Sabres acquire Wayne Simmonds

The Buffalo Sabres have made their first trade of the day, and they have acquired Wayne Simmonds from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for a conditional 5th round pick in 2021.

The pick can be upgraded to a 4th round pick if Buffalo makes the playoffs and Simmonds plays in 10 games.

Simmonds has eight goals and 24 points in 61 games this season. He is on an expiring contract and will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.
