Dylan DeMelo was traded to the Winnipeg Jets by the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night in exchange for a third-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft.
The defenseman has 10 assists and is plus-3 in 49 games for the Senators which for a player in Ottawa to be a plus means he must be pretty decent. I thought DeMelo was a perfect fit for the Toronto Maple Leafs as a rental. A third-round pick is a good value pickup for the Jets and I expect him to do well there.
“DeMelo said, “I think Winnipeg chose me for what I can bring to the table. I feel like I was wanted for sure. I think it’s a great fit for myself and the team”
