Ryan Johansen and Seth Jones were traded for one another in what was the first blockbuster deal of the current NHL season. As Jones was coming in to Columbus, and Johansen was leaving to go to Nashville, the two bumped into each other at the Port Columbus airport and talked for about 20 minutes according to Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch.

Also according to Portzline, Jones offered Johansen his apartment in Nashville which Johansen accepted.

Some additional info about the trade: 1. Jones will continue to wear #3 for the Blue Jackets while Johansen will wear #92 for the Preds, 2. Jones is a restricted free agent after this season so the Jackets will need to sign him long term or this deal could be costly, and 3. Johansen has another year after this season on his bridge contract so he will definitely have to play better in Nashville if he wants to stay there long term.
