The Tampa Bay Lightning continued their busy night late last night as the team sent Nate Thompson to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for a 4th and a seventh round pick in 2015. Prior to that, the Lightning moved Teddy Purcell to Edmonton in exchange for Sam Gagner, followed by a trade with the Arizona Coyotes that sent the newly acquired Gagner along with BJ Crombeen out west in exchange for a seventh round pick in the 2015 draft.
