MILEPOSTS—ACQUIRED: By the NHL Los Angeles Kings from the Detroit Red Wings, Center ANDRE ST. LAURENT and the Red Wings' first-round draft choices for the next two years as compensation for Center Dale McCourt's refusal to play for the Kings.

The Kings were unable to sign McCourt, who had his move to Los Angeles blocked in court.
