The Maple Leafs have acquired Jake Muzzin from the Kings for Carl Grundstrom, the rights to Sean Durzi and a 2019 first-round pick.
Toronto needed to bolster their blueline and did so by adding Muzzin, who has spent the first seven seasons of his career in Los Angeles. The Maple Leafs really needed a right-handed defenseman but Muzzin was a much cheaper alternative and goes to Toronto with one more season on his contract that carries a $4.0M AAV cap-hit. Muzzin, who is 6-foot-3, 213 lbs., who can produce solid offensive numbers and play physically. He projects to play on the top-pair with Morgan Rielly, which will allow Ron Hainsey to play significantly less taxing minutes.

The Kings have placed Jake Muzzin (undisclosed) on IR.
Muzzin was originally listed as questionable for tonight's game but after being placed on IR he certainly won't be in the lineup against the Predators. The Kings moved him to IR to make room for Christian Folin to be activated, so he will take Muzzin's spot in the lineup.

Muzzin (upper-body) has been cleared to play on Thursday.
This is great news for the Kings' and perfect timing following the indefinite suspension of Slava Voynov. Muzzin is the 'cross darling' and will be back on the top-pair with Drew Doughty and should be a rock solid fantasy defenseman this season.
Muzzin (upper-body) will meet with doctors today, optimistic about playing on Thursday.

The Kings have signed Jake Muzzin to a five-year deal worth $20 million.
The Kings will pay Muzzin an average of $4 million per year, which is a very reasonable cap-hit for your number-2 defenseman. Muzzin has not played yet this season but is coming off of a 24-point (5G / 19A) year and is just 25-years-old. He has an absolute cannon from the point and that cannon will be on the Kings blueline for five more years.
Muzzin (undisclosed) is doubtful for Tuesday's game.
Muzzin has yet to be medically cleared to play on Tuesday and he expressed doubt over his availability for tomorrow. It sounds like the most likely scenario is for Muzzin to return this weekend when the Kings take on the Stars on Saturday.
