The Columbus Blue Jackets have acquired veteran goaltender Jeff Zatkoff via trade from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for future considerations.

Zatkoff, 30, has been assigned to the AHL’s Cleveland Monsters.

Zatkoff has not yet played this season. In 208 career AHL games, he has a record of 98-82-12 with a 2.45 goals-against average, a .915 save percentage and 16 shutouts with Ontario, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Manchester. He was an AHL All-Star in 2012 and twice was a recipient of the Harry “Hap” Holmes Memorial Award for outstanding team goaltending, in 2012-13 (with Brad Thiessen) and 2014-15 (with Matt Murray).

Zatkoff has also made 48 appearances in the NHL with Pittsburgh and Los Angeles, helping the Penguins win the Stanley Cup in 2016.
