Fiala, 25, is coming off a career-best season which saw him score 33 goals and 85 points in 82 games with the Wild.

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.

The Swiss-born forward is on his third team since being drafted 11th by the Nashville Predators in the 2014 NHL Draft. In 419 career NHL games, Fiala has 124 goals and 282 points.

This is a developing story. More to come.
