Quick blog post to let you know that the Pittsburgh Penguins have traded away Sergei Plotnikov to the Arizona Coyotes for a conditional seventh rough draft pick and Mattias Plachta.
Trade not official yet from the teams, but it’s been confirmed on Twitter by all the heavyweights:
Made official by Pittsburgh mid-Monday morning.
On Plachta, he’s 2-5-7 in 46 games with AHL Springfield. There is a local connection to the coaching staff in Wilkes-Barre as Plachta won the DEL Championship with Adler Mannheim last year, the same team that Jay Leach coached.
Quick scouting report on Plachta:
Perhaps a change of scenery will help him.
If there is another move, I’ll throw a brief quip up on the blog. My AHL Power Rankings hit the blog today at noon.
