Blue Jackets trade Adam Cracknell to St. Louis Blues in exchange for future considerations:

COLUMBUS, OHIO - The Columbus Blue Jackets have traded right wing Adam Cracknell to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for future considerations, club General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced today.

Cracknell, 29, recorded an assist and two penalty minutes in 17 games with the Blue Jackets and added 3-4-7 and two penalty minutes in 18 games with the American Hockey League’s Springfield Falcons this season after being claimed off waivers from the Los Angeles Kings on October 7. The Prince Albert, Saskatchewan native has appeared in 82 career NHL games with Columbus and St. Louis, registering 6-11-17 and 14 penalty minutes.

Selected by Calgary in the ninth round, 279th overall, in the 2004 NHL Draft, Cracknell has also appeared in 393 career American Hockey League games and collected 90-117-207 and 222 penalty minutes with the Quad City Flames, Peoria Rivermen, Chicago Wolves and Falcons. He was a Western Hockey League Second Team All-Star after picking up a career-high 42-51-93 and 85 penalty minutes in 72 games with the Kootenay Ice in 2005-06, the final of his four WHL seasons.

Someone explain exactly wtf future considerations means.

In the NHL this is a phrase that's always kinda confused me

Future considerations means they have likely agreed on a range of players or picks they are willing to give based on the future. ie re-signing, playing a certain number of games

Future considerations usually turns into a 7th round pick/D grade prospect. Usually there are multiple agreed upon conditions depending on the on the player's future (i.e. resign, ufa, playoffs, etc.) It can also mean nothing. Future considerations have yielded litrally nothing in return before. I read somewhere that "future considerations" was used at the draft to swap picks of the same round. Forgot who. It could also mean an unsigned prospect.

Long story short, future considerations can mean literally anything.
