Follow along with what is going to be a crazy Day 2 of the 2019 NHL Entry Draft.
The second day hasn’t even started yet and we already have a blockbuster trade.
PK Subban will he heading to NJ for Santini, prospect Davies and two second round picks. No salary retained by NSH.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) June 22, 2019
That’s a terrible return for the Predators, but I guess it solidifies their desire to bring in Matt Duchene this summer. If that’s all you can get for a hihg-end RD, the Avalanche had better hold on to Tyson Barrie.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have also cleared a ton of cap space by trading Patrick Marleau to Carolina. The Hurricanes are set to buy him out so he can go back to the Sharks.
.@SportChek Player Alert: The @MapleLeafs have acquired a 2020 sixth-round pick from Carolina in exchange for Patrick Marleau, a conditional first round pick (2020) and a seventh round pick (2020).— Toronto Maple Leafs (@MapleLeafs) June 22, 2019

The Leafs have also agreed to an extension with Kasperi Kapanan
TOR, more or less, has an agreement in place with Kasperi Kapanen on an extension. Not expected to be formalized until TOR cap (Marner) situation clarified. It will be a 3 year deal with an AAV in the $3.2M to $3.4M range.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) June 22, 2019
Not done just yet but VAN working on a deal to get J.T. Miller from TB. Draft picks likely to go the other way.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) June 22, 2019
Avalanche take Bowan Byram at 4

Avs go WAY off the board with the 63rd pick by selecting Matthew Stienburg
Avalanche take Sasha Mutala in the fifth round. Good skills, needs time
