Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman continues to stockpile draft picks as the Red Wings send left wing Jakub Vrana to the St.Louis Blues for forward Dylan McLaughlin and a 2025 7th round pick. Detroit will be responsible for 50% of the $5.25 million cap hit through next season.
Vrana, has one goal and two points in five games this season for Detroit. He spent time away from the team earlier in the year in a NHL/NHLPA Players’ Assistance Program. While in Grand Rapids, he finished with 6 goals and 11 points.
McLaughlin, who has been playing in the minor leagues, was signed by the Blues last summer. It is highly probable that he will head to Grand Rapids.
