Montreal acquires Dwight King from Los Angeles

LA is rumored to be seeking Iginla, so this frees up cap space.

NHL: Los Angeles Kings at Tampa Bay Lightning Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

According to the official Montreal Twitter account, the Habs have acquired LA winger Dwight King.

Sources say it’s for a conditional 4th round pick, and we could expect that it’ll jump up a round if Montreal makes it a certain distance into the playoffs. TBD as of now.f

UPDATE: the conditional pick is if King signs an extension with Montreal.
