The Los Angeles Kings today acquired forward Vincent Lecavalier and defenseman Luke Schenn from the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for forward Jordan Weal and a third-round selection in the 2016 NHL Draft. Lecavalier, 35, has been a healthy scratch for much of the season and only played in seven games with the Flyers this year. He has one point and two penalty minutes.
The Flyers are reportedly retaining 50% of Lecavalier’s and Schenn’s contracts. The deal was also contingent on Lecavalier retiring at seasons end, Pierre LeBrun reports.
