Red Wings trade F Anthony Mantha to Capitals for big haul

Sharing is caring!

Wow! GM Steve Yzerman has pulled off a blockbuster trade right at the buzzer!

He’s traded underachieving forward Anthony Mantha to the Washington Capitals for a package that includes forwards Richard Panik, Jakub Vrana, and a 1st and 2nd round draft pick:

According to NHL Insider Pierre LeBrun, the 1st round draft pick is in 2021, with the 2nd round draft pick coming next year:

The trade was reported nearly a half hour after the NHL Trade Deadline passed at 3:00 PM EST, though several moves had yet to be confirmed.

After signing a four-year contract this past summer, Mantha has severely underwhelmed this season, having scored only 11 goals in 42 games.

Meanwhile, Panik comes to Detroit a veteran of over 500 NHL games, having scored three goals with six assists with the Capitals this season. Vrana brings Stanley Cup winning experience, having been a part of the 2018 Cup-winning Capitals team; he’s tallied 11 goals and 14 assists this season so far.
