Per various Twitter posts: Jones claimed by LA, Kings, Teslak called up due to Backlund's illness

I see a post on Twitter from Tim McManus, the Phantoms beat writer, that says:

PSPhantoms: Teslak called up becuse Backlund is ill. He may not make trip to Toronto.

Meanwhile, I am still waiting to see a news article link, regarding the claiming of Randy Jones by the Los Angeles Kings, but several Philly hockey reporters have posted on Twitter about it.

tpanotch: La Kings claim randy jones.

tpanotch: "that,s the risk you take." holmgren on losing jones.

DNFlyers: I have confirmed though that Randy Jones was claimed by the Kings. Was this a handshake deal with Ron Hextall / Dean Lombardi?

FlyersOnTheFly: RT @LAKingsHockey: The #LAKings have claimed defenseman Randy Jones off waivers from the #Flyers.

Shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot! I was afraid this would happen. A player of his caliber, for only half his salary, was just too good for other NHL teams to pass up.

Sigh. :(
