The Los Angeles Kings acquired defenseman Christian Wolanin from the Ottawa Senators for center Michael Amadio.

What does it give the Los Angeles Kings
Both Wolanin and Amadio are fringe NHL talents, so both were acquired for depth purposes. LA is deep at center, so it makes sense to trade Amadio for a defenseman, a position they lack depth in.

What does it give the Ottawa Senators
The Senators gave Wolanin several chances to establish himself along the blueline, but he did not take full advantage of it. So, they will give Amadio a shot to see if he can fill a depth role at center.

Fantasy impact
There is no fantasy impact here, as both Wolanin and Amadio will likely spend most of the rest of 2020-21 in the American Hockey League (or on the NHL taxi squad).
