|(1/14/16) Mullen has been traded to the Predators with Conor Allen heading to Ottawa.|
The two teams simply swap blueliners with this deal. Both players had been playing for their respective minor-league affiliates, but unlike Allen, it's Mullen who has yet to make his NHL debut at the age of 29. The Boston native last played for AHL Binghamton and recorded 16 points with 18 PIM in 36 games. It's tough to picture Mullen having a significant role with the club, though the team must've had some good reports on him to go through the trouble of swapping him for a more experienced defenseman.
