Tyler Toffoli has been traded back to Canada!




We felt it was coming when the New Jersey Devils sit out forward Tyler Toffoli for trade reasons. On Friday, Darren Dreger announced that a trade was being completed to send the veteran forward to the Winnipeg Jets. 

Dreger believes the Devils are getting a 2025 round pick and 2024 thirs round selection from the Jets in the transaction.

Toffoli is a pending unrestricted free agent carrying a $4.25-million cap hit. The Devils have also retained 50 percent on his salary in trade to Winnipeg ($2.125 million). 

The Devils acquired him in the summer from the Calgary Flames with the hopes of making a deep playoff run, though it’s been quite the challenge for Jersey, who recently fired head coach Lindy Ruff. Toffoli still managed to find success with the Devils, putting up 26 goals and 18 assists in 61 games this season.

This is not the first time Toffoli gets traded during the season, he was a deadline pickup for the Vancouver Canucks in 2020 and the Flames in 2022. He’s suited up in 88 career playoff games and won the 2014 Stanley Cup with the Los Angeles Kings.

He was linked back to the Canucks, and even the Kings, along with getting interest from the Toronto Maple Leafs, though he will be coming to Canada to play for Winnipeg. This is the fourth Canadian team Toffoli will play for as he was also a member of the Montreal Canadiens from 2020 to 2022. 


After already acquiring Toffoli from New Jersey, the Jets have circled back to add defenseman Colin Miller later on Deadline Day.

According to Darren Dreger, a mid-round pick is what the Devils are getting in return.
