The Nashville Predators took part in Wednesday afternoon’s trade deadline action by trading a 2017 6th round pick to the New Jersey Devils in exchange for veteran forward P.A. Parenteau.
Parenteau, 33, was previously claimed on waivers by New Jersey from the New York Islanders in October and can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1st.
In 295 career NHL games with the Chicago Blackhawks, New York Rangers, New York Islanders, Colorado Avalanche, Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Maple Leafs and Devils, Parenteau has tallied 114 goals and 67 assists (181 points).
Through 59 games this season, he had 13-14-27 totals with New Jersey. Parenteau was originally drafted by the Anaheim Ducks in the ninth round (264th overall) of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.
New Jersey’s newly acquired 6th round pick in the 2017 draft is exactly that. No terms or conditions apply.
