Capitals trade Niskanen to Flyers for Gudas

And today, with the just-concluded Stanley Cup Final still fresh in the minds of fans, Fletcher addressed his defense, trading Radko Gudas to the Washington Capitals for 32-year-old blueliner Matt Niskanen. Gudas, 29, has one year left on his contract and carries a cap hit of $3.35 million.

A physical presence on Philadelphia's blue line since the Flyers landed him in their 2015 Braydon Corbon trade with the Tampa Bay Lightning, Gudas exercised more discipline in 2018-19 en route to the Barry Ashbee Trophy as the team's top defenseman, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, finishing with the fifth-most hits in the National Hockey League. Vrana, 23, scored 24 goals and 23 assists in 82 games last season for the Capitals. "Matt is a consummate professional and was a big part of our success".

She then gave an ultimatum to the doctors, which ended without the protesters calling off their strike. However, the outpatient department and diagnostic services will largely remain suspended, he added.

Following their trade on Friday, the Capitals are expected to have $13.8 million (based on a projected $83 million salary cap) in cap space this summer with five restricted free agents on their roster.

"We feel this move provides us with financial flexibility as we look for additional ways to strengthen our team". Gudas, who was selected by Tampa Bay in the third round (66th overall) in the 2010 NHL Draft, ranks fourth in games played by a defenseman from that class. "Having played heavy minutes in all situations throughout his career, Matt will be a steadying influence to our talented and young group of defensemen".
