Sami Vatanen has been traded in spite of the fact that he is currently injured.

Sami Vatanen is on the move.


We have another trade to announce, this one coming in just before the 3:00 pm deadline. 

According to a report from Sportsnet's National Hockey League insider Elliotte Friedman the Carolina Hurricanes have just acquired veteran defenseman Sami Vatanen from the New Jersey Devils. At this time we do not know what the return for Vatanen will be, but what is interesting here is that Vatanen is currently dealing with an injury and has been traded in spite of that. 

Update: TSN NHL insider Bob McKenzie is reporting that it will be a pick and a prospect for Vatanen, although we still do not know the identity of those two pieces as of yet.
