The Columbus Blue Jackets have traded power forward Raffi Torres to the Buffalo Sabres in return for defenseman Nathan Paetsch and a second round draft pick.

Torres, a native of Toronto, has registered 19 goals, 31 points, and 32 penalty minutes through 60 games with the Blue Jackets.

Through 418 NHL games, Torres has amassed 98 goals and 177 points.

Known as a tough, in your face kind of player, Torres will be a nice addition for the Sabres, adding another physical element to their already tough roster and a bit of scoring to boot.

In Paetsch, the Blue Jackets receive a defenseman that has struggled to stick with the Sabres, posting seven goals and 42 points in 157 NHL games, with a plus/minus rating of plus-17.

Paetsch has a chance to get more playing time in Columbus, but this trade is a clear win for the Sabres, at least in the short term.
