The Los Angeles Kings have acquired defenseman Robyn Regehr from the Buffalo Sabres in a trade for two second-round draft picks.
The defending Stanley Cup champions announced the deal on their Twitter account Monday, saying the trade is contingent on Regehr passing a medical exam.
In exchange, the Sabres acquired the Kings second-round picks in 2014 and 2015.
The 13-year NHL veteran will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and waived his no-trade clause to approve the deal.
He has two assists in 29 games this season, but Los Angeles covets Regehr's physical defensive play while defensemen Matt Greene and Willie Mitchell remain out with long-term injuries.
Regehr spent the past two seasons with Buffalo after 11 seasons with Calgary, where he played for Kings coach Darryl Sutter.

The trade market for available veteran, stay-at-home defensemen is very sparce right now. Which creates a ton of value for Sabers UFA-to-be, Robyn Regehr. As the witching hour of 3pm Wednesday 4/3/13 draws closer, Regehr's intrinsic value will continue to rise just because the supply is low and the demand is getting higher by the hour.
Regehr played some nasty and passionate...
There have obviously been way more lows than highs under Terry Pegula's ownership. Who would have thought that two years ago? All the dreams we had about money changing the trajectory of this team for the better was nothing more than treachery.
We get our legendary coach fired and the team seems to be on the cusp of making another heroic run to 10th place for the 3rd straight...

Moments after it was announced that the Sabres have traded Robyn Regehr to Los Angeles, the team announced yet another roster move.
The team has called up forward Luke Adam from Rochester in time for tomorrow’s contest against Pittsburgh. While a call up usually doesn’t signify much, the fact that it happened late on a Monday night could mean otherwise.
