How's this for frightening?

The Los Angeles Kings, who already tip the scales on most opponents, have landed hulking Boston Bruins winger Milan Lucic.

The Bruins, who will reportedly retain close to half of Lucic's $6-million cap hit, will receive the 13th overall selection, goaltender Martin Jones, and prospect Colin Miller in exchange for the bruising winger.

Lucic will reach unrestricted free agency next summer - barring an extension - and is excited to have another chance to compete for a Stanley Cup.

Boston now owns pick Nos. 13, 14, and 15 (following the Dougie Hamilton trade), and is in prime position to make another deal, or move up in the draft.

Jones, who is without a contract, joins a loaded fleet of goaltenders in Boston's system. The Bruins have prospects Malcolm Subban, Zane McIntyre, and, of course, an elite incumbent starter in Tuukka Rask.

Miller scored 19 goals and 52 points from the blue line in 70 games with the Kings' American Hockey League affiliate in Manchester. He was drafted in the fifth round in 2012.
