BUFFALO – The Sabres this afternoon added to their forward corps shortly before the 3 p.m. trade deadline, acquiring winger Jordan Greenway from the Minnesota Wild in exchange for a second-round pick this year and a fifth-rounder in 2024.
The 6-foot-6, 231-pound Greenway, 26, played junior hockey for Sabres coach Don Granato at the U.S. National Team Development Program.
Greenway has endured a rough season, compiling just two goals and seven points in 45 games. Overall, he has registered 38 goals and 119 points in 316 career NHL games over the last six seasons.
The Wild drafted Greenway in the second round in 2015, 50th overall. He played three years at Boston University before turning pro.
The American has two seasons left on a three-year, $9 million contract.
The Sabres this afternoon also swapped AHL defensemen with Anaheim, sending Chase Priskie to the Ducks in exchange for Austin Strand.
The 6-foot-3, 208-pound Strand, 26, has compiled three assists in 26 career NHL outings with the Ducks and Los Angeles Kings.
He has registered two goals, eight points and a minus-24 rating in 46 contests with the San Diego Gulls this season.
Update: The Sabres have also traded forward Rasmus Asplund to the Nashville Predators in exchange for a seventh-round pick in 2025.
