Has a player ever been traded to a team they were playing against during a game?

I thought I remember hearing that this has happened before. If it has, did the player play against their former team in that same game?

It happened, in a way, in the NBA. In the 1978-79 season, the Nets and 76ers replayed the final 18 minutes of a game because of a referee error. The Nets and 76ers pulled off a trade between the original game and the replay, so Harvey Catchings, Eric Money, and Ralph Simpson played for both teams in the same game.

Money scored 37 points in the original game. The protest and replay wiped out 14 points, and then he scored 4 points for the 76ers in the replay, ending with 23 points for the Nets and 4 points for the Sixers.

Don't think it ever happened in hockey.

Edmonton Oilers traded Risto Siltanen to Hartford on the day they were playing against the Whalers. But it happened before the game. They just told him to go to the opponent's locker room.

The most appropriate question would be :

Was there ever a player, who was suspended, be traded to a team who was in the middle of a game while playing in another timezone, just so one of his suspension games would count?

If I remember right, Esa Tikkanen was traded the way that he just changed lockerrooms right before the game.

Anyone remember?

Ya, Edmonton traded him to the Rangers 4hrs before they were playing one another so thats' pretty darn close. I also vaguely remember reading stories of similar situations but I cant for the life of me remember the players names/teams... More recently Camalleri of Montreal was traded in between the 2nd & 3rd Periods of a game against Boston to Calgary for Rene' Bourque, and was pulled from the game; didnt play in the 3rd at all. A rather surreal experience for his line-mates & the team who I believe were either up or down 1-0 in a close game.

Yeah someone brought this up in another forum I go to in regards to the Camalleri trad, and I thought this would be a good place to ask.

Thanks for all the responses guys!

In the minors, Caputi was traded for Nicolas Deschamps when Syracuse was in town and he suited up against the Marlies the same day I think.

Not IN game, but Jim Dowd was traded from Chicago to Colorado within half an hour of game time or so, he switched dressing rooms and played that night against Chicago, recording an assist I believe.

Not in game but Glen Metropolit was picked up by Montreal from Philadelphia on the same day that the 2 teams were playing. Metropolit practiced with the Flyers that morning.

John Anderson was traded from Quebec to Hartford for Risto Siltanen during a Nordiques vs Whalers game in Hartford on March 8, 1986. I know John Anderson skipped over to the Whalers dressing room during the intermission, and I'm not 100% but I imagine Siltanen was playing too and headed on over to the Nordiques dressing room.

Wonder if they passed each other in the hall ?
