Quiet deadline day for Kings

The Los Angeles Kings made a pair of moves by acquiring Robyn Regehr from the Bufffalo Sabres on Monday and trading Davis Drewiske to the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday before sitting tight as the 12:00 pm PT trading deadline passed on Wednesday without an additional transaction.

Though the day started slowly, a collection of moves were made shortly before the deadline, highlighted by Marian Gaborik’s trade from the New York Rangers to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Derick Brassard, Derek Dorsett, John Moore and a sixth-round draft pick. The Minnesota Wild, who will visit Staples Center on Thursday, also made a significant move by acquiring Jason Pominville from Buffalo in exchange for Matt Hackett, Johan Larsson, a first-round pick in 2013 and a second-round pick in 2014.

I’m in the process of transcribing quotes from Darryl Sutter, Dean Lombardi and Robyn Regehr. I’ll have those quotes up this afternoon along with KingsVision post-practice videos. Stay tuned.
