The Los Angeles Kings have acquired the rights to Minnesota Wild forward Kevin Fiala, sources confirm to The Athletic. The Wild will receive a 2022 first-round pick and defenseman Brock Faber in return for the restricted free agent.
Fiala is coming off a career-best season which saw him score 33 goals and 85 points in 82 games. In six playoff games against the St. Louis Blues, Fiala chipped in three assists. The 25-year-old played last season on a one-year, $5.1 million contract that was agreed upon following an arbitration hearing last summer.
This is a developing story. More to come.
