The Columbus Blue Jackets and Winnipeg Jets made a low-level trade on Sunday, with Tomas Kubalik going to Winnipeg and Spencer Machacek becoming a part of Columbus’ organization.
At this point, you’re probably wondering: who are those guys? (It’s OK, just about anyone would.)
Here’s a quick lowdown on both.
Machacek looks like this. The Atlanta Thrashers/Jets drafted him in the third round (67th overall) in 2007. He’s played in 25 NHL games (two goals, nine points), including 13 with Winnipeg in 2011-12.
The Blue Jackets drafted Kubalik in 2008 (fifth round, 135th overall). He has played 12 games at the NHL level (one goals and four points), including eight last season.
