Eric Staal managed to represent Buffalo through the side.
Montreal Canadiens pushed a major acquisition in the NHL. Canadian veteran striker Eric Staal, 36, moves from Buffalo Sabers to Montreal.
In return, Buffalo received third- and fifth-round booking shifts for the next booking session.
In addition, Sabers will have to pay $ 1.625 million, or 50 percent of Stal’s salary, says NHL.com.
Canadian Staal is one of 29 in hockey history Three gold club member. He has thus won the Stanley Cup (in Carolina Hurricanes 2006), Olympic gold (Vancouver 2010) and World Cup gold (Russian 2007).
Staal began his NHL career in a Carolina shirt in the 2003-2004 season.
After 12 years of Hurricanes, the journey continued through the New York Rangers to Minnesota Wild. Last fall, Minnesota traded after four-season-represented Staal Buffalo in barter with Swedish striker Marcus Johanssoniin.
Move there must be quite a boost for Staal as Buffalo wrinkles in a creepy losing streak.
