[Trade] Ben Smith to SJ


Recommended Posts

Ben Smith apparently to SJ

Don't know the return, but Ben Smith to SJ.

In return for Ben Smith to San Jose, Chicago gets the Sharks' Andrew Desjardins #NHLTrade

@fearthefin he's a utility guy. Terrific penalty killer. Can eat some minutes on a checking line

Desjardins had half the cap hit (750K vs. 1.5mil). Gives Chicago a bit more wiggle-room.

That's pretty much it, and SJ retaining 50% of Desjardins' cap hit it allows the Hawks to keep Teravainen in Chicago. Smith was very good on the PK, but there are a lot of guys on the team that can fill that role. Desjardins brings a feistiness that the team didn't have.
