The Los Angeles Kings, a team with a lot of cap space who could make a big splash today, have made a move today, but it's not the big deal people thought they were going to make.,
Jeff Halpern, a 33-year-old forward, is now a member of the Kings after being traded by the Lightning, according to The Fourth Period. Teddy Purcell and a third-round pick are heading to Tampa Bay.
Halpern is a former captain who has a ton of leadership ability. He's a very strong defensive forward and the deal is a good one for a Kings team expected to partake in the playoff festivities this season.
