Devils trade forward Marcus Johansson to Bruins

Watch as Phil Kessel can't control the puck causing Marcus Johansson to take it and beat Matt Murray top corner.

The New Jersey Devils traded forward Marcus Johansson to the Boston Bruins Monday.

In exchange, the Devils are acquiring a second-round pick in 2019 and a fourth-round pick in 2020.

With the fourth-worst record in the NHL heading into Monday’s slate of games, the Devils are in sell mode and Johansson is the latest piece to fall.

The Devils sent backup goalie Keith Kinkaid to the Columbus Blue Jackets earlier in the day. On Saturday, they sent Ben Lovejoy to the Dallas Stars for fellow blueliner Connor Carrick and a 2019 third-round pick.

Johansson had spent the past two seasons with the Devils after being acquired from the Capitals in the summer of 2017 for a pair of draft picks.

The 28-year-old Swede has 12 goals and 27 points in 48 games played this season.
