Always weird to see a player on a NHL contract traded for someone who only has a AHL contract.

The only time I recall this happening was last year when Chicago traded Brandon Segal to Tampa Bay for future considerations (those considerations were Matt Fornataro who had an AHL only contract).

Anyway, this deal between Washington and Chicago looks kinda pointless since both players seems really similar. The only advantage is that it clears a contract spot for Chicago. They are currently at 47 contracts (that's if Saad counts)
