Trades Dominated Day Two of the 2019 NHL Draft

Vancouver – – It was a whirlwind day two at the 2019 NHL Entry Draft that was headlined by a couple of big trades.

Before the first pick was made, it was rumored that PK Subban was on the move but the destination was unknown. It was later revealed that a day after selecting Jack Hughes with the first overall selection that the New Jersey Devils were adding the defenceman.

It was later revealed that the Devils were the only team that was willing to take on the full contract of Subban, which was the main motivating factor behind the Predators making the move. For their troubles, the Devils surrendered 2 second round picks, Jeremy Davies, and Steven Santini.

It was a big weekend for the Devils after failing to make the playoffs this past season.

The host Canucks then made the much-anticipated splash by acquiring JT Miller from the Tampa Bay Lightning. They sent back the 71stoverall selection and a conditional 1stround based on if the Canucks make the playoffs next season. It was a big move for a team looking to take a big step forward behind their youth movement of Elias Pettersson, Brock Boeser, and Quinn Hughes.

After that, it was a bunch of teams moving up and down the draft boards with various picks trading hands throughout the day.

The most interesting deal of the day was, in fact, the first one to happen which saw the Carolina Hurricanes acquire Patrick Marleau, a conditional 2020 first round pick, and 2020 7thround pick for Carolina’s 2020 6thround pick. At first glance, it looks like a very lopsided deal but the Maple Leafs were wanting to get out from the burden of the Marleau contract and the Hurricanes were there to help them out at the cost of that pick.

The Hurricanes management will meet with Marleau in the coming days but all signs point to the Hurricanes buying out Marleau so that he can sign with another team, which is expected to be the San Jose Sharks.

Carolina was able to leverage their cap space to acquire an additional first-round pick.

They had a bunch of picks this weekend and appear to be armed a plethora of assets to use in the coming months as they look to take another step forward next season.

Here’s a listing of all the trades:

Toronto traded C Patrick Marleau, its 1st-round pick in the 2020 or 2021 NHL Draft and 7th-round pick in 2020 to Carolina for Carolina’s 6th-round pick in 2020. Should Toronto’s 1st-round pick in 2020 pick 1 through 10, Toronto will instead transfer its 1st-round pick in 2021.

Russ saw Davies at the Beanpot and filed this:

Jeremy Davies was the top pairing left defenseman and was engaged for the entire game. He showed that his shot was very accurate almost always hitting the net on the power play. He has some a lot of offensive upside for sure, scoring five goals and 22 points in 29 games heading into the tournament. He set up the game-winning OT goal for Tyler Madden in the first round of the Beanpot. He is a decent shot blocker and fearless for a 5-11 player. He has been a Hockey East first-team All-Star last season. He won Hockey East Player of the Month Award for February and he’s a Hobey Baker Candidate as a junior.
