Details regarding the salary cap need to be finalized so the trade can go through. The Kings are also trying to another veteran forward before making the trade with Montreal official.
Alexander Frolov, 27, will be an unrestricted free agent at season’s end. He has recorded 13 goals and 24 assists for 37 points in 58 games with the Kings. His name has circulated in trade rumors all season long.
Frolov is earning $4M in 2009-10, but is a $2.9M cap hit.
Matt D’Agostini, 23, has slumped badly for the Canadiens, notching only two goals and two assists for four points in 38 games. Yannick Weber, 21, has mostly played in the AHL this year, playing only five games with Montreal recording no point.
The move would make sense for Montreal as they are ravaged by injuries up front with key players such as Michael Cammalleri, Andrei Kostitsyn and Benoit Pouliot all out until March. Frolov also had a lot of success playing with Cammalleri in LA a few years ago.
Stay tuned for more updates!
