Report: Jackets would deal first-rounder for scorer

Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen is willing to part with one of his three first-round picks before the trade deadline Wednesday in an effort to get more scoring into the lineup, according to a tweet from Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch.

The Blue Jackets own their first-round pick plus first-round picks that originally belonged to the Los Angeles Kings and New York Rangers. They picked up the Kings' pick in the trade for Jeff Carter last season, and they got the Rangers' pick in the trade for Rick Nash in the offseason.

Columbus is eighth in the Western Conference with 37 points. The Blue Jackets have won two in a row and are 10-2-5 since Feb. 26.

Report: Zetterberg still out, but Colaiacovo back

The Detroit Red Wings will be without Henrik Zetterberg again when they face the Colorado Avalanche on Monday (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN), but will get defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo back in the lineup, according to a report from Ansar Khan of mlive.com.

Colaiacovo, who missed the past 33 games with a sprained left shoulder, will replace rookie Brian Lashoff in the lineup and skate alongside Brendan Smith, coach Mike Babcock said.

Zetterberg missed Sunday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks with a groin issue that isn't quite better yet.

"Well, it's still day-to-day. I will say I feel a few percent better today than yesterday,'' Zetterberg told reporters. "That’s improvement. So we're still doing good treatment and hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow."

Sabres dealing Miller seems unlikely

Would the Buffalo Sabres attempt to deal their rock between the pipes, Ryan Miller, in an attempt to acquire the assets necessary to re-establish themselves as a Stanley Cup contender?

Though it isn't out of the realm of possibility, the chances are unlikely leading up to Wednesday's NHL Trade Deadline at 3 p.m. ET.

Miller has one season remaining on his contract that comes with an annual salary-cap hit of $6.25 million, according to Capgeek.com.

According to ESPN.com's Craig Custance, Miller does have trade protection in that he can submit a list of teams he won't accept a trade to, but some clubs believe the All-Star goalie, who has spent the past 10 seasons in Buffalo, wouldn't mind a change in scenery.
