TAMPA BAY - The Tampa Bay Lightning have acquired forward Blake Coleman from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for forward Nolan Foote and Vancouver's first-round pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft (previously acquired by Tampa Bay), vice president and general manager Julien

Blake Coleman was traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning by the New Jersey Devils for forward prospect Nolan Foote and a first-round pick in the 2020 or 2021 NHL Draft on Sunday. Coleman , a 28-year-old forward, had 31 points (21 goals, 10 assists) in 57 games for the Devils this season.

Just a few hours after reports emerged that the New Jersey Devils had traded forward Blake Coleman to the Colorado Avalanche, the forward has officially been dealt -- however, not to Denver. TSN’s Darren Dreger was the first to report that Coleman has been traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning. Dreger adds that the return for New Jersey is a 2020 first-round pick and forward prospect Nolan Foote. The first-rounder will be the Vancouver Canucks’ pick acquired in the J.T. Miller trade, rather than the Bolts’ own selection.

What the Puck: Time has arrived for GM Bergevin to blow up Canadiens

  What the Puck: Time has arrived for GM Bergevin to blow up Canadiens I was walking down Sherbrooke St. in N.D.G. Monday morning when a pal yelled at me from his car on the other side of the street. “They gotta blow this team up,” he said. And he’s right. My friend, by the way, is one of those super-positive Montreal Canadiens fans who always manages to find a silver lining and if he can’t find one, that’s all you need to know about this utter failure of a season for the Habs. They are going to miss the playoffs again. That’ll make it three consecutive years and four of the last five.

At first glance, it is clear that the Lightning paid a hefty price in this exchange. Not only did Tampa give up a first-round pick, and the likely higher pick of the two they owned, but Foote was also their first-round selection just last year and the top forward in the pipeline. The big winger, who is the son of former NHLer Adam Foote and brother of Bolts prospect Cal Foote, already has pro size and is continually developing a next-level skill set and hockey IQ. Foote, the captain of the WHL’s Kelowna Rockets, has scored at more than a point-per-game pace this season and also added five points in seven games at the World Junior Championship. Foote looks ready to help an NHL team sooner rather than later, and the Devils will now be the club to reap that reward.

Trade grades: Devils make major strides, Bolts go all-in

  Trade grades: Devils make major strides, Bolts go all-in This has been a season full of changes for the New Jersey Devils. The team entered the year as a hopeful contender after a flurry of offseason moves, but it has been firmly situated near the bottom of the standings for most of the campaign. Head coach John Hynes and general manager Ray Shero, who both were with the team since 2015, were fired in December and January, respectively, and it appears the Devils are looking to build for the future with Tom Fitzgerald as GM.Approaching his first trade deadline, Fitzgerald made two big moves Sunday. Let's break them down from the perspective of each team involved.

However, the metrics of production versus pay may help to explain why Coleman commanded such a sizable cost and why he might be a crucial addition for the cap-strapped Lightning. Coleman is in the second year of a three-year, $5.4 million deal he signed with the Devils. That means he is making just $1.8 million against the cap this season and next. At that value, the 28-year-old has recorded 21 goals and 31 points through 57 games this season, his second 20-goal campaign in a row. Not only that, but Coleman is also an intelligent two-way player who brings physicality and poise with his defensive game. Coleman has been one of New Jersey’s best players this season, and his addition to a deep Lightning lineup makes for an embarrassment of riches in Tampa. After a shocking first-round sweep last season, the 2019 President’s Trophy winners are loading up in hopes of ensuring that such a collapse does not occur again.

3 takeaways from flurry of activity ahead of NHL trade deadline

  3 takeaways from flurry of activity ahead of NHL trade deadline Like clockwork, the hockey world asks itself the same question every February: Is this the year most notable trade chips change hands before TV networks begin their extensive NHL deadline-day coverage? Usually, as the deadline comes into focus, the answer is an emphatic "no." This year, however, a busy 48 hours have made "yes" a distinct possibility. Six trades were completed between Sunday evening and Tuesday afternoon, with a seventh trade - Kings defenseman Alec Martinez to Vegas - reportedly imminent.

TVA’s Renaud Lavoie, who had reported earlier Sunday that a Coleman deal to Colorado was done, maintains that the Avalanche as well as the Boston Bruins were in the running for the versatile forward until the end. It’s fair to assume that the cost of beating the Bolts’ offer likely proved to be too much for either squad. It will be interesting to see if either team circles back to New Jersey to discuss another term forward in Kyle Palmieri, or if that asking price – probably even higher – will be too much as well.

While Foote sticks out as the most impressive piece heading to the Devils, it is worth noting that New Jersey now has three first-round picks in June: their own, the Arizona Coyotes’ pick from the Taylor Hall trade and now Vancouver’s pick via Tampa. The Devils also added a second-round pick earlier in the day from the New York Islanders in exchange for veteran defenseman Andy Greene. With Palmieri possibly on the move and a Sami Vatanen even more likely to be dealt (Travis Zajac and Wayne Simmonds are also names on the rumor mill), the Devils are not done making moves and could land at least one more first-round pick before the trade deadline passes next week.

NHL teams get jump on deadline with flurry of early trades

  NHL teams get jump on deadline with flurry of early trades Tom Fitzgerald changed teams twice at the NHL trade deadline as a player and knows how it feels. As interim general manager of the New Jersey Devils, he didn’t wait until deadline day to trade captain Andy Greene or forward Blake Coleman. Beating the buzzer by more than a week, Fitzgerald recalled his own rough experiences of getting dealt late. “I wish I was traded a week and a half before so I could get adjusted a little bit quicker,” he said. Greene and Coleman are among more than a half-dozen players who are already adjusting to a new team because of an early trading flurry.

TAMPA, Fla. — Tyler Johnson and Ondrej Palat scored on the power play and Yanni Gourde added a short-handed goal as the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Calgary Flames 4-3 Saturday to snap a season-high four-game losing streak. Alex Killorn scored his 24th goal of the season to help the Lightning win for the first time since an 11-game winning streak. Andrei Vasilevskiy ended a three-game losing streak with 18 saves. “We knew coming into this game that we wanted to have a great effort and win that game,’’ Gourde said. “It felt really good to come out with the ‘W’ tonight.
