Edmonton Oilers acquire sniper Mike Cammalleri from Kings

The Edmonton Oilers have acquired Mike Cammalleri from the Los Angeles Kings for Jussi Jokinen, according to Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos.

Cammalleri has three goals and four assists in 15 games with the Kings this season.

It will be Cammalleri's third stint with an Alberta team. He has totaled a mere point in 14 games this season, by way of an assist, and has struggled to contribute while on the Oilers' fourth line.

Andersson, however, was quick to dismiss talk of a sensational return for the 36-year-old. He posted the following picture on Twitter, accompanied by the caption: "We are Zweden".


Jokinen similarly signed a one-year deal with a new club back in July when he joined the Oilers. Instead, both the Oilers and Kings are looking to bolster their depth by swapping two veterans who have underperformed in the early goings of the season. The Oilers have just 14, good for second-worst in the conference.

The Edmonton Oilers were in the market to find another scoring option, and it appears that they have found a solution. He has gone on to a 15-year National Hockey League career, which has included four years with the Calgary Flames, three with the Montreal Canadiens, and three with the New Jersey Devils. His most productive season came in 2008-2009 when he scored 39 goals and 82 points with the Calgary Flames.

The former sixth-round pick has 547 career points in 905 games. Set to join the Kings who are looking like legitimate Stanley Cup contenders in the early-goings of the season, Jokinen could find himself in the postseason for the first time since 2015-16 after missing the postseason with the Panthers a year ago.
