  • Los Angeles Kings Acquire Jeff Carter

    Jackets deal Carter to Kings for Johnson, pick - NHL - Yahoo! Sports

    The Los Angeles Kings needed a goal-scorer. The Columbus Blue Jackets simply needed a redo.

    Both teams met their needs Thursday night by pulling off a major trade that sent forward Jeff Carter from Columbus to the Los Angeles Kings for defenseman Jack Johnson and a first-round draft pick in either 2012 or 2013.

    Carter signed an 11-year, $58 million deal with the Philadelphia Flyers in November 2010, but now will be joining his third team since agreeing to it.

    Acquired in a blockbuster deal with Philadelphia last summer, Carter was expected to center the Blue Jackets’ top line with captain Rick Nash, who is also rumored to be on the trading block leading up to Monday’s NHL dealing deadline. But Carter missed 20 games due to a broken foot and a separated shoulder. He had three goals in the Blue Jackets’ previous game and has 15 goals and 10 assists in 39 games this season.

    Carter will be reunited with forward Mike Richards, who was traded by the Flyers to the Kings last June on the same day Carter was shipped to Columbus in a major Philadelphia housecleaning.

    Carter is finally healthy and should help the Kings. In the meantime, Columbus still stinks.

        Ducks arent doing so well this season. I would like to see the other team in L.A. do good.
