Traded: Mathieu Schneider
The Atlanta Thrashers traded veteran defenseman Mathieu Schneider on Tuesday to the Montreal Canadiens for a 2009 2nd Round pick and a 2010 3rd Round pick in the NHL Entry Draft. Schneider returns to the team that originally picked him 44th overall in the 1987 Draft. Schneids played parts of 7 seasons with the Habs including a Stanley Cup win during the 1992-93 season before winding his way between the Islanders, Maple Leafs, Rangers, Kings, Red Wings, Ducks and Thrashers. On 44 games this season with Atlanta he has 4 goals and 11 assists for 15 points and a shockingly bad -10 rating. A 1,241 game veteran we wish Mathieu the best as he returns to his original squad.
