The Washington Capitals acquired forward Carl Hagelin from the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday in exchange for a 2019 third-round draft pick and a conditional sixth-round selection in 2020, the teams announced.

Los Angeles will receive the conditional sixth-round pick if Washington wins two playoff series in 2019 and Hagelin plays in at least 50 percent of any two rounds combined, according to TSN's Pierre LeBrun.

The Kings will retain 50 percent of Hagelin's remaining salary, according to the Washington Post's Isabelle Khurshudyan.

Hagelin was traded to the Kings from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for Tanner Pearson in November.

The 30-year-old has recorded 8 points in 38 games this season, split between the Kings and Penguins.

Hagelin will make his Capitals debut Saturday versus the Buffalo Sabres, Khurshudyan notes.
