Wisniewski Traded to Montreal

Defenseman James Wisniewski has been traded from the New York Islanders to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for two draft picks. The 26-year-old blue liner will assume some of the defensive duties while Habs defenseman Andrei Markov is out for the season due to knee surgery.

This marks the fourth team for which Wisniewski has played in his six NHL seasons. The Chicago Blackhawks traded him to the Anaheim Ducks during the 2008-09 season, and after taking the Ducks to arbitration for the second summer in a row, the team traded him to the Islanders in Summer 2010.

During his short stint with the Islanders, Wisniewski quickly became one of the teams’ leading scorers and eventually an alternate captain. He automatically becomes the highest scoring Montreal defenseman with 21 points including 18 assists.
