Lightning trade Mikhail Sergachev to Utah amid flurry of moves - ESPN

After a quiet first day of the NHL draft, Day 2 kicked off with a stunner as the Tampa Bay Lightning traded defenseman Mikhail Sergachev to the Utah Hockey Club.

Utah added New Jersey Devils defenseman John Marino, building out its defensive corps in preparation for its first season in Salt Lake City after relocating from Arizona. Tampa Bay then sent forward Tanner Jeannot to the Los Angeles Kings.

Sergachev, 26, was acquired from the Lightning for restricted free agent defenseman J.J. Moser, high-scoring center prospect Conor Geekie, a second-round pick in 2025 and Tampa Bay's seventh-round pick in 2024.

The defenseman is entering the second year of an eight-year contract extension he signed with the Lightning in June 2022. He had a no-trade clause that was set to kick in July 1.

Sergachev's contract carries an average annual value of $8.5 million against the salary cap, which will give the Lightning flexibility to potentially resign captain Steven Stamkos, who becomes an unrestricted free agent on Monday. The Lightning's last offer to Stamkos was an eight-year contract with an average annual value of just $3 million, which was rejected by the star forward.

He played seven seasons for the Lightning after being acquired from the Montreal Canadiens in 2017 in a trade that saw Jonathan Drouin go to Montreal. The defenseman helped Tampa Bay win
