NHL Rumors: Kings Interested In Hurricanes Defenseman

According to The Fourth Period, the Kings are linked to Hurricanes defenseman Brady Skjei.

The Hurricanes have several players they would like to re-sign this summer. However, due to their limited cap space, it will be challenging for them to bring them back without moving a player. Thus, Skjei and his $5.25 million cap hit have entered the rumor mill.

The Kings are a team on the rise and are looking to make upgrades on their roster because of it. Skjei would be a solid addition to their top four if acquired, so let's see if they can land him from Carolina.
