Multiple media sources are reporting that Jamie Langenbrunner has been traded to the Dallas Stars for a conditional third-round pick in the 2011 draft.
The round of the pick can change depending on the Stars performance. If they advance past the first round of the playoffs, the Devils will receive a second-round pick. Also, if the team re-signs Langenbrunner before July 1, the pick will be upgraded to a second-round selection.
If the Stars re-sign Langenbrunner after July 1, the Devils will acquire the Stars second-round pick and trade Dallas their 2012 third round selection.
Langenbrunner will not play in the Stars' game tonight against the New York Rangers. His first game for Dallas will be Sunday in Minnesota.
Langenbrunner was asked to waive his no-trade clause by Devils' general manager Lou Lamoriello Thursday. Lamoriello wanted the Devils' captain to waive his rights for a few Western Conference teams. Despite Philadelphia's reported interest, Lamoriello did not want to keep Langenbrunner in the Eastern Conference.
Langenbrunner began his career with the Stars in 1994-95, becoming a regular on the roster two seasons later. He won his first Stanley Cup championship during the 1998-1999 season.
On March 19, 2002, the Devils acquired Langenbrunner and current Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk in a deal that sent Jason Arnott, Randy McKay and the Devils 2002 first-round draft pick to Dallas.
Langenbrunner, the eighth captain in Devils history, recorded just 14 points (four goals, 10 assists) this season.
