The New York Islanders have reportedly acquired Thomas Vanek from the Buffalo Sabres in return for Matt Moulson, a first-round pick in 2014 and a second-rounder in 2015.

Whoa.

Acting as Buffalo’s co-captain this season, Vanek managed to pot four goals and five assists in 13 games this season to go along with 597 total points in 598 career games. Moulson, on the other hand, has 233 career points in 334 contests, with nine of the points coming this season.

Both players are on expiring contracts, so it will be interesting to see whether Vanek or Moulson actually stick with their new clubs come July.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
