The Winnipeg Jets acquired winger Tyler Toffoli from the New Jersey Devils for a third-round draft pick in 2024 and a second-round draft pick in 2025.

What does it give the Winnipeg Jets
The Jets have excellent scoring depth, so adding Toffoli makes them even more dangerous down the stretch. Toffoli is a Stanley Cup winner and a proven goal-scoring winger, so he could make a big impact in Winnipeg. Toffoli is a pending UFA this summer, so this looks like a rental situation.

What does it give the New Jersey Devils
The Devils were expected to be buyers at this year's deadline, but things have gone awry. So, they decided to trade pending UFA Toffoli for draft pick compensation. This might be a tough pill to swallow for Devils fans, but the reality of the situation necessitated this move at this time.

Fantasy impact
Toffoli should remain a solid producer in Winnipeg, but perhaps not as prolific as he could have been had he remained with New Jersey. Keep him for those who already have him, but there is no need to trade for him if the price is not right.
