Nashville Predators

The Predators have acquired Luke Kunin and a 2020 fourth-round pick (No.101 overall) from the Wild for Nick Bonino, a 2020 second-round pick (No.37 overall) and a 2020 third-round pick (No.70 overall).

Kunin is a pending RFA, who is projected to sign a contract in the range of $3.25M AAV, which would be $850K savings from Nick Bonino's $4.1M AAV cap hit. Kunin is coming off of the best season of his young career, scoring 15 goals with 16 assists (31 points) in 63 games and has even more upside in Nashville, where he'll be surrounded by more top-end talent.

Kunin is questionable for Friday due to an “upper-body” injury.

Kunin left Thursday’s game with an upper-body injury but head coach Bruce Boudreau added that he was “a little woozy,” which suggests that it is a head-related injury. If Kunin can’t play, Joel Eriksson Ek will likely move to the second line and Jordan Greenway will likely shift to centre on the third line.

Kunin will undergo surgery to repair a torn ACL; will be sidelined for 6-8 months.

Kunin tore his ACL in Sunday’s game against the Red Wings and his season is over. This is a tough break for the former first-round pick (No.15 overall in 2016) who appeared to have earned a role with the Wild down the stretch after picking up 19 points (10G / 9A) in 36 games with Iowa (AHL).
