Mar 6 - 9:43 AM

Matt Frattin has been dealt to the Columbus Blue Jackets with a couple of draft picks in exchange for Marian Gaborik.

Frattin was highly sought after by the Kings in the last couple of seasons and they finally got him, along with Ben Scrivens for Jonathan Bernier. Well the Kings have now dealt both Frattin and Scrivens. Frattin was a huge disappointment this season with only two goals and six points in 40 games. The Kings will give up the second round pick they acquired from Toronto in the Frattin deal and a conditional third that is reliant on the Kings going past the first round or Gaborik re-signs with Los Angeles.

Frattin has been a healthy scratch in seven of the Kings last nine games and 17 times this season.

Frattin has only two goals and six points in 40 games and has not had a point since November 19 when he had a goal and an assist against the Lightning.

Matt Frattin showed signs of improvement during Monday's game.

Frattin was a healthy scratch on Saturday. "I watched the first period with him, all the shifts this morning. He was much better last night," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. "I know the young guys put pressure on themselves to score or think that they're not doing their job if they don't score, but if you can just show 'em the detail in the game and be smart enough to learn from that, then he gets to be better." Frattin has no goals and three assists in nine games this season.

Forward Matt Frattin, obtained by Los Angeles from Toronto in the Jonathan Bernier deal, is now intimately familiar with the repercussions of a couple of miscues while playing for Kings coach Darryl Sutter.

Frattin was among the Kings who lapsed in allowing Nashville's Matt Cullen to score a first-period goal Thursday. And when a similar Predators pass got by Frattin and pressured Kings' defenders about midway through the third period, he found his ice time in the Kings' 2-1 shootout victory down to 2 minutes, 22 seconds after the second intermission. Frattin, 25, is goalless with three assists through eight games for the Kings (5-3), and his goal differential of minus-five is the worst among Kings forwards. He has only one shot on net in the past three games. Although Sutter said Friday he didn't bench Frattin for any specific reason, Frattin said it was made clear to him afterward, with an assistant coach telling him, "I can't play you if this is going to happen this late in the game and the score's 1-1."
