The Arizona Coyotes acquired center Emil Pettersson from the Nashville Predators for forward Laurent Dauphin and winger Adam Helewka.

What does it give the Arizona Coyotes
In Pettersson, the Coyotes land a 25-year-old Swedish center who has been a productive player at the AHL level. He is the older brother of Vancouver super-rookie Elias Pettersson. Given Arizona's injury woes this season, Pettersson could see NHL time before the end of 2018-19.

What does it give the Nashville Predators
The Predators get a pair of AHL forwards in the versatile Dauphin (who can play all three forward positions) and Helewka. Dauphin saw time in the NHL earlier this season, while Helewka has been fairly productive in the 'A' so far in '18-19. Both add depth.

Fantasy impact
None of Pettersson, Dauphin or Helewka are recommendable fantasy options at this point.
