Two veterans departed the sole NHL teams they’ve played , as the Colorado Avalanche obtained forward Nazem Kadri on Monday in a deal that sent defenseman Tyson Barrie into the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Colorado also picked up a 2020 draft pick and defenseman Calle Rosen in the bargain. Toronto also got forward Alex Kerfoot and a 2020 sixth-round selection. Additionally the Avalanche are retaining half of the 5.5 million cap hit on the last period of Barrie’s contract.
Kadri carries a cap hit of $4.5 million throughout each of the next three seasons as a piece of a six-year, $27 million deal he signed April 2016, based on capfriendly.com.
Kadri, 28, played 10 seasons in Toronto, compiling 161 aims and 196 aids in 561 games.
“Nazem is a proven goal scorer and a fierce competitor who plays in most scenarios,” Avalanche general manager Joe Sakic said in a statement. “He is under contract for another three seasons and will immediately fit right in as our second-line center and enhance our scoring thickness.
Last seasonhe produced 16 goals and 28 assists in 73 games. But he was suspended for the rest of the first round of the playoffs after cross-checking the Boston Bruins’ Jake DeBrusk through Game 2. Toronto ended up being eliminated in Game 7 of the series.
It was the spring in a row where Kadri was suspended during the postseason. Back in April 2018, Kadri obtained a three-game ban for dressing Boston’s Tommy Wingels in Game 1 of a first-round series. As with the year, the Maple Leafs lost to the Bruins in seven matches.
27, barrie, spent eight seasons with the Avalanche, setting 75 goals and 232 assists up. He had 45 assists and 14 goals in 78 games last season.
“We want to thank Tyson for he has performed both on and off the ice to the Avalanche business,” Sakic said. “He certainly made an impact not just with his drama but with his charitable work from the area community. …
“With the arrival and development of Samuel Girard and Cale Makar, as well as the recent draft selection of Bowen Byram, we believed it was time to move in this course with Tyson’s contract expiring next summer.”
Kerfoot, 24, has played 157 NHL games, all in the past two seasons with the Avalanche. He had 19 goals and 24 assists as a rookie in 2017-18, then 15 goals and 27 assists in 2018-19.
