Reports Bruins acquire Marcus Johansson from Devils

National Hockey League trade deadline, bringing back a second-round pick in the 2019 draft and a fourth-round pick in 2020.

The interest in Toffoli makes sense given that he's signed through next season for a reasonable $4.6 million cap hit, so the Bruins would get much more bang for their buck if they do end up spending big in trade assets.

The Devils acquired Johansson for second- and third-round draft picks after he put up career highs of 24 goals and 58 points in 82 games for the Capitals in 2016-17.

James DeGale to consider future after points loss to Chris Eubank Jr
Eubank followed up and forced a count at the end of the round, though DeGale complained that he was hit on the back of the head. DeGale, 33, will be left considering his future after being dogged by shoulder, groin and Achilles problems in recent years.

So now Johansson is teammates with Brad Marchand, who nailed him with a dirty elbow-to-the-head in January 2018, giving Johansson a concussion that would force him to miss 28 games and earning Marchand a tepid five-game suspension.

"We have all seen first-hand the way Marcus has been a positive veteran influence on our young forwards", Devils general manager Ray Shero said. "We wish him, his wife, Amelia, and daughter, Mila all the best in Boston".

The Bruins are now second in the Atlantic Division, while New Jersey is out of a playoff spot after a surprising run to the postseason previous year. They traded goalie Keith Kinkaid to the Columbus Blue Jackets earlier Monday for a fifth-round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft.
