Shattenkirk to the Caps dammit
This really could put the Washington Capitals over the top. Kevin Shattenkirk is one of the best players in hockey and now he is in the mix of the NHL best 89 points. The Blues got Zach Sanford, a 17 first round pick and a future 2nd round pick.
The conditional 2nd round pick could be as low as a 7th depending on if Keven resigns with Washington or a whole bunch of other factors based on his play. St. Louis is still on the hook for 39% of what is left of his $5.2 mill salary.
Shaaaaaattttini!!!!!!! Welcome to D.C. buddy. Excited to be back together!!! @shattdeuces

What a ridiculous trade before the deadline. Kevin who is hitting his prime at 28 is a top defensive player. I’d rank him right up there with Seabrook but Shattenkirk is doing a little bit better on offense this year.
Being from Pittsburgh this is a oh crap moment when I saw this trade. It will make it even more sweet when we beat them again in the playoffs.
PS: It goes without saying he has the coolest name in all of sports. It might only be behind Kobe Buffalomeat.
