When was the last time a player in the NHL was signed only to be traded in the NHL? And how many times has the happened?

You could consider Marian Hossa at the beginning of this year.

Hossa is probably the best example since he was traded very soon after signing... at least Scatchard played with the Bruins before being traded so the team was probably wanting him to remain a Bruin when he signed the contract... same with the Amonte situation (in Phoenix).

Thornton too I guess. But Hossa is the best example he was signed and traded withen the same day.

Sign & Trades are virtually non existant in the NHL.

Unlike the NBA with it's boatload of salary cap exceptions, there is no reason/cap benefit to do a sign and trade in the NHL. All you will get is likely one pissed off player, and future UFAs very likely to NOT sign with you.

The Hossa signing is not really a good example, since Hossa was an RFA, not a UFA.

different situation, and you can't really compare as the CBAs are completely different when it comes to FA and how it affects individual team caps.

But sign&trades have been totally non-existant in the NHL in the old CBA because it made no sense or benefitted neither team to do it... in the new CBA we might see it a bit more - but you'll never see it with UFAs, because unlike the NBA, NHL UFAs have no advantage of signing with their current team first and then being moved - it doesn't affect team cap space at all.
