By Mike Morreale, The Associated PressNASHVILLE — It was a rare day of quiet in Nashville, and one that was interrupted by an announcement that a player who has spent the past five years with the Predators was to be traded.
But the move did not come without a twist.
In a move that stunned fans and left most with a mix of shock and confusion, the Predators announced Tuesday that defenseman Nikita Tryamkin would be traded from the club to the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The move has made Nashville one of the few teams without a clear trade deadline in the past decade.
It is also likely to be the only time that no player will be traded this season.
The Predators had no comment, saying the decision was still being worked out.
The team, which is also looking to replace its injured defensemen with free agents, had been in discussions with the Maple Leafs about a potential deal to bring Tryamkins home.
They could have done so after the deadline, but it’s unclear how much they’d have gotten back.
The Leafs had been shopping for a defenseman in the summer, when they acquired defenseman Luke Schenn from the New York Islanders in exchange for defenseman Ryan Sproul and a conditional first-round pick.
The deal has since collapsed, with Toronto losing out on the prospect.
A trade with the Leafs would have given the Predators a much-needed asset to bolster their top-six, which has struggled to generate offense.
But the deal with Toronto has led to speculation that a trade is on the horizon, with both the Predators and the Leafs saying they want to move forward with talks.
