IACOPELLI FOR WATSON
The Chicago Blackhawks acquired winger Spencer Watson from the Los Angeles Kings for winger Matt Iacopelli.
What does it give the Chicago Blackhawks
This is a straight swap of minor-league wingers who have spent time both in the AHL and ECHL this season. In Watson Chicago gets the younger player, as Watson turns 23 in April.
What does it give the Los Angeles Kings
In Iacopelli, the Kings get a bigger winger who is two years older. He is not expected to play with Los Angeles, which is the same as Watson (who has yet to make his NHL debut too).
There is nothing to see here.
