Welcome to LA - Jeff Halpern

In a move to add depth and experience to the LA Kings, GM Dean Lombardi swung a deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning today. It was a deal of threes. Three assets traded...He sent a 3rd round pick and Teddy Purcell (and his 3 goals) to Tampa Bay for Jeff Halpern.

In Halpern the Kings get another former college hockey player - he went to Princeton - and a veteran leader. The 6'0 center has previously served as team captain three times in his career - with the Washington Capitals, for the U.S. national team at the 2008 World Championships and his senior year at Princeton.

In 24 career playoff games he has 6 goals and 6 assists.

He's expected to play on the Kings 4th line.

He'll wear #22 in Los Angeles.

Are there more moves to come? We have about an hour to go...
