Nikita Nesterov was dealt to Montreal for a sixth round pick and Jonathan Racine yesterday just prior to the Lightning's overtime loss in Sunrise. It marked Lightning GM Steve Yzerman’s first NHL player trade since February 9, 2015, when he sent Evgeni Nabokov to San Jose for future considerations.
