The Arizona Coyotes have acquired C Derek Stepan, and G Antti Raanta from the New York Rangers in exchange for D Anthony DeAngelo, and a 2017 1st Rounder.
Stepan (27) played in 81 games last year, and totaled 17G, and 38A for 55 points. During his 7-year NHL career, Derek Stepan has only scored more than 20 goals twice (in his rookie season, and during the 2015-16 campaign). Stepan carries a cap hit of $6.5 million for the next 4 years.
Antti Raanta (28) is going into next season on the last year of his contract with a cap hit of only $1 million. During the 2016-17 season Raanta played in 29 games, and managed a .922 Save Percentage, and a 2.27 GAA with #NYR. Due to his solid play, it is expected that Raanta may be playing for a starter position, and contingent on his play during the 2017-18 season, a nice raise.
DeAngelo (21) has played in only 39 NHL games with the Arizona Coyotes while hitting the back of the net 5 times, and adding 9 helpers for the Coyotes during the 2016-17 season. DeAngelo carries a cap hit of $963,333 until the end of the 2018-19 season.
Don't know if you would say Columbus Blue Jackets acquired or if you'd say the Chicago Blackhawks have acquired.. Here's how it shapes up:
Bowman believed he would not be able to re-sign Panarin similar reasoning that saw former teammate Niklas Hjarmalsson head out the door. Artemi has 2 years remaining at 6 mill per and based on his trend, will land a contract that will consist of more term and dollar.
Panarin posted 74 points (31g, 43a) in 82 games last season.
Packaged in the deal is prospect C Tyler Motte.
Motte posted 7 points (4g, 3a) in 4 games with the Hawks in 2016-17, but had a lackluster season stats wise with the Rockford IceHogs where he notched a mere 16 points (10g, 6a) in 43 games.
Part of the return to the Hawks is F Brandon Saad. Saad is coming off 3 back to back to back 50+ point seasons and finished last season with 53 points (24g, 29a) in 82 games.
The last part of this deal (draft picks aside) was the Hawks acqusition of 2011 draft pick Anton Forsberg.
It was no surprise Chicago needed a backup goaltender after they moved Scott Darling to Carolina earlier this spring.
Forsberg play majority of the season with the Monster where he posted a 2.28 save percentage, a .926 GAA and finished with a 27-17-2 record.
This was a win/win of a deal in that Chicago receives a solid backup and reunites Toews and Saad, and the Blue Jackets get thier game-breaking forward. #NHL#CBJ#Blackhawks
