The Arizona Coyotes announced on Saturday that they had made a deal. The team said in a press release, “We have acquired forward Andrew Ladd, a 2021 second-round pick, a conditional second-round pick for 2022 and a conditional third-round pick for 2023 from the New York Islanders.
TRADE: We acquired a second-round pick in 2021, a conditional second-round pick in 2022, and a conditional third-round pick in 2023 from New York Islanders forward Andrew Ladd. https://t.co/YrfSSEOp9i
Interestingly, the Islanders have confirmed that there is no return in the Andrew Ladd trade, only Ladd and the three picks to the Coyotes. This was obviously a cap dump move that would give General Manager Lou Lamoriello the opportunity to do other things and rid the Islanders of Ladd’s $ 5.5 million cap hit. Essentially, the Coyotes were given three tips for accepting Andrew Ladd’s contract.
This has been one of the stranger trades in a while, but it makes sense for both teams. The coyotes desperately need to stock up the closets with draft picks. The Islanders needed the canopy room. Conditions for the deal center around the 3rd rounder 2023, which goes to Arizona in the ladd trade: The 3rd round pick is carried over if Ladd plays in at least 1 game in the years 2022-23.
David Sportsnet’s Amber was the first to report the deal and also reports that the Coyotes expect the 35-year-old forward to play for them next season. He has spent the past three seasons with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers and has only played four NHL games since the middle of the 2018/19 season. Ladd was a big part of the Winnipeg Jets’ success years ago, getting his monster contract after a 46-point season split between the Jets and the Chicago Blackhawks in 2015-16.
