The Phoenix Coyotes have traded Steve Sullivan to the New Jersey Devils in exchange for a 7th round draft pick.

The Phoenix Coyotes have traded forward Steve Sullivan to the New Jersey Devils in exchange for a seventh round pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Sullivan was signed as a free agent by Phoenix this off-season with the hopes that he could replace some of the production lost when Ray Whitney signed with the Dallas Stars. While Sullivan scored five points (4-1-5), including a hat trick, in his first four games, he managed only one goal and six assist over his final 29 games with the team.

His final game with the Coyotes took place of Tuesday night and began with a pregame ceremony celebrating his 1000th NHL game milestone which he accomplished a few days prior. The writing was on the wall for Sullivan who will become an unrestricted free agent in the summer, after playing only nine minutes in his final game with the team.

New Jersey is somewhat familiar with Sullivan as he started his NHL career with them in the 1995-1996 season. Sullivan played 49 games over two seasons with the Devils scoring 13 goals and 31 points.
