LARSSON LEAVES ARIZONA FOR D.C.
The Washington Capitals acquired forward Johan Larsson from the Arizona Coyotes for a third-round draft pick in 2023.
What does it give the Washington Capitals
Larsson is currently injured but is an underrated defensive center and agitator, when healthy. He adds depth to a Capitals squad looking to get back to the Stanley Cup finals.
What does it give the Arizona Coyotes
Getting back a third-round pick for an injured depth forward seems like a win for Arizona. They already had several picks in the next three drafts, so this just adds to their flexibility.
There is no fantasy impact here, as Larsson will play a depth role in Washington.
