There’s been a question floating around the NHL since Dion Phaneuf was taken out of a game on Tuesday and subsequently traded.

What would the former Ottawa Senators defenseman bring to the Los Angeles Kings?

The answer: goals, apparently.

Well, one goal so far. Phaneuf tallied his fourth of the season in his first game with the Kings against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday.

It’s not what you’d refer to as a snipe.

On the glass half empty side, Phaneuf was also on the ice when the Penguins scored.

The Phaneuf giveth and the Phaneuf taketh away.

Hockey is great.
