Welcome to National sports spotlight NOW where local sports talk show host Joe Gallant highlights a hot topic in national sports each week.

Boston Bruins have traded David Backes, prospect defensemen Alex Andersson, and the Bruins 2020 1st round pick to Anaheim for forward Ondrej Kase.

Kase only 24, makes $2.4 million and flashed a few years ago with 20 goals in 2017.

He could fit nicely on the second line at right wing with David Krejci as he is a right shot.

Is there a second move to come from GM Don Sweeney? The trade deadline is Monday.
