Arizona Coyotes have acquired defencemen Anton Strålman and Vladislav Kolyachonok from the Florida Panthers

The Arizona Coyotes have acquired defencemen Anton Strålman, Vladislav Kolyachonok, and a 2024 2nd round pick from the Florida Panthers in exchange for a 2023 7th round pick.

Stralman, who turns 35 next week, had one more year on the three-year contract he signed as part of Florida’s free agent Class of 2019.

Florida Panthers GM Bill Zito freed up some much-needed salary cap space on Monday as veteran defenseman Anton Stralman was traded to Arizona.

Stralman, who turns 35 next week, had one more year on the three-year contract he signed as part of Florida’s free agent Class of 2019.

With free agency coming Wednesday at noon, Zito need to move some salary to make some additions — perhaps defenseman Ryan Suter.

After signing Sam Bennett to a four-year contract on Monday, the Panthers were only left with around $5.4 million remaining under the cap and that is without signing newly acquired forward Sam Reinhart who would probably eat right through that.

By trading Stralman to the Coyotes, the Panthers are now closer to $11 million in cap room.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
