Frattin, Schultz to make Blue Jackets debuts

The Columbus Blue Jackets' two newest players will be in the lineup when the Blue Jackets play at the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday.

Forward Matt Frattin, part of the package that came over from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for Marian Gaborik, will start the game on the fourth line with Derek McKenzie and Mark Letestu. That was the group he did line rushes with during the team's morning skate.

Frattin said he was looking forward to getting right into a game with his new team.

"I talked to our coaching staff and they want us to play a hard game," Frattin said. "I think I fit right in with that."

NHL Live to chat with St. Louis, Moulson on trades

NHL Live with Steve Mears and E.J. Hradek, at 5 p.m. ET on NHL Network, previews a 10-game Thursday around the League in the aftermath of the NHL Trade Deadline on Wednesday.

Martin St. Louis was dealt from the Tampa Bay Lightning to the New York Rangers in a blockbuster, and he'll join the show by phone to talk about the big trade and why he wanted to play in the Big Apple.

It's been a hectic year for Matt Moulson, who was traded from the New York Islanders to the Buffalo Sabres earlier in the season and then moved to the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday. He'll call in to discuss playing for three teams in one season and his hopes for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Islanders general manager Garth Snow will discuss the trade deadline deal of Thomas Vanek to the Montreal Canadiens and his hopes for the franchise in the future.

Also, Steven Stamkos returns for the Lightning against the Sabres, and beat writer Damien Cristodero will join us from the Arena Cam at the Tampa Bay Times Forum to talk about that as well as the St. Louis trade that brought Ryan Callahan back for the Lightning.

Panthers trade goalie Thomas to Stars

One day after acquiring Roberto Luongo, the Florida Panthers traded goaltender Tim Thomas to the Dallas Stars for goaltender Dan Ellis.

Thomas was 16-20-3 with a .909 save percentage and 2.87 goals-against average this season for the Panthers. He did not play in 2012-13, but returned to the NHL on a one-year contract with Florida.

"Tim is a proven goaltender in this League that has won the big games when they matter the most," Stars general manager Jim Nill said in a statement. "We have 20 games left in just 39 days, including four sets of back-to-back situations, and adding a player of Tim's caliber helps our depth at the goaltender position."

Vanek traded from Islanders to Canadiens

The New York Islanders traded Thomas Vanek to the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday for a second-round draft pick and forward prospect Sebastian Collberg.

Vanek is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent after the season. He turned down a contract extension from the Islanders last month because he appears intent on testing his market value when the free-agent signing period opens July 1.

"Right now my mind is just racing a little bit," Vanek told TSN. "... This is pretty fresh to me, but never say never."

The Islanders acquired Vanek in late October in a trade that sent Matt Moulson, a conditional first-round draft pick and a 2015 second-round draft pick to the Buffalo Sabres. Moulson reportedly was traded to the Minnesota Wild around the same time the news broke on Vanek's trade to the Canadiens.

"I played a lot there with Buffalo; it's electric city, great fans, great building, so I'm excited to join them," Vanek said of Montreal.

Quote of the Day

We've got a team filled with captains, that's what I think. With these first two games we got in, we're really dominating and moving the puck really fast, and it's worked out really good.
