Goaltender Ben “The Professor” Scrivens has been traded to the Edmonton Oilers for a 2014 NHL Draft third round pick. Scrivens stepped in giving exceptional minutes in the net for the Kings when starting Goaltender Jonathan Quick became injured in November.

In 19 games with the Kings, Scrivens has a 7-5-4 record with a 1.97 Goals Against Average, .931 Save Percentage and three Shutouts. Scrivens was acquired in the off-season along with Matt Frattin when Jonathan Bernier was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Before the announcement of Scrivens the Oilers traded their goaltender Devan Dubnyk to the Nashville Predators for forward Matt Hendricks.

Now with roster space the Kings have recalled Martin Jones from the American Hockey Leagues, Manchester Monarchs. Earlier this season Jones served as Scrivens back-up and posted a 8-3-0 record in his career NHL start, tying the leagues record. With a 1.41 Goals Against Average, .950 Save Percentage and three Shutouts, he was named the NHL’s Co-Rookie of the Month in December and the second star for the second week of December.

Jon Rosen of lakingsinsider.com reported that both Jones and forward Linden Vey of the Monarchs have joined the Kings on their road-trip.

Scrivens has only logged 51 NHL games, and the opportunity is bigger in Edmonton to be a starting goaltender and help the team advance. In those 51 games Scrivens recorded a 18-19-0 record, with 2.54 Goals Against Average, .917 Save Percentage, and five Shutouts.

Thank You and Best of Luck!
