Red Wings trade goalie Petr Mrazek to Flyers for conditional picks


In 22 games this season, Mrazek had a record of 8-7-3 with a 2.89 goals-against average and a.910 save percentage.

The Philadelphia Flyers announced on Monday night that they acquired goaltender Petr Mrazek from the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for two mid-round draft picks - a conditional 4th round draft pick in the 2018 NHL Draft and a conditional 3rd round draft pick in 2019.

The Red Wings blocked 10 Predators shots in the game's first 11 minutes, protecting Mrazek. Defensively, the Nashville Predators are allowing 2.5 goals per game and are killing 82 percent of their opponents power plays. Current thought is the Flyers won't be willing to tender an offer, leaving Mrazek free find a new home for the 2018-19 season.

The 2019 third-round pick is conditional based on if Mrazek re-signs with the Flyers following the season. He helped lead Detroit to the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs where he appeared in three games, posted one shutout and a 1.36 GAA and.945 save percentage in a first round exit to the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Flyers' desperate need at that position came with injuries to both Brian Elliott and backup goaltender Michal Neuvirth. If the Flyers advance to the Eastern Conference Final in the playoffs and Mrazek wins six playoff games, the pick becomes a second-round pick. Two years ago, Mrazek had a.921 save percentage and some had him in the Vezina Trophy conversation. The Red Wings have the fourth-fewest point total in the East and are looking to move more players before next week's trade deadline.

Only time will tell if the Red Wings made the right decision in sticking with Howard rather than Mrazek.
