As first reported by, TSN’s Bob McKenzie, the Tampa Bay Lightning have traded forward J.T. Miller to the Vancouver Canucks for a conditional first-round pick in 2020, a third-round selection in 2019, and goaltender Marek Mazanec.

If the Canucks do not make the playoffs this season, the first round pick will become a 2021 first-round pick.

This is a great move for the Lightning as they are able to shed $5.9 million dollars in cap space for this upcoming off-season. They’ll be looking to make a splash when Free Agency opens up July 1st.

However, for the Canucks, they gave up a lot but picked up a much needed versatile talent up front. Miller, just 26-years-old, had a solid 2018-19 season accounting for 13 goals, 34 assists in a record-breaking season for the Lightning.
