Lightning make trade announcement on... twitter (!)

Egads. Twitter.

The Lightning announced today, via twitter, that they have traded Evgeny Artyukin to the Anaheim Ducks for Drew Miller and a 3rd round draft pick in 2010. Even though Artyukin was a bit of a fan favorite in Tampa, this is a great trade for the Lightning.

Didn't really see much of Miller as a Duck, he only played 27 games last season and 53 career total, but he had 4 goals and 6 assists. He also was part of the 2007 Stanley Cup winning team. Oh, and he's the brother of Buffalo's Ryan Miller, not as famous but he, unlike his brother has a cup.


  1. That will be the only time Ryan sees a Cup unless he leaves Cupless Sabres..

  2. The Sabres just keep making moves that baffle me.
