Blockbuster Trade: Hossa for Heatley

The Ottawa Senators and Atlanta Thrashers are set to announce a blockbuster trade involving Marian Hossa & a top 4 defenseman for Dany Heatley and a first round draft pick next year. The core of the deal is confirmed however the defenseman and draft pick are still unconfirmed.

Earlier today Ottawa re-signed Hossa to a three year $18m deal. Heatley is currently a restricted free agent.

More information as it comes...


It appears the defenseman heading out of Ottawa is Greg DeVries. DeVries was making too much for Ottawa and Atlanta picks up a very solid veteran. This is starting to look like a pretty good trade for both teams.

Heatley has signed a three year $13.5m deal.

There is no draft pick involved in the trade.
