It looks like Jarome Iginla will be on the move from the Mile High City to LA as the Colorado Avalanche have dealt him to the Kings.

Forward Jarome Iginla has been traded to the Los Angeles Kings. In exchange, the Colorado Avalanche, who signed Iginla in 2014, will receive a conditional 2018 fourth-round draft pick.

Iginla will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. The veteran right winger waived his full no-movement clause in order to move to Los Angeles.

The Edmonton native is in the last year of a three-year, $16-million contract and comes with a cap hit of $5.3 million. The Avalanche will retain 50 per cent of Iginla’s salary in the trade.

Iginla, who has 1,535 career NHL games under his belt, was dealt near the deadline in 2013, when he was sent from the Calgary Flames to the Pittsburgh Penguins. With Pittsburgh, he scored 12 points in 15 playoff games. The Penguins lost in the conference finals that year to the Boston Bruins.

Through 61 games this season, Iginla has eight goals and 10 assists.
