The Montreal Canadiens are trading defenseman Brett Kulak to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for defenseman William Lagesson, a conditional 2022 second-round pick, and a 2024 seventh-round pick, the teams announced.

Kulak, 28, carries a $1.85-million cap hit and is set to become an unrestricted free agent after the season. The left-handed blue-liner has three goals and eight assists in 56 games in 2021-22.

Lagesson, 26, will be a restricted free agent this summer. He has four assists in 30 NHL games this season and two helpers in 11 AHL contests.

The Oilers’ 2022 second-round pick is conditionally tied to the Chicago Blackhawks after Edmonton traded for Duncan Keith. If Edmonton’s second-round pick in 2022 goes to Chicago, then Montreal will receive Edmonton’s second-round pick in 2023.
