LA Kings bring back Rob Scuderi in trade with Chicago

February 26, 2016

The Los Angeles Kings acquired a familiar face today to help them with their upcoming playoff journey, trading for Chicago Blackhawks' veteran defenseman and former King Rob Scuderi in exchange for defenseman Christian Ehrhoff, General Manager Dean Lombardi announced.

To make room on the roster, defenseman Kevin Gravel has been assigned to Ontario.

Scuderi, 37, has significant experience, but might not have much left in the tank.  He played in 17 games with the Blackhawks this year, going scoreless.

The 6-1, 212-pound Scuderi has played for the Blackhawks, Pittsburgh Penguins, and the Kings during his 12-year NHL career, including winning two Stanley Cups (2012 – Los Angeles, 2009 – Pittsburgh).

In 762 career regular-season games he has 104 points (8-96=104), a plus-16 rating and 196 penalty minutes. Drafted in the fifth-round (134th overall) by Pittsburgh during the 1998 NHL Entry Draft, the two-time Stanley Cup champion has appeared in 117 playoff games overall. He has posted 14 points (1-13=14), a plus-18 rating and 26 penalty minutes during that time.

Ehrhoff, 23, appeared in 40 games this season with the Kings, posting 10 points (2-8=10) and 32 penalty minutes. He was signed by the Kings as an unrestricted free agent, Sept. 4, 2015.

The Kings play host to the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night at STAPLES Center on FOX Sports West and TalkRadio 790 KABC at 8:00 p.m.
