    News

    The Devils acquired Kuokkanen, Fredrik Claesson and a second-round pick from the Hurricanes for Sami Vatanen (leg) on Monday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

    Impact

    The Devils continue to take on prospects during their sell mode, and Kuokkanen is a player who could contribute soon. The 2016 second-round pick (43rd overall) is a good-sized forward (6-foot-1, 190 pounds), and he's been quite productive with AHL Charlotte this year, generating 42 points through 52 games. The 21-year-old may start out with AHL Binghamton, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the Devils afford him some games at the top level down the stretch.
