The Los Angeles Kings traded left wing Simon Gagne to the Philadelphia Flyers for a conditional fourth-round draft pick on Tuesday.

Gagne, a four-time 30-goal scorer and seven-time 20-goal scorer, has struggled this season, scoring one goal in 11 games and has been a recent healthy scratch. He signed a two-year, $7 million contract with the Kings prior to the 2011-12 season.

A concussion caused Gagne to miss several months following a concussion last season, before making his return in the Kings' triumphant Stanley Cup finals.

Gagne returns to Philadelphia where he played his first 10 NHL seasons. He scored a career-high 47 goals during the 2005-06 season.

His struggle to return from concussions greatly limited his play in his latter seasons in Philadelphia.

The 32-year-old will be a free agent this summer.
