LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have acquired forward Matt Frattin, goaltender Ben Scrivens and a second round draft selection from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for goaltender Jonathan Bernier, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced this morning.
Frattin this past season played in 25 regular season games with the Maple Leafs. He recorded 13 points – including seven goals (three of which were game-winning goals) – and he enjoyed a plus-six rating. During the playoffs, the first postseason action of his career, he played in six games and recorded two assists. He also this past season played in 21 games for the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League during the NHL lockout.
Frattin, a 6-0, 200-pounder from Edmonton, Alberta – during the 2011-12 season played in 56 games for the Maple Leafs and recorded 15 points (8-7=15). He also played in 23 games for the Marlies and recorded 18 points in 23 games.
In 2010-11, Frattin played the bulk of the season with the Marlies. He made his NHL debut (April 9, 2011), appearing in one game with the Maple Leafs that season. In 82 career regular season NHL games, all with the Maple Leafs, Frattin has 28 points (15-13=28), a plus-one rating and 29 penalty minutes.
In 2007 Toronto selected Frattin, who is 25 years old, in the fourth round (99th overall) of the annual Entry Draft. He played hockey at the University of North Dakota from 2008-11, and in his junior season he scored 36 goals as he was a Hobey Baker finalist.
