LA Kings get Kevin Fiala in trade with Minnesota Wild

LOS ANGELES (AP) The Los Angeles Kings acquired high-scoring forward Kevin Fiala from the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday in exchange for their first-round pick in the upcoming draft and prospect Brock Faber.

Fiala is a restricted free agent, but the Kings are expected to sign the Swiss star to a long-term contract extension.

Fiala was one of the most attractive potential acquisitions in the NHL this summer after putting up career highs of 33 goals and 52 assists for the Wild last season. The left wing seems to be a perfect fit on the top line for the Kings, who ended their three-year playoff drought last spring despite scoring fewer goals than every postseason team except Dallas.
