The Edmonton Oilers have acquired winger Mike Cammalleri from the Los Angeles Kings in a deal that will see Jussi Jokinen heading back in the other direction, according to Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet.

The signing of Michael Cammalleri was a minor, if not underwhelming, move in the summer by the Kings, but it represented a homecoming for the veteran forward because he had spent the first five seasons of his career here. That one year in Calgary proved to be the best season of Cammalleri's career as he scored 39 goals and 82 points in 81 games. He can still be a productive NHLer, just don't expect him to carry much fantasy value going forward. He has totaled a mere point in 14 games this season, by way of an assist, and has struggled to contribute while on the Oilers' fourth line. He has a one-year contract worth $1.1 million. The Oilers have just 14, good for second-worst in the conference.

Joining the Montreal Canadiens in 2009-10, Cammalleri was able to find success wearing the blue-blanc-rouge as well, though injuries and inconsistency began to plague him, leading to his trade in the middle of a game against the Boston Bruins. Jokinen, 34, will play for his seventh team in his 13-year career.


The Oilers have scored 38 goals this season - which is last in the National Hockey League in goals scored as does the team's goals per game.

That homecoming lasted six weeks into the season.
