Los Angeles Kings Acquire Brayden McNabb From Buffalo Sabres

The Los Angeles Kings have shored up their defense while waiting to see what forward they can acquire, by nabbing blueliner Brayden McNabb from the Buffalo Sabres.

McNabb is a 6’4″, 210 lb bleuliner who becomes a depth player on the Kings.  He is in his third pro season, and has played 37 career NHL games.  He is pointless in 12 NHL games this season.  He is a stay at home defenseman with size that can be counted on in his own end to be a shutdown type player and penalty killer when the need exists.

He does have a track record of scoring points in the AHL, and possesses a great shot. He does have 7 career NHL points.

The Kings apparently give up winger Hudson Fasching & Nicholas Deslauriers for McNabb and 2 second round picks.

Fasching was a memeber of Team USA at the World Junior Championships and is currently attending the University of Minnesota.  He was LA’s 4th round pick in the 2013 draft.

Delauriers is a solid prospect who has been buried in Manchester for 3 seasons.  He was the Kings’ third round pick in 2009, drafted as a defenseman but converted to forward as a pro.
