While the Blue Jackets obtained forward Matt Frattin and two draft picks (a second-rounder and a conditional third-round pick) in exchange for Marian Gaborik, Columbus will retain a portion of the forward's pro-rated salary.

As per Capgeek, this addendum (and the subsequent demotion of Linden Vey to the AHL) puts the Kings at roughly $640K under the salary cap for the remainder of the season.
