EL SEGUNDO, CA — Due to the salary cap dropping by $6 million for the 2013-14 season, the Los Angeles Kings have already undergone some expected roster changes.

Indeed, veteran defenseman Rob Scuderi signed as an unrestricted free agent with the Pittsburgh Penguins, returning to the team he won his first Stanley Cup with. Forwards Brad Richardson and Dustin Penner also signed unrestricted free agent contracts with the Vancouver Canucks and the Anaheim Ducks, respectively.

With their August 2 signing of left wing Kyle Clifford, the Kings managed to avoid arbitration and re-sign all of their restricted free agents, including defenseman Slava Voynov. But they are approximately $822,000 over the salary cap, and they have 25 players on their National Hockey League roster, two over the 23-man limit.

NHL teams can exceed both limits until the 2013-14 season begins in October. But simple mathematics indicates that at least one trade involving a defenseman (Frozen Royalty has predicted since the end of the 2013-14 season that Alec Martinez will be on the trading block), and maybe replacing a more expensive player on the third or fourth line with a less expensive one, are forthcoming.
