Sopel & Dawes to Habs

Habs acquire Sopel, Dawes from ThrashersThursday, 02.24.2011 / 2:21 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline 16
Share The Atlanta Thrashers have traded defenseman Brent Sopel and left wing Nigel Dawes to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for center Ben Maxwell and a 2011 fourth-round draft pick.

The Canadiens were in dire need of a defenseman following the recent injuries along the blue line to Josh Gorges and Andrei Markov, as well as Jaroslav Spacek. Sopel, who is in his 12th season, has 2 goals, 7 points and a plus-7 rating in 59 games with the Thrashers this season. He won a Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2009-10 before being traded to Atlanta in June, 2010.

Atlanta General Manager Rick Dudley, meanwhile, was in need of a center after trading a top-two line center, Rich Peverley, in a four-player deal last week. Maxwell was selected No. 49 in the second round of the 2006 Entry Draft.

Congrats to both. Other than winning the cup, getting out of Atlanta has got to be the 2nd best thing that could happen to a player in the spring.
