Carl Grundstrom News
The Los Angeles Kings acquired Carl Grundstrom, the rights to Sean Durzi and a 2019 first-rounder from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Jake Muzzin.
The Leafs selected Grundstrom in the second round of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft where he had 17 goals and 24 points in 35 games with Sweden’s Frolunda HC last season and he’s managed to put up 13 goals and 29 points in 42 games with the Toronto Marlies in his first full AHL season so far. Grundstrom has a better shot of cracking the NHL at some point this season now that he’s on a Kings team that’s not as deep as the Maple Leafs. He will report to Los Angeles’ minor-league affiliate for now, though.

Grundström made his Swedish Hockey League debut playing with Modo Hockey during the 2014 to 2015 SHL (Swedish Hockey League) season. Following Modo’s relegation to the HockeyAllsvenskan at the conclusion of the 2015 to 2016 season, Grundström remained in the SHL in signing a two-year contract with Frölunda Hockey Club on April 13, 2016.
In the 2016–17 season, Grundström recorded a career-best 14 goals and 20 points in 45 games with Frölunda. On April 28, 2017, he left Frölunda mid-contract, using his NHL exit clause in agreeing to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
After attending the Maple Leafs training camp for the 2017–18 season, Grundström was re-assigned to continue his development on loan in Sweden with Frölunda HC on October 2, 2017, where he placed second on the club with 17 goals and finished with 24 points in 35 games. For the second consecutive season, he was re-assigned to join the Toronto Marlies in the post-season. He helped the Marlies to claim their first Calder Cup, posting 8 goals and 14 points in 20 playoff games, leading all AHL rookies in playoff scoring.
In his first full season in North America in 2018–19 season, he continued on assignment with the Toronto Marlies. He collected 29 points in 42 games before he was traded by the Maple Leafs, along with prospect Sean Durzi and a 2019 first-round draft pick to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for Jake Muzzin on January 28, 2019. He was immediately re-assigned to join the Kings’ AHL affiliate, the Ontario Reign.
