The Utah Hockey Club wanted to make a Summer splash and they did by acquiring defenseman Mikhail Sergachev from the Tampa Bay Lightning, a trade that took everyone by surprise, including Sergachev himself.

The Lightning traded the two-time Stanley Cup champion to Utah in exchange for former first-round pick and current prized prospect Conor Geekie, young defenseman J.J. Moser, and a couple of draft picks. It was a blockbuster that shocked both Bolts and Utah fans.
Mikhail Sergachev was introduced to his new friends in Utah today.

He explains the surprise of getting dealt, what he would have done if his NMC triggered and the two guys he learned from in Tampa Bay when it comes to leadership.
After the trade, a stunned Sergachev reached out to his agent and players in Utah, including star forward Clayton Keller, who was also involved in trade rumors himself but is staying put.
The Russian blueliner met with players and staff making the move from being the Arizona Coyotes as a result of the relocation sale to Ryan Smith. Everyone involved are eager to experience Mormon hockey for the first time together which has made him excited for the new challenge.

Utah Hockey Club can look forward to having Sergachev for the long haul, as the 26 year-old stud still has seven years remaining on the eight-year extension he signed with Tampa Bay, which carries an $8.5 million cap hit.
