This one may be more of a fringe trade, but later on Friday night, not long after the opening round of the Entry Draft, the Anaheim Ducks off-loaded a little bit of fringe hockey pool talent to the New Jersey Devils, who were in need of a bit more depth. The Devils acquiring forward Kyle Palmieri for the #41st overall pick, it will be interesting to see where the New York native fits with the Devils.
|To New Jersey||POS||Age||G/W||P||Cap|
|Kyle Palmieri||F||24||14||29||$1.5 mil|
|2015 2nd Round Draft Pick, #41 Overall|
Palmieri ranked 196th among all forwards in scoring last season and currently 154th among those with contracts for next season. He'll surely fall down that list, but he gets a fringe benefit mention in this deal.
