Bernier trade completed, first notes on Frattin and Scrivens

Bernier Jonathan LA Kings MayorsManor
Nothing like a little hockey news over Sunday brunch.

It’s official. After months years of speculation, the Kings have traded Jonathan Bernier. Although he’s been linked to over half the teams in the league at various times, his next stop will be the Toronto Maple Leafs.

In return for the former first round pick, LA received forward Matt Frattin, goaltender Ben Scrivens and a second round draft pick in 2014 or 2015 (Toronto gets to choose which year). Plus – and this is a big one – the Kings will receive $500K in cap space from the Leafs for the 2013-14 season. That is huge considering LA’s major problems (as explained here).

We’re going to have plenty more in the next hour, including comments from GM Dean Lombardi. In the meantime, here a couple of quick notes on the players involved…

– Scrivens went undrafted, was named ECAC Goalie of the Year at Cornell, played with the Reading Royals of the ECHL (like Jonathan Quick) and spent the last two years with the Maple Leafs.

– Matt Frattin (6-foot, 200lbs) is a natural right wing, but played left wing this season in Toronto. He was originally selected in the fourth round back in 2007. Frattin played college hockey at the University of North Dakota with LAs 2010 first round pick Derek Forbort. UND is also Matt Greene’s alma mater. He’s scored 15 goals in 82 games over the last two seasons with the Leafs.

– Frattin also was a teammate of Ron Hextall’s son, Brett, at North Dakota for three years. So, it’s safe to assume Ron saw him play plenty.

– In 2011 Frattin was a finalist for the Hobey Baker Memorial Award (trophy for the top college hockey player). Here’s his highlight reel that made the rounds at the time:
