On Friday night, the Florida Panthers made a big statement by trading MacKenzie Weegar and Jonathan Huberdeau to the Calgary Flames.


Upon moving to South Florida, Tkachuk signed an eight-year contract with a $9.5 million annual cap hit.


After a 104-point season, the restricted free agent was due to enter arbitration but refused to sign a long-term contract with Calgary.


Florida general manager Bill Zito praised Matthew as "a fierce, physical competitor with a truly unique skillset."


He has established himself as one of the most complete and dynamic young players in the National Hockey League and consistently contributes at an elite offensive level. We are overjoyed to be able to expand our talent pool with a generational talent.


He had a list of teams that he was willing to sign an extension with, including Dallas, Nashville, St. Louis, and Vegas.


Zito seized the possibility.

To complete the transaction, he sent Huberdeau, Weegar, Cole Schwindt, a lottery-protected 2025 first-round selection, and two 2019 third-round picks to Calgary.


A conditional fourth-round pick was also given to the Panthers as part of the agreement.


Huberdeau, who recently completed his greatest career season, is Florida's all-time leader in games played (671) and points (613) scored.

Huberdeau, who recently completed his greatest career season, is Florida's all-time leader in games played (671) and points (613) scored.





"We would like to thank Jonathan and MacKenzie on behalf of the entire Florida Panthers organization for their enormous contributions to the Florida Panthers, both on and off the ice, throughout their tenures in South Florida," Zito stated.



They both developed into outstanding athletes and people. Their efforts, both as individuals and as athletes, left a lasting impression on our team, and we wish them both tremendous success in the future.



He recorded 115 points and led the league in assists with 85, placing seventh in the Hart Trophy voting.



Weegar just completed his second consecutive season in which he placed in the top 15 in the Norris Trophy voting.



Following the 2022–23 season, Huberdeau and Weegar are both expected to become unrestricted free agents.



Despite trying to negotiate extensions for both players, Zito claimed that he eventually decided to trade them.



According to PuckPedia, the Panthers are $4 million over the salary cap as a result of Tkachuk's deal.






Anthony Duclair's Achilles injury this offseason will allow Florida to save $3 million by putting him on LTIR at the start of the season.



To comply with the cap, they must set aside an additional $1 million.



This is a breaking news story that will be updated as more details come to light.
