Breaking New Jersey Devils Acquiring Timo Meier Per Elliotte Friedman

Sportsnet Hockey Insider Elliotte Friedman announced the New Devils are believed to have acquired Timo Meier from the San Jose Sharks. In exchange the Sharks will receive Fabian Zetterlund, and a 2023 first round pick.

The deal is not 100% official yet, but numerous sources are saying it's almost a done deal. The Sharks will retain 50% or Meier's salary, and the Vancouver Canucks will join as a third party and get a 4th round pick in the 2023 draft for retaining 25% of Meier's salary.

What separates Meier from prototypical power forwards is his mobility,» wrote Sportsnet analyst Adam Vingan. «Meier is at his best when pushing the pace. When Meier is on the ice, high-event hockey is the norm."

Meier will be a restricted free agent this off-season after his four-year, $24-million deal expires, although his cap hit is $6 million for this season, he is being paid $10 million and he is owed a $10-million qualifying offer if the Devils choose to re-sign which is almost certainly the plan.
