The Dallas Stars traded away two veteran players on Tuesday - a sign the club is less than optimistic about making the Stanley Cup playoffs this season.
Jaromir Jagr was shipped east to the Boston Bruins in exchange for forwards Lane MacDermid and Cody Payne and a conditional second-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft. The draft pick could become a first-round selection if the Bruins advance to the Eastern Conference Finals.
"Jaromir Jagr produced as a consistent scorer for our team all year and we would like to thank him for his contributions to our hockey club," said Dallas Stars General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk in a press release. "With our eye to the future, we have acquired some valuable assets that we believe strengthen our organization."
The Stars also traded center Derek Roy to the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for defenseman Kevin Connauton and a second-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft.
Both Jagr and Roy were signed to one-year deals before the season and would have been free agents in the coming off-season.
