TRANSACTION ALERT: Pat Maroon has just been traded by the Lightning

Published July 2, 2023 at 9:56 PM
We have just learned that the Tampa Bay Lightning has traded forward Pat Maroon to the Minnesota Wild, along with Max Cajkovic, for a 7th round pick.

The Lightning also retains 20% of the remaining salary.

"TB is retaining 20% of Maroon's salary... Minnesota instantly becomes the Stanley Cup favorite."

Elliotte Friedman

This is still an unexpected and very surprising trade, considering he is a three-time Stanley Cup winner, a very high-quality leader, and he had a fairly modest salary of $1 million per season.

Maroon, 35, is a 6-foot-3-inch winger who collected 14 points in 80 games in 2022-23 (150 penalty minutes). He earns $1M per season.

After Corey Perry, Tampa Bay loses another big piece of the team's locker room in Maroon.
