The Canadiens traded forward Torrey Mitchell to the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday afternoon in exchange for a fifth-round conditional pick in 2018.

With respect to the condition, if the Kings make the playoffs then the Canadiens receive their own fourth-round pick in 2018 back - which was traded away in the Dwight King deal at the trade deadline last season - instead of Los Angeles' fifth-round pick in 2018.

A native of Greenfield Park, QC, Mitchell, 32, joined the Canadiens during the 2014-15 season.
