The Tampa Bay Lightning swung a pair of trades in the early hours of Monday's trade-deadline day, acquiring defenseman Braydon Coburn from the Philadelphia Flyers and sending forward Brett Connolly to the Boston Bruins.
The Lightning gave up defenseman Radko Gudas and their 2015 first- and third-round draft picks in exchange for Coburn, while acquiring a second-round pick in 2015 and another in 2016 in the Connolly deal.
Coburn, 30, led the Flyers this season in average shifts per game at 27.9 and was third among Philly defensemen in average ice time at 20:14. In addition, he had one goal, eight assists and 16 penalty minutes.
He has totaled 37 goals and 129 assists over his 10-year career with the Flyers and Atlanta Thrashers. He was drafted eighth overall by Atlanta in 2003.
Gudas, 24, played in 31 games this season for Tampa Bay, totaling two goals, three assists and 34 penalty minutes, but has been out due to injury and is not expected back until the end of the regular season.
Connolly, 22, had 12 goals and three assists for the Lightning this season, his fourth in the NHL after being drafted sixth overall by Tampa Bay in 2010.
He has been having his most productive campaign so far, after totaling six goals and 11 assists in 84 games across his three previous seasons.
"Young player, can really shoot the puck," Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli told bostonbruins.com. "He's a player we kind of looked at for a while."
According to ESPN Stats & Info, Connolly's shooting percentage is 16.2 this season, which would rank first among Bruins skaters with at least 400 minutes of ice time this season. Brad Marchand is leading the Bruins with a 12.9 shooting percentage this season.
The 2015 first-round pick the Lightning surrendered in the Coburn deal is protected. If they receive the first overall pick, they instead will send the Flyers the New York Rangers' first-round pick, which they previously acquired.
