BREAKING: Ducks trade D Sami Vatanen to Devils for forwards Adam Henrique, Joseph Blandisi, and a 2018 3rd round pick

The New Jersey Devils have acquired Ducks defenseman Sami Vatanen in exchange for forwards Adam Henrique, Joseph Blandisi and a conditional third-round pick. 

New Jersey Devils General Manager said in a team release: “In acquiring Sami, we bring in a right shot, top-four defenseman who can play in all situations. This move also gives us contract certainty on the back end for the next two plus years. When acquiring a defenseman like Vatanen, you have to give back quality assets or players in return.”   

So far this year Vatanen has 4 points in 15 games since returning from offseason shoulder surgery. Adam Henrique has 14 points in 24 games this year, while Joseph Blandisi has yet to suit up this year in the NHL.
