Kassian trade highlights busy trade deadline for Avs

The Colorado Avalanche shook up its roster and the league in late February with one of the biggest trades in franchise history. Nine players and a draft pick changed hands in the megadeal with the Dallas Stars.

Going to the Stars are defensive forward Zack Kassian, goalies Thatcher Demko and Colten Ellis, and centre Jack Roslovic.

In return, the Avs get defenceman Brent Seabrook, goalies Alex Nedeljkovic and Matt Tompkins, forward Taylor Raddysh, defence prospect Daniil Misyul and a fourth-round pick in 2022.

Kassian and Seabrook are certainly the cornerstones of the trade, but there is much more to it on both sides.

Kassian, 30, has been a staple on the Avs' third line the last three years. The left winger has struggled mightily on offence in 2020-21 though with just seven points in 51 games. He has one year left on a contract that pays him a massive $6.8 million.

"Defensive forwards are key to winning, but we're doing an awful lot of losing. Kassian just wasn't making enough of an impact for being the highest-paid forward on the roster," said GM Josh Lewis. "We're happy to get a boatload in return for him while making the salaries work for Dallas. With a change of scenery he could have a huge impact in the playoffs."
