What to expect from traded prospects
Prospects switched teams at the deadline. How will they fare on their new squads?
With Monday's trade deadline come and gone, it's time to discuss some of the most notable top NHL prospects or young players who switched hands in the days leading up to the deadline. Notes gathered on the prospects are based on my observations and discussions with scouts and front-office executives.
