Kings acquire Carcillo from Blackhawks

The SportsXchange

The Chicago Blackhawks traded rugged forward Daniel Carcillo to the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday for a sixth-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft.

According to terms of the deal, if Carcillo plays in 40 or more games for the Kings next season, the Blackhawks would receive a fifth-round draft pick in 2015.

Carcillo, 28, had two goals and an assist in 23 regular-season games and one assist in the postseason for the Stanley Cup-winning Blackhawks.

Injuries have slowed Carcillo the past two seasons, including knee surgery in January 2012 that limited him to 28 games during the 2011-12 season.

Carcillo's best season came in 2007-08 with the Phoenix Coyotes when he had 13 goals and 11 assists and led the NHL in penalty minutes with 324.

In 333 NHL games with the Philadelphia Flyers, Coyotes and Blackhawks, Carcillo has 40 goals, 87 points and 1,079 penalty minutes.

Carcillo will rejoin former Flyers teammates Mike Richards and Jeff Carter with the Kings.
