Hurricanes acquire Zykov from Kings

The Carolina Hurricanes, parent club of the AHL’s Charlotte Checkers, have acquired forward Valentin Zykov and a conditional draft pick from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for forward Kris Versteeg.

Zykov, a 20-year-old rookie from St. Petersburg, Russia, has tallied seven goals and seven assists in 43 AHL games with the Ontario Reign this season.

A second-round draft choice by Los Angeles in 2013, Zykov spent three seasons in the QMJHL, where he was that league’s Rookie of the Year in 2012-13. He also won a bronze medal with Russia at the 2014 World Junior Championships.
