Ottawa senators Quebec forward Cedric Pacquito, as well as defenseman Brydon Coburn and Tampa Bay received second round pick services in the 2022 draft on Sunday in the trade with lightning.
In return, the Florida team got their hands on striker Marian Gaboric and goalkeeper Anders Nilsson, the Ottawa company announced on its Twitter account.
Pacqueto spent his entire career lightning fast, selecting him in the fourth round of the 2012 draft (101st overall). The Gaspe native has 85 points from 377 career games, plus 956 to deliver hits. He also won the Stanley Cup with the Jon Cooper team last season.
For his part, Coburn has been on his fourth team since the beginning of his career. Drafted in the first round (8th overall) by the Atlanta Thrashers in 2003, he also wore the Philadelphia Flyers and Lightning colors.
By acquiring Gaboric, the Florida establishment will be able to put the attacker’s name on the wounded list, which will save money on payroll. The same fate awaits Nilsson.
