NHL: Boston Bruins and Dallas Stars Pull Off 7-Player Trade

Jul 4 2013, 6:12pm CDT | by

The Boston Bruins and Dallas Stars pulled off a seven-player trade on Thursday that has Tyler Seguin going to Texas and Loui Erikkson heading north to Boston.

The Boston Bruins and Dallas Stars were involved in a seven-player trade on Thursday. 

According to Reuters via Yahoo! Sports, Boston included forwards Rich Peverley, Tyler Seguin and Ryan Button in the package. In return, Dallas will send forward Loui Eriksson and prospects Matt Fraser, Reilly Smith and defenseman Joe Morrow to the Bruins. 

Dallas Stars general manager Jim Nill said it was not an easy trade to make. 

"This is a big trade by both teams. It wasn't an easy trade for either party to make. We both gave up great players and great assets.

"We are talking some pretty good players here."

Eriksson figures to be the key part of the deal. He waived his no-trade clause to make the trade possible. He scored 12 goals in 48 games last season which tied him for the team lead. According to CBS Boston, Eriksson will play right wing for the Bruins per general manager Pete Chiarelli.  

"He's fast and a good two-way player. There's a lot of his game that fits into how we play."

Erikkson enters his eighth NHL season with the reputation of a potential 30-goal scorer. He established career-highs of 36 goals and 73 points in 2008-09 and 2010-11, respectively. He is also expected to replace Nathan Horton, an unrestricted free agent who is expected to sign with another team. 

Dallas coach Lindy Ruff says the trade will allow Seguin to play his natural center position, moving Jamie Benn back to wing. 

"We are looking at him someone who can play with Benn. It's a position we wanted to fill. It's a natural position for Tyler and he's looking forward to playing it."

According to ESPN, the trade gives Boston some salary cap space. Seguin's salary-cap hit through the 2018-19 season is worth $5.75 million while Peverly's amounts to $3.25 million annually through 2014-15. Erikkson's stands at $4.25 million through 2015-16.
