A Couple Minor Trades Highlight Trade Deadline Eve

On trade deadline eve, two trades have gone down that involve minor league players.

First, the Edmonton Oilers have sent prospect Cody Wild to the Boston Bruins in exchange for Matt Marquardt. Wild has spent most of this season with the Springfield Falcons but most recently was sent to the Stockton Thunder of the ECHL. Marquardt has spent the whole season in Providence.

Our Oilers site, Copper and Blue, had this to say about the Wild deal:

So, Wild is gone to Boston and Taylor Chorney will be groomed for the rest of the season to replace the recently-departed Denis Grebeshkov. a move that makes sense, I guess, given Chorney’s struggles with the professional game at the AHL level. Send out two defensemen who seem to be getting it to make way for the one that’s not is…to quote the great Harry Doyle: “Christ, I can’t find it. To hell with it!”

The second deal of the night saw the Chicago Blackhawks getting Nick Boynton from the Anaheim Ducks for future considerations. Boynton has played 42 games this season for Anaheim, but has already been assigned to the AHL.
