Claesson to Tampa Bay

The Tampa Bay Lightning acquired defenceman Frederik Claesson from the San Jose Sharks for goaltender Magnus Chrona.

What does it give the Tampa Bay Lightning
The Lightning get a little more defensive depth with Claesson, although he is unlikely to get into the lineup when the team is healthy from the back end.

What does it give the San Jose Sharks
Chrona is a solid goaltending prospect, so this is a great deal for the Sharks. He has played the last two years at the University of Denver and may turn pro.

Fantasy impact
There is no clear goaltender of the future in San Jose, so Chrona now has far more keeper value than had he remained with the Lightning (who boast the NHL's best netminder in Andrei Vasilevskiy). As for Claesson, he has no fantasy value to speak of.
