Hours after the initial leak, we’ve finally learned all the details of what the San Jose Sharks got from the New Jersey Devils for Timo Meier, and vice versa.

Here’s how it trickled out:

Pierre LeBrun reported that the San Jose Sharks have traded 26-year-old winger Meier to the Devils.

LeBrun also reported that Meier and the Devils have not agreed to a contract extension. The pending RFA has a $10 million qualifying offer for next year.

Frank Seravalli reported that defenseman Scott Harrington is also going to New Jersey.

Shayna Goldman reported that the Devils’ 2023 first-round pick and 23-year-old winger Fabian Zetterlund is going to the San Jose Sharks.

Goldman also says that highly-regarded prospect blueliner Shakir Mukhamadullin and a conditional 2024 first-round pick are going to San Jose.

Elliotte Friedman also has 22-year-old defenseman Nikita Okhotiuk going to San Jose.

Friedman also reported that Andreas Johnsson is part of the trade. The 28-year-old winger is a pending UFA who’s been buried in the minors all year because of his declining productivity and $3.4 million AAV. This is a cap dump.

This appears to be the final trade:

Friedman did slow down the freight train though, saying on Sportsnet, “There’s a little bit of a hang-up here…It sounds like there’s an injury concern just kind of holding up the final deal.

“It’s not a done deal. There’s one player who’s a little banged-up that’s involved in this.

“They’re trying to sort their way through it.”

However, Friedman tweeted afterwards:

He then added:

So this is why it’s taken so long?

Meier is currently nursing what’s labeled as a day-to-day upper-body injury and has missed the last three San Jose Sharks games. Zetterlund was scratched last night, though head coach Lindy Ruff declined to say whether the Swedish winger was hurt.
