The Kings have traded Andrei Loktionov to the Devils, according to James Mirtle of The Globe & Mail. The Devils reportedly will give up a 2013 fifth-round draft pick.

Loktionov, who played 39 games for the Kings last season, two less than the 41 games required to get his name on the Stanley Cup, requested a trade a week ago. The 22-year-old Russian wished to see more minutes at center, his original position.

Loktionov was picked in the fifth round of the 2008 draft, then made his NHL debut in November 2009 before promptly dislocating his shoulder, sidelining him the rest of the season.

He scored four goals and three assists in 19 games with the Kings in a season shortened by injuries and surgery.

Loktionov shared time between the Kings and Monarchs last season, scoring three goals in 39 regular season NHL games. He played in two playoff games during the Kings' run to the Cup, and has scored seven goals in 35 games with Manchester this season.
