Draft Update: 'Canes acquire defenseman Andrej Sekera

Posted by on Sun, Jun 30, 2013 at 6:58 PM

The Carolina Hurricanes have acquired Buffalo Sabres veteran defenseman Andrej Sekera in exchange for young defenseman Jamie McBain and the No. 35 overall selection in the 2013 NHL Draft.

According to Hurricanes general manager, Jim Rutherford, the Hurricanes offered its No. 5 overall selection and McBain for the Sabres No. 8 overall pick and Sekera, but the Sabres didn't take.

Sekera tallied 12 points, two goals and 10 assists, for the Sabres last season in 37 games. McBain recorded eight points, one goal and seven assits, in 40 games last year.

The Hurricanes will take a $2.75 million cap hit through Sekera's two remaining years under contract.
