Free Agent

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 (lower-body) was placed on IR retroactive to November 15th.

Vatanen missed Sunday’s game in Carolina and his move to IR means that he will miss at least one more game (Tuesday vs. the Canadiens). The Devils defenseman will be eligible to come off of IR on Thursday (vs. the Islanders) but there is no timetable for his return at this time.
