The Arizona Coyotes have traded offensive defenceman Shayne Gostisbehere to the Carolina Hurricanes for a third-round pick in 2026.
Gostisbehere has rejuvenated his career over two seasons in the desert, scoring nine goals and 29 points in 50 games this season — after potting 51 points in 82 games the year prior.
Originally traded to the Coyotes by the Flyers in a salary-dump move — the Flyers had to attach a second-round pick to Gostisbehere for Arizona to take him — Gostisbehere now will be able to provide a playoff team with some more puck movement from the back end.
Gostisbehere, 29, is a nine-year NHL veteran who will be an unrestricted free agent this summer.
