The Buffalo Sabres have acquired Jason Pominville, Marco Scandella, and a 2018 fourth-round pick from the Minnesota Wild in exchange for Tyler Ennis, Marcus Foligno, and a 2018 third-round selection.
Pominville is coming back to the team that drafted him in 2001. He had some superb seasons in Buffalo with his highlights being his 80-point campaign in 2007-08 and his 30-goal, 73-point showing in 2011-12. Unfortunately the 34-year-old (he'll turn 35 in November) has declined in recent years and is coming off a season where he was limited to 13 goals and 47 points in 78 contests. We'll see if a return to where his career started can rejuvenate him in the twilight of his playing days. Jun 30 - 12:02 PM
