Se­na­tors swap Pha­neuf to Kings

China Daily - - HOLIDAY | SPORTS -

The Los An­ge­les Kings ac­quired vet­eran de­fense­man Dion Pha­neuf from the Ot­tawa Se­na­tors on Tues­day night.

Pha­neuf and for­ward Nate Thomp­son were dealt to Los An­ge­les in ex­change for for­wards Mar­ian Ga­borik and Nick Shore.

The teams an­nounced the trade af­ter the Se­na­tors’ 6-3 loss to the Pitts­burgh Pen­guins. The deal gives the Kings more depth on the blue­line as they as­sume the fi­nal three-plus years of Pha­neuf’s con­tract, though the Se­na­tors are re­tain­ing 25 per­cent of his salary and salary-cap hit.

The 32-year-old Pha­neuf, who was drafted ninth over­all by the Cal­gary Flames in 2003 and is a for­mer cap­tain of the Toronto Maple Leafs, has 16 points in 52 games this sea­son and 478 in 954 games dur­ing his 13-year NHL ca­reer.
