Nagy to Dallas

From the Canadian Press today:
The Dallas Stars hope Ladislav Nagy can help put them over the top.

Dallas acquired the speedy winger on Monday from the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for a first-round draft pick and forward Mathias Tjarnqvist. "Ladislav brings speed and skill to our hockey club and has proven to be a top-six NHL forward over his career," said Stars GM Doug Armstrong. "We look for him to come in and make an immediate impact on our roster."

Nagy is slated to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. He became expendable after Coyotes GM Mike Barnett was unable to sign him to a long-term deal. He's earning US$3 million this season.

Haha, good luck, Dallas. This is the first season that Nagy hasn't had a long-term injury. Nagy is skilled no doubt, but a risk.
The Coyotes shed themselves of Nagy's impending raise and get a 1st rounder and Tjarnqvist out of the deal. Should help them in their rebuilding stage.
