The Montreal Canadiens and Philadelphia Flyers hooked up for a trade on Monday.
With Montreal needing some defensive help, Marc Bergevin pulled a defenseman from the Flyers.
Erik Gustafsson is headed to Montreal.
He'll come over on a cheap trade as only a 2022 7th round pick will be going to Philly. The Flyers will also retain 50% of his salary.
Gustafsson hasn't really lived up to expectations after registering 60 points with the Blackhawks back in 2018-19.
More details to come.
