Oilers trade goaltender Devan Dubnyk to Predators for forward Matt Hendricks

EDMONTON - The Edmonton Oilers have traded goaltender Devan Dubnyk to the Nashville Predators for forward Matt Hendricks.

Dubnyk went in to the season as Edmonton's starter, but his struggles led to the Oilers signing free agent Ilya Bryzgalov. The 27-year-old is 11-7-2 with a 3.36 goals-against average and .894 save percentage.

Hendricks, 32, has two goals and two assists in 44 games this season. He signed with Nashville in the off-season.
