Default Koekkoek on the Move

The Lightning traded former No. 10 overall pick Slater Koekkoek and a 2019 fifth round pick to Chicago Friday for defenseman Jan Rutta and a 2019 seventh rounder.

Rutta, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound right-handed defenseman, has two goals and four assists in 23 games with Chicago this season. He recently passed through waivers to go to AHL Rockford, where he has has a goal and three assists in eight games.

AHL eligibility (without waivers) is the key to the trade as the Lightning maintain their defensive depth while gaining flexibility with their NHL roster. Tampa Bay has had an 8-man rotation on the blueline up until a week ago when Koekkoek was allowed to play in the AHL on a conditioning stint.
