The Predators traded a few fan favorites on both the NHL and AHL levels today right at the NHL deadline.
Martin Erat ended up waiving his no trade clause and is headed to the Capitals along with Michael Latta. The Preds get hot shot prospect Filip Forsberg in exchange.
Latta ranks second on the Admirals in points with 34 and first in assists with 26 among active players this season.
In 122 career games as an Admiral, Latta scored 23 goals picked up 41 assists and compiled 286 penalty minutes.
During his time in Milwaukee, Latta endeared himself to Admirals fans with his knack for dropping the gloves to stand up for his team.
The 18-year old Forsberg was Washington’s 11th pick in the first round of the 2012 NHL draft.
So Roundtable, how shocked are you by the move? Do you think it’s the right move for Nashville? On the flip side, how excited are you to get Forsberg? What’s your favorite Latta memory?
