Colorado involved in two trades

Reid Boucher is on the move to New York for our 5th round pick in 2018. Kevin to confirm. Thanks,

Kevin – NYI





Colorado moves Ryan Spooner to Winnipeg in exchange for their 4th round pick





Tampa – New Jersey trade….. Tampa,San Jose picks.

New Jersey trades this pick to Tampa Bay for Sam Bennett. Tim to confirm and make the pick. With that pick the Tampa Bay Lightning select Zach Hyman. 

Following the Tampa pick, San Jose had this announcement concerning their pick Josh Morrissey. As part of the conditions of his selection by the Sharks, and to honor the lead singer of the Smiths, Josh Morrissey is dropping his first name and goes by Morrissey.   He will also be sporting an Emo eurotrash haircut.

And for the toddlers who don’t know who the Smiths are, listen to “How soon is now?” on Youtube.

Colorado – Minnesota trade

There has been a deal struck between the Colorado Avalanche and the Minnesota Wild.
Alex Killorn is on his way to Minnesota in exchange for Niklas Hjalmarsson. 
The Avs are getting impatient with the development of their young d-men and need some immediate veteran leadership.   Killorn was considered expendable at this point as Ehlers, Rakell, Lee and Domi have all moved ahead of him on the depth chert at LW.
Dave to confirm from the Wild front office
