Just got an update that the Bolts have moved Jeff Halpern to the Los Angeles Kings for forward Teddy Purcell and a 3rd round pick.
Let’s hope that Mike Smith turns into our goaltender of the future because the trade that sent Brad Richards to the Stars and landed us Jussi Jokinen (who we inexplicably put on waivers last year), Jeff Halpern and Mike Smith doesn’t look so good now. Smith and a 3rd round pick are all we have to show for that trade, and Richards is in the top 10 in the league in scoring.
Purcell hasn’t produced much at the NHL level, netting only 25 points in 91 games played. He has played in 41 games this season and totaled 6 points and a -1.
