Marcus Johansson has been traded to the New Jersey Devils for a second round pick in 2018 and a third round pick in 2018.
Johansson holds a cap hit of just over 4.5 million per year and was an excellent depth option for the Capitals in their previous campaigns. He has 58 points this season with 24 goals.
He is 26 years old, and has 1 more year remaining on his contract, along with a modified no movement clause that holds 5 teams he cannot be traded to.
This comes in the wake of signing Evgeny Kuznetzov to 7.8 million per year for the Washington Capitals.
