Tampa Bay Lightning trades Karri Ramo for Montreal Canadiens AHL goalie

TAMPA — The Lightning acquired goaltender Cedrick Desjardins from the Canadiens on Monday in exchange for goaltender Karri Ramo.

"We are happy to be able to add Cedrick," vice president and GM Steve Yzerman said. "With his American Hockey League experience, he will provide excellent goaltending depth for the organization, allowing us to be patient while Dustin Tokarski and Jaroslav Janus further mature and develop."

Desjardins, 6 feet and 194 pounds, turns 25 next month. The native of Edmunston, New Brunswick, has played in 90 career AHL games, with a 49-27-5 record, 2.34 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage. He has played all his AHL games with the Hamilton Bulldogs, including career-highs last season for games played with 45, wins with 29, minutes with 2,576, shutouts with six and goals-against average with 2.00. He tied his best for save percentage with .919.
