In a smaller trade development the Montreal Canadiens have acquired defenceman Keegan Lowe from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for Phillip Samuelsson.
It’s worth noting here that Keegan is the son of former Edmonton Oiler Kevin Lowe. Phillip Samuelsson on the other had has perhaps the more famous lineage in this trade being Ulf Samuelsson‘s son. Ulf of course was a part of the 1991 and 1992 Stanley Cup winning Pittsburgh Penguins.
Keegan will most likely report the Habs AHL affiliate St.Johns Ice Caps to help with their push to the playoffs.
