Lost their backup goaltender to Jonathan Quick in Martin Jones, but gained Boston’s Power Forward star in Lucic. Lucic will add toughness to a Kings lineup, which already has Captain Dustin Brown. The Kings are starting to make a habit of their backups becoming potential starters in this league, so losing Jones just means the next guy comes up.
