BOSTON, MA - The Boston Bruins sent forward Marco Sturm to the Los Angeles Kings for future considerations on Saturday.

The deal is contingent upon Sturm passing a physical that will be given by Los Angeles' training staff.

Sturm, 32, has yet to play a game this season as he began the campaign on injured reserve after having surgery to repair MCL and ACL injuries to his right knee suffered in Game 1 of last year's Eastern Conference Semifinals against Philadelphia.

The native of Germany was acquired by Boston from San Jose on November 30, 2005 in the blockbuster Joe Thornton deal, and over 302 games with the Bruins he totaled 106 goals and 87 assists.

In 855 games over 12 seasons with San Jose and Boston, he has amassed 234 goals and 232 assists.
