Hunter accepts tryout with LA Kings

Former Islanders winger Trent Hunter, who was traded to the Devils in July and bought out by New Jersey soon after, will attend camp with the LA Kings on a tryout basis, a source confirmed to ESPN.com

The 31-year-old Red Deer, Alberta native was shipped to New Jersey earlier this summer in a deal that brought veteran Brian Rolston and his much-needed $5.062 million cap hit to the Islanders.

Hunter, a two-time 20-goal scorer who played seven-plus seasons for the Islanders, was limited to only 17 games last year with a season-ending knee surgery.
