Colin Fraser is pointless against the Vancouver Canucks

Ryan Smyth to Edmonton. It’s the trade that just won’t go away.

Last week, it was Smyth’s return to LA as a member of the Oilers that dominated the headlines. Now, it’s the other side of that trade that will be a focal point of tonight’s game.

Colin Fraser, the player who was eventually acquired by the Kings – after Edmonton GM Steve Tambellini first tried sending Gilbert Brule, something that was rejected by the NHL – will make his debut in tonight’s game vs. Vancouver.

Like Brule, Fraser was injured at the time of the trade and that’s an ongoing issue between Kings GM Dean Lombardi and his counterpart with the Oilers. The entire he said-he said issue is a story for another day.  Let’s focus on Fraser, who will center the Kings fourth line tonight.

Soon after he was acquired this summer, his former Oilers teammate Dustin Penner came on MayorsManor and had several things to say about the 26-forward – including ‘He competes in every area of the ice. He’s a third or fourth line center, who’s good on draws. He’ll do anything to help his team win.’

Penner went on to talk about his overall character and sense of humor, as well – which is something Fraser put on display himself during his first interview as a King (linked here).

Now, as for tonight. Well, he comes in with 224 NHL games on his resume – plus a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2010.

He has 41 points, including 16 goals.

In 11 games, he’s also pointless against the Vancouver Canucks.
