Kerby RychelA is off to another organization,A this time traded from the Montreal Canadiensto the Calgary Flames in exchange forA Hunter Shinkaruk. Interestingly, both players are currently unsigned restricted free agents and will need new contracts before playing this season. Rychel is now on his fourth NHL organization, after being traded by the Columbus Blue Jackets and Toronto Maple Leafs previously.

Ita€™s been a tough road for Rychel since he was selected 19th overall in the 2013 draft. After the draft he returned to captain his Windsor Spitfires in the OHL only to be traded by his father, GM and former NHL playerA Warren Rychel, during the season to the Guelph Storm. Guelph would ultimately win an OHL Championship with the power winger in the fold, as Rychel lead the way with 32 points in 20 playoff games. After that final season in junior he would join the Springfield Falcons of the AHL for the 2014-15 season where he would find some success, and even make his NHL debut with the Blue Jackets just after his 20th birthday.

After 32 more games with the Blue Jackets in the 2015-16 season he was traded to the Maple Leafs in exchange forA Scott Harrington, a talented prospect in his own right who hadna€™t been able to find full-time NHL work.A
