Arizona Coyotes & Columbus Blue Jackets Complete Trade

The Arizona Coyotes and Columbus Blue Jackets have completed a trade which has some financial implications for the Coyotes. The deal sees Jakub Voracek and his $8.25 million cap hit for the rest of this season and next to the desert along with a '23 sixth-round pick, in exchange the Blue Jackets receive goaltender Jon Gillies. 

With Joonas Korpisalo moved and Jonathan Quick not showing up, Gillies could get a chance at some minutes down the stretch. Voracek isn't expected to play and his contract will help the Coyotes get to the salary cap floor
