Kings could be looking at Bertuzzi and linked to a couple of Sabres
The Fourth Period: Los Angeles Kings GM Rob Blake is looking to add another top-six forward and a left-handed defenseman. TFPs David Pagnotta reported on the NHL Network earlier this week that Blake is hoping to make a trade or two this month.
Detroit Red Wings forward Tyler Bertuzzi could be one of Blake’s targets.
“He’s a player Detroit’s listening on,” he said of Bertuzzi. “L.A. has some very good young pieces that they’re willing to move to bring in young-calibre star talent in return.”
They have shown some interest in Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Seth Jones but they may have more interest in finding someone to play the left side.
