Hurricanes Trade Boucher to the Flyers, Acquire Westgarth From the Kings

USATSI_7831904_154224518_lowresThe NHL is now open for business. On the first day that teams are able to make roster moves, two trades took place this morning.

In the first deal of the day, the Carolina Hurricanes sent Brian Boucher and Mark Alt  to the Philadelphia Flyers for Luke Pither.

This will be Boucher’s third tour with the Flyers. Last season posted a 3.41 goals against average and .881 save percentage in 10 games with the Hurricanes. Boucher will be battling Michael Leighton for the backup spot behind Ilya Bryzgalov.

Alt was drafted in the 2nd round, 53rd overall by the Hurricanes in 2010. He’s in his junior season at the University of Minnesota.

Pither went undrafted, signing an entry level deal with the Flyers in 2010. Over the past three seasons, Pither has split time with Adirondack in the AHL and Trenton and Wheeling of the ECHL.

Shortly after the deal, the Hurricanes signed Dan Ellis to a 1 year deal worth $650,000. Ellis had been playing with the Hurricanes AHL team in  Charlotte.

The Hurricanes weren’t finished there as they traded for forward Kevin Westgarth. The Hurricanes sent Anthony Stewart to the Los Angeles Kings, along with a 2013 4th round pick and a 2014 6th round pick.

Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford said of Westgarth, “We were looking for a character, team guy who can play a gritty role for our team. Kevin is a good addition to fill that spot.”

Westgarth will bring some size and toughness to the Hurricanes bottom six. In the past two seasons combined, Westgarth recorded 144 penalty minutes in 81 games.  Westgarth carries a $725,000 cap hit for the next two season.

Stewart will give the Kings more offense that Westgarth provided. In 77 games last season, Stewart scored nine goals and added 11 assists for 20 points. In 2010-11, Stewart had his best season with the Atlanta Thrashers. He recorded 14 goals and 25 assists for 39 points in 80 games. Stewart carries a $900,000 cap hit and will be an unrestricted free agent after the season.
