|(2/23/17) Kristo was traded to the Hurricanes, along with a second-round pick, in exchange for Ron Hainsey.|
At one point, Kristo was seen as talented forward with 20-goal per season potential in the NHL, but his star his dimmed since then. Kristo was a second-round pick in the 2008 NHL Draft, was a big part of Team USA's gold medal winning team at the 2010 World Junior Championship, and scored over a point per game over a 161 game career at the University of North Dakota. Since then, Kristo has played in the AHL level for four different franchises, tallying 153 points in 257 games. Don't expect Kristo to offer much from a fantasy standpoint if he ever receives a call to the big team.
