NHL CapHit: $4,875,000 Puckpedia Profile

The Hurricanes have acquired Sami Vatanen from the Devils for Janne Kuokkanen, Frederik Claesson and a conditional second-round draft pick.

Vatanen registered 40 points in 97 games over parts of two seasons with the Devils after being acquired from Anaheim in the Adam Henrique trade last season. Vatanen should provide some immediate relief to a Carolina blue-line that’s been plagued by injuries. He is set to become an unrestricted free-agent on July 1st.

Vatanen will make his Devils debut on Friday.

After being acquired for Adam Henrique, Joseph Blandisi and a third round pick on Thursday, Vatanen will immediately draw in on the top pair and top power play unit in Colorado tonight. Vatanen will take Steven Santini's spot with Andy Greene and will quarterback the top unit with Will Butcher. Vatanen has one goal, three assists and 22 shots on goal in 15 games this season.

The Devils have acquired Sami Vatanen and a conditional draft pick from the Ducks for Adam Henrique, Joseph Blandisi and a 2018 3rd round pick.

The Ducks have good D-depth but were extremely thin up front, so moving Vatanen helps balance things out for them. Vatanen, who missed the start of the season with a shoulder injury has picked up four points (1G / 3A) in 15 games. He will likely play a huge role on the Devils’ blueline, including likely anchoring their top power-play unit. He will no longer have to fight for PP time with Cam Fowler or Brandon Montour.
