The Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup last season with veteran defensemen Willie Mitchell and Matt Greene patrolling their blue line and playing important minutes. Both Mitchell and Greene are injured and may not play again this season, so Kings general manager Dean Lombardi went about trying to replace some of that experienced grit by acquiring Robyn Regehr from the Buffalo Sabres on Monday night.

The Kings gave Buffalo two second-round draft picks -- one in the 2014 NHL Draft and the other in the 2015 NHL Draft -- in exchange for Regehr, 6-foot-3, 225-pound blueliner who played in the 2004 Stanley Cup Final with the Calgary Flames.

The deal is contingent on Regehr passing a physical.
