Devils haven't approached Zidlicky about trade: report

Marek Zidlicky of the New Jersey Devils could be on the radar for teams looking for an offensive-minded defenseman prior to the 2015 NHL Trade Deadline at 3 p.m. ET on March 2, but his contract contains a no-trade clause and he told Northjersey.com on Monday that general manager Lou Lamoriello has not approached him about waiving it.

"I don't think about that," Zidlicky said of a possible trade. "The last two games was pretty tough for us and I don't think about it."

Petry's agent expects trade from Oilers: report

Edmonton Oilers defenseman Jeff Petry expects to be traded by the 2015 NHL Trade Deadline on March 2 at 3 p.m., his agent told the Edmonton Journal.

"We have had no contract negotiations with the Oilers and we've expressed that to Jeff," Petry's agent Wade Arnott told Jim Matheson. "We expect Jeff will be dealt by the deadline."

A right-handed shot, Petry was the Oilers' second-round pick (No. 45) in the 2006 NHL Draft and has played 292 games in Edmonton. Sources told the Journal that teams have started calling Arnott to inquire if Petry, who could become an unrestricted free agent July 1, is interested in signing an extension. That would, according to Matheson, potentially increase Petry's value.

Petry, 27, has four goals, 10 assists, 100 shots on goal and a minus-25 rating in 56 games for the Oilers. He signed a one-year contract for the 2014-15 season worth $3.075 million.

Coyotes' Vermette trying to ignore trade talk: report

Arizona Coyotes center Antoine Vermette said he doesn't need to follow all the speculation surrounding his future. He told TSN on Thursday he has others to do that for him.

"It comes from people around you, and TSN does a good job of keeping me updated," he said. "But I'm not focusing on the rumors. It's just part of the situation. Being from Canada I know how passionate fans are. I get that and I just try and deal with it as best I can."

Vermette said he has spoken to Coyotes general manager Don Maloney about what could happen between now at the trade deadline, which is 3 p.m. ET on March 2.

After Kane trade, Jets GM open to making more moves

Winnipeg Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff made the first big splash leading up to the 2015 NHL Trade Deadline when he sent forward Evander Kane to the Buffalo Sabres for defenseman Tyler Myers, forward Drew Stafford, two prospects and a draft pick.

Appearing on NHL Live on Thursday, Cheveldayoff said he'd potentially be open to more moves before the 3 p.m. deadline on March 2.

"We still think that if there's a chance to grab a forward we would certainly look at that, but we'll see," Cheveldayoff said. "It's one of those things where you don't know what opportunities present themselves. The trade deadline is getting closer. Everything always starts heating up at that point in time so we'll keep our options open."

Flames' Treliving won't make reactionary trade: report

Calgary Flames general manager Brad Treliving said he won't force a trade after other Western Conference contenders made deals this week.

"You're cognizant of the teams around you, but you don't do anything just because somebody else did," Treliving told the Calgary Sun on Wednesday. "I think you have to be very careful of saying, 'Well, Team X did this, so we've have to go do something just to do something.'"

Calgary entered play Thursday in the second wild-card position into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Western Conference.
