The New Jersey Devils on Thursday acquired defenseman Sami Vatanen and a conditional third-round draft pick from the Anaheim Ducks. Vatanen, 26, is currently in the second year of a four year, $19.5 million dollar contract ($4,8750,000 AAV).
The Devils have been in need of a right-handed shot from the point and Vatanen is poised to fill that role. Playing on the West Coast for the entirety of his career, Vatanen might be a relative unknown to Devils fans. Below, check out some of his best work for the Ducks and what you can expect to see from him as a Devil.
