Oilers trade Jussi Jokinen to Kings for Mike Cammalleri

The Edmonton Oilers have acquired forward Mike Cammalleri from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for forward Jussi Jokinen, the team announced on Tuesday.

To obtain Cammalleri, the Oilers gave up forward Jussi Jokinen, whom they signed as a free agent just this summer. Cammalleri contributed three goals and four assists and was on their first power-play unit but played on the bottom six and was scratched twice. He's averaging less than 13 minutes of ice time per game, which puts him on pace for a new career low.

Jokinen similarly signed a one-year deal with a new club back in July when he joined the Oilers. Starting with the Kings in Los Angeles, the Toronto-native played for four seasons in California before playing the 2008-09 season in Calgary.

Cammalleri has played 15 years in the National Hockey League with a career 620 points in 855 games.

While the Kings have started the season off well, the Oilers have found much less success after a breakout 2016-17 season that saw the Oilers make it to the second-round of the postseason. The team made him a second-round pick in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.

Jokinen, 34, has 547 points (186 goals, 361 assists) in 905 games with the Oilers, Dallas Stars, Tampa Bay Lightning, Carolina Hurricanes, Pittsburgh Penguins and Florida Panthers.
