The New York Islanders And New Jersey Devils Have Made A Trade

TRADE: The New York Islanders have acquired Tyce Thompson from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for Arnaud Durandeau.


Tyce Thompson




Tyce Thompson, a product of the esteemed Salisbury School, secured two New England Championships before extending his success at Providence College. The New Jersey Devils drafted Tyce in the 4th round (96th overall) during the 2019 NHL Entry Draft.


His collegiate journey concluded on March 24, 2021, as he wrapped up a successful junior season. Shortly after, Tyce signed his inaugural professional deal, earning a spot on the Devils' roster with a two-year, entry-level contract. Making his professional and NHL debut on April 6, he faced off against his brother, Tage, and notched his first career assist and point in a 5–3 match against the Buffalo Sabres.

Arnaud Durandeau



Durandeau initiated his junior career in 2015 with the Halifax Mooseheads in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL). The New York Islanders selected him in the sixth round, 165th overall, in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

After completing a four-year stint in major junior hockey within the QMJHL, Durandeau inked a three-year, entry-level contract with the Islanders on May 31, 2019.[2] During his inaugural professional season, he divided his time between the Islanders' affiliates, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League (AHL), and the Worcester Railers of the ECHL.


Heading into the 2022–23 season, Durandeau secured a two-year, two-way contract extension with the Islanders.[3] He received a call-up from the AHL and marked his NHL debut with the Islanders on February 20, 2023, in a game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
