Let’s Make a Deal! Braydon Coburn Headed to Islanders After Late Night Deal with Ottawa



Braydon Coburn

The New York Islanders added some depth on the blue line Sunday night when they added Braydon Coburn to their roster in a late-night deal with the Ottawa Senators.

In exchange, the Islanders are sending a seventh-round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft. The trade was announced after the Islanders defeated the New York Rangers 3-2 in overtime.

The left-handed defenseman has appeared in 16 games this season in Ottawa and has two points (two assists) in that span. Coburn was a member of the Stanley Cup-winning Tampa Bay Lightning last season.

The addition of Braydon Coburn gives the Islanders some added depth on the blue line without costing the team too much.

Coburn is in the second year of a two-year deal and was on their taxi squad. While his deal does come with a $1.7 million cap hit, because Coburn was on the taxi squad the Islanders will only get hit with a $625,000 cap hit instead, according to PuckPedia.

The New York Islanders still have $1.55 million in cap space available to them.
