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.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.

— Panthers vice president of hockey operations Travis Viola after Florida won the No. 1 pick in the NHL Draft Lottery
