Newark, NJ – The New Jersey Devils have acquired Tyler Toffoli from the Calgary Flames in exchange for Yegor Sharangovich and a 2023 third-round pick. General manager Tom Fitzgerald flipped the third-round pick (80th overall) he received in the Damon Severson deal to acquire Toffoli.
Toffoli (31) is one of the many players that informed the Flames he preferred to be traded before the start of next season. The Scarborough, Ontario native is coming off a career year in which he scored 34 goals and 73 points. In his 11-year NHL career, Toffoli has scored 227 goals and 239 assists for 466 points.
Originally drafted by the Los Angeles Kings, Toffoli spent eight seasons in LA. In the 2013-14 season, Toffoli helped the Kings win the Stanley Cup. He scored seven goals and 14 points in 26 postseason games that year. In his career, Toffoli has been to the postseason seven times. In the 2021 postseason as a member of the Montreal Canadiens, Toffoli lost in the final to the Tampa Bay Lightning. He scored five goals and 14 points in 22 games.
The veteran forward has 88 games of playoff experience under his belt. In his seven postseason stints, Toffoli scored 18 goals and 44 points.
In addition to the Kings, Canadiens, and Flames, Toffoli played for the Vancouver Canucks in the 2019-20 season. Vancouver acquired Toffoli at the 2020 NHL Trade Deadline from the Kings for a large package going to LA.
Toffoli has one year remaining on his contract at a $4.25 million AAV. However, in real dollars, he’s only owed $3.5 million which made him even more appealing.
The Flames are getting Sharangovich following a three-season stint with the Devils. The former fifth-round selection and 141st overall pick in the 2018 NHL Draft totaled 53 goals and 53 assists for 106 points in 205 games with the Devils. He appeared in three postseason games, tallying no points.
