Kings trade Quick to Blue Jackets
The Los Angeles Kings have traded goaltender Jonathan Quick to the Columbus Blue Jackets.
According to widespread reports, the Kings moved to push through the deal late on Tuesday.
The package is said to include defenseman Vladislav Gavrikov and goaltender Joonas Korpisalo moving the opposite way.
It comes on the back of three-time Stanley Cup winner Patrick Kane moving from the Chicago Blackhawks to the New York Rangers in another high-profile trade.
Quick had played close to 750 games for the Kings, whom he started his career with in the 2007-08 season, and has been part of two Stanley Cup title-winning squads.
