Nashville sent defenceman Victor Bartley to Arizona for defenceman Stefan Elliott, which was a precursor to another trade involving the Coyotes and Montreal Canadiens.
Elliott, 24, spent parts of five seasons with the Colorado Avalanche before he was traded to the Coyotes for Brandon Gormley. With the Coyotes, Elliott scored six points in 19 games.
Bartley, 27, has spent five seasons in the Nashville organization and played 112 games with the NHL team. He scored one goal and 23 points in that time.
Bartley was then shipped to Montreal as part of another trade.
