When the Florida Panthers traded for Mason Marchment a year ago, it was basically viewed as them trying to get something in return for a player they had given up on.
Denis Malgin was not playing much in Florida and it appeared he desperately needed a change of scenery.
In return for Malgin, Florida got back an undrafted forward who has spent much of his pro career in the AHL as well as part of a season with the ECHL’s Orlando Solar Bears.
Marchment got in four games in four seasons with the Leafs organization so he also looked like a guy who may benefit from a fresh start with a new team.
Although it is still too early to judge who won or lost what was by no means a blockbuster trade, the Panthers are pretty happy with what they got back in the deal.
