Isles Get Younger, Trade Captain Mark Streit to Nashville for Craig Smith


The New York Islanders have traded defenseman Mark Streit to the Nashville Predators in exchange for forward Craig Smith.

"We're extremely excited to announce the acquisition of Craig Smith. He's been a surprising young talent for the Predators that seems as though he was the odd man out. We're happy to acquire a very versatile player (plays RW, C) for our team who can use some of that now.

"We love Mark, and wish him the best in Nashville and hope he gets a Stanley Cup in the future. He was a great captain and we thank him for all he's done for the New York Islanders organization."


Also included in the deal are forward Johan Sundstrom going to Nashville, and defenseman Charles Olivier-Roussel heading to Long Island. Both will report to their respective AHL clubs.

"Charles is a very good offensive defenseman who was an integral part of a strong Saint John's team. We're happy to acquire him, especially since he has a right handed shot which this organization lacks. The fact that he's been playing in the ECHL doesn't bother us. Andrew MacDonald is a top-4 defenseman in our organization and he played significant time in the ECHL. We believe he can be an NHL player."

NYI LINE UP:
Matt Moulson - John Tavares - Brad Boyes
Josh Bailey - Frans Nielsen - Kyle Okposo
Michael Grabner - Keith Aucoin - Craig Smith
Matt Martin - Casey Cizikas - Colin McDonald
ex. Marty Reasoner
IR: David Ullstrom

Andrew MacDonald - Travis Hamonic
Thomas Hickey - Lubomir Visnovsky
Joe Finley - Matt Carkner
ex. Radek Martinek
IR: Brain Strait

Evgeni Nabokov
Kevin Poulin

Islanders are still looking for a top-4 defensive defenseman, Bailey/Okposo available. PM me.
