by Tom Gulitti @TomGulittiNHL / NHL.com Staff Writer

With training camps set to begin on July 13 as part of Phase 3 of the NHL Return to Play Plan, NHL.com is taking a closer look at key storylines for each of the 24 teams in the Stanley Cup Qualifiers. 

The qualifiers will start on Aug. 1 with the top four teams in each conference, based on points percentage, playing a three-game round-robin, and the No. 5-12 seeds playing in eight best-of-5 series. The winners of those series will advance to the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs against the four teams from the round-robin.

Today, we look at 12 players (listed alphabetically) from the Eastern Conference who were traded before the Feb. 24 NHL Trade Deadline and had limited time with their new team before the season was paused on March 12 due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus.
