It is NHL free agency day, which means that there are over 150 signings, trades and pieces of follow up from draft weekend to talk about. Let’s do that podcast!
The Minnesota Wild got the sliding Jesper Wallstedt with the Edmonton Oilers pick. Why didn’t the Oilers pick him? And yet, the Oilers didn’t make the worst choice in the draft. The Montreal Canadiens stepped in to steal that honor from them. Those moves aside, who were the winners and losers of the draft?
Leading up to free agency a number of trades happened, including:
– Marc-Andre Fleury being dealt for nothing
– Tyler Johnson being a salary dump to the Chicago Blackhawks
– Darcy Kuemper is traded to the Colorado Avalance mid-show
As nearly $800 million was handed out in free agency, we dive into the signings of:
– Philipp Grubauer and the rest of the goalies on the market
All this and more on episode 340 of the 4th Line Hockey Podcast!

About the Show
The 4th Line Podcast is a weekly hockey podcast hosted by Carl Landra and Nick Seguin. Every week they share their unique and fun take on what is happening in the world of hockey. While they don’t take themselves too seriously, they have a typical 4th line attitude: what they lack in finesse, they make up for in being willing to go to the corners and work hard to get the job done.
