Goaltender Ben Bishop #30 of the Tampa Bay Lightning guards the net during third period action against the Winnipeg Jets at the MTS Centre on February 11, 2017 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Included in the package for the Lightning is 19-year-old defenseman Erik Cernak, a seventh-round pick in the 2017 NHL Draft and a conditional pick in the 2017 NHL Draft.

Tampa Bay sits in 12th place in the Eastern Conference and six games out of a playoff spot, while the Kings are in ninth and trail the St. Louis Blues by two points.

However this season Budaj's numbers are superior.

He is 16-12-3 with a 2.55 goals-against average and.911 save percentage in 32 games this season. The 30-year-old Bishop is expected to backstop Jonathan Quick who returned to the lineup after missing 59 games due to a groin injury. He looked sharp too, in the Kings' 4-1 victory.

The Los Angeles Kings were on a plane bound for a Monday night road game versus the Minnesota Wild before the first stars hit the red carpet at the Oscars, but the team from Hollywood did a nice job producing a blockbuster on Sunday anyway.

Ben Bishop, meanwhile, is out of a contract this summer and the Lightning probably wanted to get something for him before they let him walk for free.
