The Arizona Coyotes have acquired Curtis Douglas in a trade with the Toronto Maple Leafs. In exchange, the Maple Leafs received Conor Timmins.
This is a trade of minor-league prospects. Timmins does; however, have NHL experience.
Timmins was acquired by the Coyotes in a July 2021 trade with the Colorado Avalanche. Arizona also added a 2022 first-round draft pick and a 2024 conditional third-round draft pick.
In exchange, the Avalanche added Darcy Kuemper.
The 24-year-old Timmins appeared in just six games with the Coyotes before being shut down for the season with an injury. This season, he appeared in two games with the Coyotes.
He also played in six games with the Tucson Roadrunners. He was scheduled to return to the Coyotes before this trade.
Arizona wanted to send him back to the Roadrunners for additional time. However, he refused to accept that assignment.
Timmins — who was the 32nd overall pick in the second round of the 2017 NHL Draft — has appeared in 41 NHL games with the Avalanche and the Coyotes. He had seven assists.
Douglas has not reached past the American Hockey League level. Before this trade, he appeared in 13 games with the Toronto Marlies.
He had one assist with the team. The 22-year-old was the 106th overall pick in the fourth round of the 2018 NHL Draft.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
