The Kings have acquired Andrej Sekera from the Hurricanes for a 2015 1st round pick and prospect Roland McKeown
Sekera is a pending unrestricted free agent, but definitely bolsters the Kings blue line in the short term. Defence was not a huge need for the Kings until Slava Voynov ran into trouble with the law. Sekera is a strong puck-moving defenseman, who brings a solid amount of offence to the table. He has 19 points (2G / 17A) in 57 games this season.
