Night Train Add Veteran Stastny

In Uncategorized on September 11, 2021 at 1:09 pm

It’s been a relatively quiet offseason, but with the 2021 Rookie Draft now only weeks away, the action is about to heat up. The Vancouver Night Train made their first pre-draft move of the year, acquiring veteran centre Paul Stastny from the expansion Clarington Coyotes, along with a fourth round pick, for their second rounder, 43rd overall.

Stastny, who scored 35 goals for the Farmington Fighting Saints last season, was one of the best offensive performers to be picked in the expansion draft. The veteran is likely in the twilight of his career, but the Night Train hope he can settle into a third line role or possibly play on a second line with Mat Barzal to shelter him from faceoff duties. The Coyotes, meanwhile, have no shortage of experience up front and need to build a solid prospect pool around them.
