Shaw, Eller and Elliott all traded


The first round of the NHL Draft may have been relatively light on Canadian players selected, but it had plenty of trades. 

A total of seven trades dotted Friday's first round, highlighted by a pair of marquee playoff performers in center Andrew Shaw and goaltender Brian Elliott.

Chicago traded Shaw to the Montreal Canadiens for two second-round picks.

The Canadiens sent center Lars Eller to the Washington Capitals for second-round picks in 2017 and 2018.

The St Louis Blues traded Elliott to the Calgary Flames for a second-round pick this year and a conditional third-round pick in 2018.

The Ottawa Senators traded with the New Jersey Devils to move up from 12 to 11 and select 18-year-old center Logan Brown.

The Devils, who also got the 80th overall pick from the Senators, selected center Michael McLeod at 12. 

The Detroit Red Wings traded the 16th pick and Pavel Datsyuk's contract to the Arizona Coyotes for the 20th pick, originally owned by the New York Rangers, and the 53rd pick, along with forward Joe Vitale.

Datsyuk announced last week he is moving back to his native Russia.

The Coyotes used the 16th overall selection on defenseman Jakob Chychrun, the son of former NHL player Jeff.

The Red Wings used the 20th pick on defenseman Dennis Cholowski.

The Winnipeg Jets acquired the 18th and 79th overall picks from the Philadelphia Flyers for the 22nd and 36th overall selections.

The Jets selected towering defenseman Logan Stanley, while the Flyers picked Russian center German Rubtsov at 22. 

The Blues moved up from 28 to 26 and also sent the Capitals the 87th overall selection.

With the 26th pick, the Blues selected center Tage Thompson while the Capitals used the 28th selection on defenseman Lucas Johansen, the brother of Nashville Predators center Ryan.
