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 Flames have acquired Rinat Valiev and Matt Taormina from the Canadiens for Brett Kulak.

Valiev was drafted No.68 overall in 2014 and spent the first three and a half years of his career in Toronto. The 23-year-old has spent most of his time in the AHL, but has played in 12 NHL contests. Valiev will report to the Stockton Heat (AHL).

The Stars have acquired Connor Carrick from the Maple Leafs for a conditional 2019 seventh round draft pick.

Carrick lost out to Igor Ozhiganov, Justin Holl and Martin Marincin in training camp, so the Maple Leafs get a draft instead of losing him for nothin on waivers. The 24-year-old had 12 points (4G / 8A) in 47 games with the Maple Leafs last season and should push for a spot on the Stars’ third pairing. The seventh round pick will turn into a sixth round pick if he plays in 50 games with the Stars this season.

The Blues have acquired Jakub Jerabek from the Oilers for a 2020 sixth round draft pick.

Jerabek had just two goals and six assists across 36 games with the Canadiens and Capitals during his first season in the NHL in 2017-18. The 27-year-old defenseman heads to St. Louis where he is sure to be a depth piece on an already talented blueline. The draft pick that the Oilers received becomes a fifth round pick if Jerabek appears in 50-plus regular season games with the Blues this season.

The Golden Knights have acquired Max Pacioretty from the Canadiens for Tomas Tatar, Nick Suzuki and a 2019 2nd Round Pick.

Pacioretty is entering the final season of a six-year, $27M contract that he signed back in 2012. Despite a down-year in 2018, Pacioretty has been one of the NHL’s most consistent goal-scorers in recent years, scoring 30-plus goals in five of the last six (full 82 game) seasons. Since 2011-12, Pacioretty ranks ninth in the NHL in goals (206) and 25th in points (399). A career-worst 8.0 shooting percentage can be to blame for last year’s drop in production. Expect Pacioretty to thrive on a powerful Vegas offence and return to 30-goals in 2019.
