LOS ANGELES (AP) The Los Angeles Kings traded Stanley Cup-winning goal scorer Alec Martinez to the Vegas Golden Knights for two second-round draft picks on Wednesday.

The Kings got the Knights' second-round pick in 2020 and St. Louis' second-round choice in 2021 for Martinez, the defenseman who scored the iconic double-overtime goal that won Los Angeles' second Stanley Cup six years ago.

The 32-year-old Martinez has spent his entire NHL career with the Kings, who drafted him in 2007. He cracked Los Angeles' lineup for good in late 2010 and has spent the ensuing decade as a steady, productive two-way defenseman.
