The Los Angeles Kings acquired veteran defenseman Denis Gauthier and a second-round pick in the 2010 draft from the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday for defenseman Patrik Hersley and forward Ned Lukacevic. Gauthier has played 489 NHL games over a nine-year career with the Flyers, Phoenix and Calgary, but he spent all of last season with Philadelphia's AHL affiliate. He had 18 points with the Philadelphia Phantoms.

Gauthier, Calgary's first-round pick in the 1995 draft, has 73 career points in the NHL.

Hersley played last season with the Manchester Monarchs (AHL) and the Reading Royals (ECHL). Lukacevic also played with the Royals.
