The Carolina Hurricanes have traded the rights to defenceman Jack Johnson and defenceman Oleg Tverdovsky to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for defenceman Tim Gleason and centre Eric Belanger.

Johnson, who the Hurricanes picked third overall in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, is a highly regarded prospect. He tallied ten goals, 22 assists and 149 penalty minutes in 38 games for the University of Michigan last season.

Tverdovsky scored three goals and chipped in 20 assists (12 on the power play) in 72 games with the Hurricanes last season. In 687 career NHL games he has 77 goals and 236 assists.

Wow, I kind of expected it though. The Hurricanes were in need of defencemen and Johnson wasn't ready to play yet. The Kings now have a great prospect.
