Kings Acquire Dustin Penner from Oilers for Colten Teubert, Draft Picks

The Los Angeles Kings announced today that they have acquired left wing Dustin Penner from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for prospect defenseman Colten Teubert, a first round pick in the 2011 Entry Draft, and a conditional third round pick in 2012. The third round pick can become a second round pick if the Kings make the playoffs this season. Penner still has one more year left on his current contract, while Teubert still has two years left on his entry-level deal. In 62 games this season with Edmonton, Penner has 21 goals and 18 assists for 39 points, while Teubert has two goals and eight assists for 10 points and 57 penalty minutes in 39 games with Manchester of the AHL. This is a good move for the Kings, as Penner will bring the top-six winger the team had been seeking all season. He will bring plenty of goal-scoring talent to the team, as well as a physical presence, and should fit in very well with the team. The Kings did give up a premium to land Penner, and the draft picks can help the Oilers continue to rebuild their team. In Teubert, Edmonton gets a very physical blueliner who has all-around upside. He will likely jump into the Oilers' lineup next season, but could possibly play some NHL games this season if the team feels he's ready to make the jump to the NHL.
