New York Islanders
Braydon Coburn Brings ‘Character, Size and Strength’ to Islanders Blue Line | NYHN+
It was a pretty uneventful day in New York Islanders country, but general manager Lou Lamoriello was able to bolster the team’s defense well in advance of Monday’s trade deadline.
The Islanders added veteran defenseman Braydon Coburn in a late-night deal just after they had defeated the New York Rangers 3-2 in overtime. A seventh-round pick in next year’s draft was sent to Ottawa as part of the trade.
The trade — the Islanders’ only other move before Monday’s deadline — wasn’t a flashy one but brought in a player that Lamoriello felt has plenty of experience.
