Lightning trades Peter Budaj to Kings, acquires forward Andy Andreoff

Sixteen months after acquiring Peter Budaj from the Kings, the Lightning today returned the veteran goaltender to Los Angeles.

The Lightning traded Budaj for forward Andy Andreoff, general manager Steve Yzerman announced in a news release.

Andreoff, 27, had three goals and nine points, along with 50 penalty minutes, in 45 games with the Kings this past season. He had two game-winning goals.

Budaj, 35, appeared in eight games for the Lightning in 2017-18, starting seven. He had a 3-3-1 record with a 3.77 goals-against average and .876 save percentage.

He was acquired in a February 2017 trade — along with defenseman Erik Cernak, a seventh-round pick and a conditional selection in the 2017 draft —  for former Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop and a fifth-round pick.
