Dean Lombardi is scheduled to speak on a conference call shortly, so I’ll have all the details of that. Here is some initial reaction…
Jeff Carter, to LAKings.com: “I am obviously excited. I am familiar with the team and a lot of guys on the team. I looked at the Kings at the start of the year as being a club in a good position to win. I look forward to coming to L.A. and being a part of it all.”
Dean Lombardi, via Kings press release: “Jeff is a proven goal scorer in our league. He brings goal-scoring abilities, speed and at his age he is entering the prime of his career. We also like his versatility as he can play both center and wing. We also want to wish Jack Johnson the best going forward.”
What do you think of the trade?
