The Tampa Bay Lightning have traded defenseman Slater Koekkoek and a 2019 fifth spherical choose to the Chicago Blackhawks for defenseman Jan Rutta and a 2019 seventh spherical choose.

The 24-year previous Koekkoek was drafted 10th total within the 1st spherical of the 2012 draft by the Lightning. He carries a $865,000 wage cap hit.

The 28-year previous Rutta was undrafted. He carries a $2.three million wage cap hit.

Some ideas from the media

Scott Powers: “Looks like one other constructive commerce for the Blackhawks. They moved up a pair draft rounds & can both re-sign Koekkoek or let him stroll after the season as a RFA. The Blackhawks have been consuming a few of Rutta’s contract in Rockford, however the cap house doesn’t matter this 12 months.”

Will Scouch: “Upgrading from Koekkoek to Rutta and never shedding a lot in the best way of draft worth is just not a foul transfer. Minor, however it’s one that would add up for a playoff run.”

Matt Larkin: “Koekkoek. Strome. Murphy. Perlini. Blackhawks cornering the market on 2011-15 first rounders who didn’t understand potential”
