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.

Fantasy impact
There is no fantasy impact here, as Larsson will play a depth role in Washington.
