Even though the two were brought in separately, the acquisitions of Johnny Boychuk and Nick Leddy will always be synonymous within the lore of the New York Islanders.

Sabres Trade For Johnny Boychuk to Solve Cap Compliance Issues

As such, they needed to make a cap move.

Sabres' Johnny Boychuk: Contract traded to Buffalo

Boychuk (eye) was traded to the Sabres from the Islanders in exchange for future considerations Thursday. Boychuk is essentially retired due to his long-term eye injury, but he still carries a $6 million cap hit, and adding his salary will help Buffalo get over the cap floor following the trade that sent Jack Eichel (neck) to Vegas. Boychuk will likely officially announce his retirement following the conclusion of the 2021-22 campaign.
