NHL Trade News

Is there anything more exciting than a trade? All of the NHL’s latest trades and how it will affect the player’s fantasy hockey outlook.

The Wild have acquired Calen Addison, Alex Galchenyuk and a 2020 first-round pick from the Penguins for Jason Zucker.

Addison was a second-round pick (No.53 overall) in 2018 and has had a terrific season with the Lethbridge Hurricanes (WHL). The 19-year-old has scored 10 goals with 33 assists (43 points) in 39 WHL games and will likely report to Iowa (AHL) once his season is over.

The Wild have acquired Alex Galchenyuk, Calen Addison and a 2020 first-round pick from the Penguins for Jason Zucker.

Galchenyuk’s career has completely crumbled into pieces. After posting 50-plus points in two of his last three seasons with Montreal, Galchenyuk has been traded three times in two seasons and has just 58 points (24G / 34A) in his last 117 games, including 17 points (5G / 12A) in 45 games this year. He will likely fill a similar bottom-6 role in Minnesota. Galchenyuk will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of 2020.

Alex Galchenyuk's Jersey
The Penguins have acquired Jason Zucker from the Wild for Alex Galchenyuk, Calen Addison and a 2020 first-round pick.

Zucker has scored 14 goals with 15 assists (29 points) in 45 games with the Wild this season. Zucker, who is a one-time 30-goal scorer, will get a huge fantasy boost because he will likely slot in the top-6 with Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin. After this year, Zucker has three years left with a $5.5M cap-hit (per PuckPedia).
