TAMPA BAY - An Oxbow hockey product was traded Sunday night in the NHL.
The Tampa Bay Lightning acquired forward Tanner Jeannot from the Nashville Predators in exchange for defenceman Cal Foote and five draft picks.
The picks include a conditional first-round pick in 2025, a second-round selection in 2024, and third, fourth and fifth-round picks in 2023.
Jeannot, a pending restricted free agent, has five goals, 14 points and 85 penalty minutes in 56 games played this season. In his first full season in the NHL in 2021-22, he had 24 goals, 41 points and 130 penalty minutes, and finished seventh in Calder Trophy voting for the league’s top rookie.
Jeannot played his developmental hockey in Oxbow and Estevan. After playing U15 AA hockey for Estevan in 2012-13, he spent a season with the Yorkton U18 AAA Maulers and then joined the Moose Jaw Warriors for the 2014-15 season. He signed with Nashville as an undrafted free agent in 2018.
The Lightning won the Stanley Cup in 2020 and 2021, and made it to the final in 2022.
