NHL Trade: Boston Bruins Trade Tyler Seguin, Rich Peverley To Dallas Stars For Loui Eriksson, Prospects
The Boston Bruins and Dallas Stars reportedly have agreed to a seven-player trade Thursday. The Bruins reportedly would send forward Tyler Seguin, veteran Rich Peverley and defenseman Ryan Button to the Stars for forward Loui Eriksson and three prospects (Joseph Morrow, Reilly Smith and Matt Fraser).
Seguin, 21, was the second pick in the 2010 NHL Draft. He has 56 goals and 121 points in 203 career games, including 29 goals and 67 points in 2011-12 and 16 goals and 32 points in 48 games in 2012-13. He had one goal in 22 Stanley Cup Playoff games in 2013, but was second on the Bruins with 70 shots on goal.
Eriksson, who turns 28 this month, had 12 goals and 29 points in 48 games for the Stars in 2012-13. He appeared in the 2011 NHL All-Star Game and is considered one of the most underrated players in the League. He had at least 26 goals and 71 points in each of the previous three seasons and is considered one of the top defensive wings in the NHL.
Seguin is set to begin a six-year contract in 2013-14 that has an average annual value of $5.75 million. Eriksson has three years remaining on a deal that counts $4.25 million per season against the salary cap.
Peverley, who turns 31 Monday, had six goals and 18 points in 47 games during the 2012-13 season. He had two goals and no assists in 21 playoff games.
