Winnipeg Jets Acquire Canadiens Center Sean Monahan Via Trade

The Jets announced a couple of days ago that they had acquired Sean Monahan from the Montreal Canadiens. The team gave up a 1st round pick in 2024 and a conditional 3rd round pick in 2027 for the veteran centerman.

However, as the Jets did not give up any roster players in the trade, the team was forced to make a corresponding move from within. Today, that move was made obvious.
