The Carolina Hurricanes acquired prospect Valentin Zykov and a conditional fifth-round pick from the Los Angeles Kings for Kris Versteeg.

Zykov was the Kings' second round pick, 37th overall, in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. The 20-year-old has a good offensive potential, but he's struggling to produce points in his first season in the AHL. Zykov has seven goals and 14 points in 43 games with the Ontario Reign. He's probably a year or two away from contributing at the NHL level.
