Major three-team deal alert: the NHL is on a roll

Published February 17, 2023 at 10:59 PM

A major transaction involving three teams has just been completed in the NHL, the Toronto Maple Leafs have acquired former Stanley Cup champion Ryan O'Reilly.

We have acquired Ryan O'Reilly & Noel Acciari in a three-team trade with St. Louis & Minnesota.

STL receives Mikhail Abramov & Adam Gaudette, TOR's 1st round pick in '23, OTT's 3rd round pick in '23 & TOR's 2nd round pick in '24. MIN receives TOR's 4th round pick in '25.

So in summary:

St. Louis retains 50% of O'Reilly's salary and Minnesota retains another 25% (of O'Reilly's salary).

This is what made the trade possible.

This is a major transaction and a very big move by Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas, who clearly wants to give his team every chance to win a playoff round this year.

More details will follow.
