The Los Angeles Kings traded defenseman Alec Martinez to the Vegas Golden Knights , parting ways with another veteran.
In exchange, the Kings will receive second-round draft picks in 2020 and 2021.
Martinez, 32, can provide a defensive boost for the Golden Knights, who rank 17th in the league in goals surrendered. He also has one goal and seven assists in 41 games this season.
The trade continues the rebuilding process for the Kings, who are moving their assets in exchange for draft picks. Over the next two drafts, they own seven first- and second-round selections, plus a conditional second-round pick.
