July 6th, 2015: Anders Nilsson, goaltender, traded to the Edmonton Oilers for Liam Coughlin

Initial Reaction: Nilsson’s rights were traded to the Blackhawks from the Islanders in the Nick Leddy deal. Nilsson was currently playing in the KHL. Coughlin is a center/left wing prospect in college.

Current Assessment: The Blackhawks traded a guy who was never going to play for them for a forward prospect. Nilsson is the backup for the Edmonton Oilers. He has appeared in 22 games and amassed a 2.91 goals-against average. Coughlin is currently playing for the University of Vermont. He has 1 goal and 7 assists in 19 games.

Current grade: N/A
