Mr. Jones say "we all wanna be big, big stars"

Colonials shores up it's goaltending situation!

A text from Don early this morning which said “Hey trochet, what you looking for, I got extra dman” was how the whole deal started according to GM Graves. It took about 1/2 hour to cross the t’s and dot the lower case j’s, but the Colonials got a solid starting goaltender with term into the fold.

Martin Jones, Karl Alzner, Alexander Burmistrov and a 2nd round pick in 2018 were heading to the Colonials for Vincent Trocheck, Curtis McElhinney, BOS 3rd 2019 and BOS 1st 2020.

Trocheck had 6 goals and 3 assists in 8 games played, tied with Ryan Kesler in team scoring.

It is expected that Nathan MacKinnon will slide into the #2 center role, a position he is more comfortable with.

With the acquisition of Alzner, Marc Methot became expendable and was quickly flipped along with a pick (HAV 5th 2018) to the rival Havana Revoluton for BOS 4th 2018 and HAV 3rd 2018. Methot will be a UFA next year so the deal worked for both clubs.
