Forward linked to rival

Published May 20, 2023 at 9:20

Amid limited cap space and an excess of forwards, the Los Angeles Kings are now considering the possibility of trading Alex Iafallo.

Iafallo had a strong season with the Kings in 2022-23, tallying 14 goals and 36 points in 59 games. Consequently, teams seeking assistance on their second line may express interest in the 29-year-old forward.

Although Iafallo has been a consistent contributor for the Kings, they have several similar players who produce at similar or higher levels. Furthermore, Iafallo carries a $4 million cap hit until the end of the 2024-25 season, making it beneficial for the Kings to explore potential trades.

The final outcome regarding Iafallo remains uncertain. Teams such as the Washington Capitals, Pittsburgh Penguins, Toronto Maple Leafs, Colorado Avalanche, and Calgary Flames could be potential suitors for his services.
