HAGG HEADS TO SOUTH FLORIDA
The Florida Panthers acquired defenseman Robert Hagg from the Buffalo Sabres for a sixth-round draft pick in 2022.
What does it give the Florida Panthers
The Panthers recently added Ben Chiarot to their blueline brigade but lost Aaron Ekblad to injury since then. Therefore, Hagg will provide added insurance and depth down the stretch.
What does it give the Buffalo Sabres
Hagg is likely to test the unrestricted free agent market this summer, so the Sabres did well to get back a sixth-rounder in this year's draft. Buffalo is likely not done selling off assets before the deadline.
There is no fantasy value here, as Hagg is a defensive defenseman. Pass.
