The Edmonton Oilers have moved Ryan Strome to the New York Rangers for Ryan Spooner. The trade is considered a change of scenery for both players.OFFICIAL: #NYR have acquired Ryan Strome from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Ryan Spooner.Strome Youth Christian Djoos Jersey , 25, has skated in 358 career NHL games over parts of six seasons with NYI and EDM, registering 59 goals and 103 assists for 162 points, along with 170 penalty minutes. pic.twitter.com/5m7IR8uD5b— New York Rangers (@NYRangers) November 16, 2018In Edmonton, Strome had only one goal and one assist in 18 games. He originally joined the Oilers in the summer of 2017 when Edmonton traded Jordan Eberle to the New York Islanders. The hope was the Strome would be a slightly less expensive version of Eberle, giving the Oilers some scoring in the top six and room on their salary cap as Connor McDavid became a very expensive superstar to keep. It didn't turn out that way as Strome had only 36 points in 100 games.advertisingSpooner was part of the Rick Nash trade that sent Nash to the Boston Bruins. A 40 point player in Boston, Spooner never quite put things together in New York and failed to grab a top-six role as a center, scoring only 18 points in 36 games.Peter Chiarelli, the Edmonton Oilers general manager originally drafted Spooner when he was with the Bruins and the lack of production coming from Strome made this trade an option Edmonton was willing to take. The Oilers must see a higher ceiling in Spooner and it may be that he has that considering he's had runs where he's scored at a much better clip than Strome 鈥?in 2017-18, Spooner scored 41 points in 59 games, good for .69 points per game on average.advertisingThe #Oilers have acquired forward Ryan Spooner from the New York Rangers in exchange for forward Ryan Strome. pic.twitter.com/IhY2vfv62G— Edmonton Oilers (@EdmontonOilers) November 16, 2018The New York Rangers have agreed to retain $900K in salary, making this an even trade in terms of salary cap hit to the team. The only difference is that Spooner has one more season after this one on his contract, making him an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2019-20 season. Strome, meanwhile http://www.officialcapitals.com/authentic-adidas-andre-burakovsky-jersey , is an RFA at the end of this year.The question will be if a change to scenery can get either player going offensively since both have struggled to open this year's NHL campaign.What This MeansBoth teams wanted to switch things up and the Rangers wanted to get out from a two-year commitment to Spooner. The Oilers, however, might try Spooner on the top-line wing spot and in a prime position on the power play where Spooner has an ability to get his offence going. Should he, the trade will look like a win for Edmonton.advertising DETROIT (AP) — The Anaheim Ducks dropped their heads on the bench and looked down at their skates, another defeat seemingly imminent.Gustav Nyquist broke a tie with 4:16 left and Darren Helm scored a little later, lifting the Detroit Red Wings over the Ducks 3-1 on Tuesday night to extend their franchise-record losing streak to 12 games.“I just see the frustration,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said.For the third straight setback, Anaheim went into the third period with a one-goal lead and failed to win.“This is a familiar story for us,” said Carlyle, recently given a vote of confidence by general manager Bob Murray. “We get a one-goal lead going into the third period and we just seem to be running right out of gas.”The Ducks’ losing streak is the NHL’s longest single-season skid since the Buffalo Sabres lost 14 games in a row four years ago.“We’ve had our meetings,” defenseman Jake Dotchin said. “I don’t know how many more we can really have, to be honest with you. We talk as players without the coaches. We talk with the coaches.”Anaheim’s challenge to regroup might include playing without forwards Jakob Silfverberg and Ryan Kesler. Silfverberg exited in the first period after his left leg got tangled up with Detroit defenseman Mike Green along the boards. The next period, Kesler also left the game with a lower-body injury.“It’s hard to be critical when you’re down to 10 forwards and we’re trying to survive,” Carlyle said.John Gibson stopped 22 shots for the Ducks, who haven’t won since Dec. 17. Prior to the skid, they had won nine of 10.Jimmy Howard finished with 23 saves for the Red Wings http://www.officialcapitals.com/authentic-adidas-evgeny-kuznetsov-jersey , who won two straight for the first time in more than a month.“It’s been a long time, so that feels nice, obviously,” Nyquist said. “I think we’ve been trending in the right direction for quite a while, to be honest with you, and not getting the wins. At the same time, it feels like we stand here talking about that and at some point, you’ve got to prove it. Hopefully, we can use these two wins and build on them.”Detroit tied it 5:25 into the third when Anthony Mantha scored from the right circle, shooting the puck after it bounced off a cross-ice pass from Andreas Athanasiou.Carlyle could not believe the good break the Red Wings got on the play, as the puck went right to Mantha’s stick blade.“It’s like, ‘Oh, my God,'” Carlyle said. “How can that just happen?”The Red Wings went ahead when Nyquist lifted his stick at the left side of the net and tipped in Danny DeKeyser’s shot from the slot. Helm’s goal with 2:33 remaining gave the Red Wings a two-goal cushion.Anaheim got off to a strong start but couldn’t sustain it, even against one of the NHL’s worst teams.“We need to create more chances, but it feels like we don’t have the confidence to beat the guy we are facing right now Jakub Vrana Jersey ,” said Rickard Rakell , who deflected a shot past Howard midway through the second period on a power play. “We’re playing too much on the outside, which makes us easy to defend, and we’re always in a defensive mode, waiting for a mistake.”NOTES: Ducks center Devin Shore, who had a game-high four hits, made his Anaheim debut after being acquired from the Dallas Stars for winger Andrew Cogliano. “He’s an NHL player, a smart player,” Carlyle said. “He knows his way around the rink and he makes some plays.” … Detroit scratched D Filip Hronek to make room for DeKeyser, who had been out since Dec. 4 with an upper-body injury. Hronek had a goal and four assists in his previous five games.UP NEXTDucks: Play at Minnesota on Thursday, the third stop on a five-game road trip.Red Wings: Play at Calgary on Friday night, starting an 11-game stretch with eight on the road.
