The Washington Capitals acquired forward Carl Hagelin in a trade with the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday. In exchange for Hagelin, the Kings are receiving a 2019 third-round draft pick. 

The team is also receiving a conditional sixth-round draft pick in 2020. 

“We are pleased to welcome Carl to our organization,” Capitals Senior Vice President and GM Brian MacLellan said. “We felt this trade enables us to add depth up front and provide us with a veteran player with a tremendous amount of speed to help us on the penalty kill.”
