The Canucks have acquired Tanner Pearson from the Penguins for Erik Gudbranson.

Pearson got off to a nice start in Pittsburgh but dropped down the depth chart after they added Nick Bjugstad and Jared McCann. Overall, Pearson has nine goals and six assists (15 points) in 61 games between the Kings and Penguins. He has a much better chance to play in the Canucks top-6 and could slot onto the top line with Bo Horvat right away.

The Penguins have acquired Tanner Pearson from the Kings for Carl Hagelin.

Pearson has recorded back-to-back 40-plus point seasons, but has struggled in the first 17 games of the season. Pearson has just one assist and 24 shots this season and carries a 49.1 CorsiFor%. With Hagelin going back the other way, that opens the door for Pearson to play on a line with Evgeni Malkin. Pearson is in the second year of a four-year contract that carries a $3.75M AAV cap-hit.

Pearson has served his suspension and will play on Tuesday.

Pearson has served his four-game suspension (two preseason games, two regular season games) and is set to return to the lineup on Tuesday. The Kings are very thin upfront, so Pearson’s return is huge for their top-6. He had 15 goals and 21 assists (36 points) last year and should build off of that this season. Teddy Purcell will sit with Pearson coming back into the fold.

The Los Angeles Kings have recalled Tanner Pearson from Manchester (AHL).

Pearson, 21, made his NHL debut in Game 3 of the second round series between Los Angeles and San Jose and appears to be capable of providing value to the Kings, who selected him with the final pick of the first round of the 2012 NHL Draft. In 15 games with Manchester this season, the 6-foot, 205 pound forward has recorded 11 points (7-4=11) in 15 games while taking 52 shots.

The Los Angeles Kings have sent Tanner Pearson to Manchester (AHL).

Pearson was selected with the 30th pick in the 2012 NHL Draft. He was always a good offensive player but he has turned himself into a reliable two-way forward which is why he was expected to crack the Kings opening day roster. He and Tyler Toffoli should enjoy a lot of success in the AHL and will likely find themselves in a Kings uniform at some point this year.
