Ott Moved To Montreal

Steve Ott was held out of the lineup and traded to the Montreal Canadiens last night for a sixth-round pick in 2018.

The Wings won their game in Vancouver 3-2 in overtime as Justin Abdelkader scored on a power play.

Ott tweeter out " it sure was a dream to say I was a Detroit Red Wing."

He also posted on his twitter account, "now it's on to another incredible organization, the Montreal Canadiens.  Can't wait to go on a run with such an historic franchise"."

Detroit is likely to miss the playoffs for the first time since 1990 and the team is in selling mode at today's trade deadline, sending defenceman Brendan Smith to the Rangers earlier in the day in exchange for draft picks.
