Today’s Game

Tampa Bay Lightning – New York Islanders 3:00 PM ET

Canadiens acquire a defenseman

Montreal Canadiens: The Montreal Canadiens have acquired pending free agent defenseman Joel Edmundson from the Carolina Hurricanes for a 2020 fifth-round pick.

  • Arpon Basu: “Edmundson made $3.1 million this year and $3 million the year before on consecutive one-year deals signed as an RFA. He is now a UFA. I don’t know what his expectations are, but if I’m the Canadiens, I’d be reluctant to give him much of a raise.”
  • Murray Pam: “Amazed #Habs/#Canes made a swap. Guess GM’s have short memories. Edmundson adds to a strong d-core. Alzner buyout may happen – also allows Romanov to play in Laval to get used to the North American game.”
Injured Stars, Islanders and Lightning

Stephen Whyno: Dallas Stars coach Rick Bowness didn’t have an update on forward Roope Hintz, who left in the first period with an injury.

Arthur Staple: New York Islanders coach Barry Trotz said that forward Casey Cizikas will be a game-time decision today.

Joe Smith: Tampa Bay Lightning forward Brayden Point practiced yesterday.
