The New Jersey Devils made the surprising move to trade a 3rd-round pick to get defenseman Jonas Siegenthaler from the Washington Capitals. It was an unexpected move as the Devils spent a draft pick at the same time they are looking to add draft capital. If you’re not watching the Washington Capitals on a daily basis, this name probably surprised you. However, fans seemed to wish he got a better chance.

Siegenthaler was a regular in the lineup until Peter Laviolette was hired.
