    Kings acquire D Keaton Ellerby for pick

    The Los Angeles Kings have acquired defenseman Keaton Ellerby from Florida in exchange for a fifth-round selection in the 2013 NHL Draft and assigned defenseman Andrew Campbell to Manchester (AHL), Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today.

    Ellerby, 24, has played in 125 career NHL games (all with the Panthers), recording 17 points (2-15=17) and 70 penalty minutes. The 6-5, 217-pound native of Strathmore, Alberta was drafted by the Panthers in the first-round (10th overall) in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

    This season, Ellerby has appeared in nine games with the Panthers, recording zero points and 36 penalty minutes. Ellerby is expected to join the team in Nashville and his jersey number has not been determined at this time.

    The fifth-round selection traded to Florida is the same fifth-round selection acquired by the Kings from New Jersey in exchange for forward Andrei Loktionov on Wednesday, February 6.

    I do hope the change of scenery will do him good. It's nice to see things beginning
    to move with a sense of urgency because of the shortened season. It's fine to let
    it ride for a while the way things have been going, but clearly the time has come
    to shore up the defense.

    Kinda cool that he's a first cousin of Shane Doan.
