A midsummer afternoon’s fleecing? Grading the Kasperi Kapanen trade

The Pittsburgh Penguins acquired Kasperi Kapanen in a multiplayer trade on Tuesday with the Toronto Maple Leafs, reuniting the 24-year-old forward with the general manager who drafted him.

The Penguins sent center Evan Rodrigues, defenseman David Warsofsky, forward Filip Hallander and their 2020 first-round draft pick (15th overall) to Toronto for Kapanen, the rights to KHL forward Pontus Aberg and defenseman Jesper Lindgren.
