The Vancouver Canucks have traded goaltender Roberto Luongo to the Florida Panthers.
A source confirmed to The Canadian Press that Luongo was headed back to his former team.
Dustin Penner has been traded from the Anaheim Ducks to the Washington Capitals.
The 31-year-old forward has 13 goals and 19 assists in 49 games for the Ducks this season.
Here’s a closer look at the Kings and Ducks going into the deadline:
Kings: Additional scoring to aid their 28th-ranked offense, which averages 2.32 goals per game.
Ducks: A big center or a veteran defenseman to make them even more difficult to play against.
B’s scout Adam Creighton at last 3 Blue Jackets games per @Aportzline, & pair of Columbus scouts at B’s/Caps. Something may be cooking there

Two league sources told the Daily News that the Flyers have tabled a “substantial offer” to try and pry Kesler from the Canucks. They have also asked about acquiring Vancouver defenseman Alexander Edler, who is reportedly on the market, as part of a larger trade – though that combined price is steep.
