NHL: Los Angeles Kings acquire Ben Bishop from Tampa Bay Lightning

Bishop will be sent with a 2017 fifth-round pick to Los Angeles in exchange for fellow netminder Peter Budaj, prospect defenseman Erik Cernak, a 2017 seventh-round pick and a 2017 conditional pick.

Tampa Bay will retain 20 percent of Bishop's salary, according to the Kings' official team site.

Tampa Bay sits in 12th place in the Eastern Conference and six games out of a playoff spot, while the Kings are in ninth and trail the St. Louis Blues by two points. Last year, he also posted a career-high.926 save percentage, just to see that number creep down to.911 this season.

She added to "Entertainment Tonight": "My oldest, 16, is not the man of the house [because] you have to have your own dreams. So, let the record show that while Oak may be an idiot - a description he's told me is apt - he is not a loser.

While Quick was on the shelf, Budaj filled in well as the starter, posting a record of 27-20-3 with a 2.12 GAA and a.917 SV% in 53 games.

Monday will mark the third meeting of the season between the Kings and Wild, and the home team will look significantly different as well. The 30-year-old Bishop is expected to backstop Jonathan Quick who returned to the lineup after missing 59 games due to a groin injury. We're not playing, what do you guys play?

Cernak, a second-round pick by L.A.in 2015, has three goals, 14 assists and a plus-27 rating to go along with 47 penalty minutes in 40 games with Erie of the Ontario Hockey League.

Khan is coming off of a brutal KO defeat at the hands of Canelo Alvarez, but that was a fight where he was undersized and over-matched.

Bishop compiled a 54-34-7 record at ME with a 2.29 goals-against average and a.912 save percentage in his three seasons.

"The one good thing about this is Johnny and him were together at the World Cup so the familiarity with each other", Lombardi said.

Though the move was unconventional for Los Angeles, since most teams don't utilize two high-end starting goaltenders, it actually wasn't all that risky.
