TRADE: New Jersey Devils Acquire Tyler Toffoli from the Calgary Flames

The wild day in the NHL continues as the New Jersey Devils have made another trade, this time with the Calgary Flames. The Devils sent forward Yegor Sharangovich to the Flames in exchange for winger Tyler Toffoli. Calgary also receives a third-round pick in the deal.

Toffoli was one of the many Flames players who notified management they wanted out and wouldn't be signing a contract extension. Talks intensified in Nashville and there we have it, done deal. Sharangovich heads to Calgary after a season where he appeared 75 games, scoring 13 goals and collected 30 points. The 25-year-old is a versatile forward who can play any forward spot and is a restricted free agent.

Toffoli on the other hand had a huge season in Calgary, putting up 34 goals and 73 points in 82 games. He has one season left on his contract at $4.2 million and is a great gamble for the Devils. Low-risk, low term and a proven winner who has a Stanley Cup pedigree. A great compliment to the young group in Jersey, job well done by GM Tom Fitzgerald.

The third-round pick is 80th overall in what's a very deep draft this year. The Devils were busy on Tuesday as they completed a deal earlier in the day with the San Jose Sharks. Fitzgerald sent goaltender Mackenzie Blackwood to the Sharks for a sixth-round pick.

The Devils mean business, meanwhile Craig Conroy and the Flames are trying to hold it together at the seams and make moves that are win-now, but also set them up for future success. This could be a rare win-win trade. Both fan bases surely hope so.
