NHL Rumors: Kings Interested In Penguins Defenseman

According to The Fourth Period, the Kings are linked to Penguins defenseman Marcus Pettersson.

Pettersson's name has been in the rumor mill since the regular season, and it's easy to understand why. The Penguins have multiple key players that they want to re-sign, and Pettersson's $4,025,175 cap hit is just too much for his role with the team. Yet, there could be a fit there in LA, as he would likely be in their top four if acquired.

It will be intriguing to see if LA's interest in Pettersson leads to a trade between both clubs.
