The Columbus Blue Jackets have traded forward Tomas Kubalik to the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for forward Spencer Machacek.

Kubalik, a fifth-round pick by the Blue Jackets in the 2008 NHL Draft, has a goal and four points in 12 career National Hockey League games for Columbus over parts of the past two seasons.

Machacek, a third-round pick in 2007 by Atlanta, has two goals and nine points in 25 career NHL games for the Thrashers and Jets.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
