn Regehr from the Buffalo Sabres

The Kings bolstered their defense corps Monday night by trading two second-round draft picks to the Buffalo Sabres for veteran Robyn Regehr. The 32-year-old Regehr waived his no-movement clause to complete the deal, which was first reported by the Canadian sports network TSN. The Kings have not announced the trade.

Here’s the rest of the story from TSN:

In 29 games this year he has registered two assists, 21 and a minus-four rating. Regehr is in the final year of a five-year, $20.1 million contract he signed with the Calgary Flames prior to the 2008-09 season. That deal carries an average annual value of $4.02 million.

A veteran of 13 NHL seasons, Regehr has played 932 career games between the Sabres and Flames, registering 30 goals and 140 assists with 879 penalty minutes. He was originally drafted by the Colorado Avalanche in the first round (19th overall) of the 1998 draft. He was acquired by the Flames in the trade that sent Theo Fluery to Colorado.
