Andrej Sekera was acquired in a draft day deal from the Buffalo Sabres. The trade sent Jamie McBain and the 35th overall pick in that draft to Buffalo.
So far, the Carolina Hurricanes have to taken the win for that trade, no doubt. Andrej Sekera won’t blow you away with a single aspect of his game, but he is good everywhere.
He plays with Justin Faulk as a top 2 defenseman for the Hurricanes, he plays on the powerplay, and he kills penalties. I love the addition of Sekera. He brings alot of good things to the Hurricane blue line.
He plays very well in his own end, he moves the puck well, and he is a great skater.
He does make mistakes, and he does have his off games, but so does every other player in the NHL. He has played very well.
