Habs trade Smith-Pelly to Devils

Both teams swap the same type player. Stefan Matteau is a hard nose player and will be popular with the French fans early.

Smith-Pelly had good chemistry with Michael McCarron on Saturday vs Toronto but a particular off-ice issue couldn’t be forgetten. He may have too much chemistry with Alex Galchenyuk.

Smith-Pelly should fit well in the Devils defensive system.
