2013 Trade Deadline

Predators GM disappointed at trading Erat

John Manasso - NHL.com Correspondent

The Nashville Predators tried to talk longtime right wing Martin Erat out of his trade request.

GOALS: 4 | ASST: 17 | PTS: 21
SOG: 60 | +/-: -7
General manager David Poile said he had a number of meetings with Erat, who ranks second all-time in most of the franchise's offensive categories, to make sure the request was not being made on an emotional basis. When Poile was satisfied it was not, he took 24 hours to consummate a deal with the Washington Capitals, satisfying Erat's demands.

Wednesday, Erat waived a no-movement clause allowing Nashville to trade him along with minor-league center Michael Latta for top prospect Filip Forsberg.

"I can't sugarcoat it," Poile said of Erat's request. "It's really disappointing."

Robyn Regehr excited to join Kings

Wednesday, 04.03.2013 / 7:09 PM / 2013 Trade Deadline

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Robyn Regehr doesn't have much connection to the Los Angeles Kings, other than having played for coach Darryl Sutter with the Calgary Flames.

Robyn Regehr
Defense - LAK
GOALS: 0 | ASST: 2 | PTS: 2
SOG: 15 | +/-: -4
He roomed with Drew Doughty at a Canada camp one year. He knows Jarret Stoll a little bit from the Saskatchewan area. Anything else? Well ...

"I remember I separated Justin Williams' shoulder in the corner one game [last March], so maybe he's not quite happy with me," Regehr said jokingly. "So we'll try to work it out. Water under the bridge."

The Kings would like this to be the beginning of an extended partnership with Regehr, 32, who was acquired Monday from the Buffalo Sabres for second-round draft picks in 2014 and 2015.

Pominville's departure signals overhaul for Sabres

Wednesday, 04.03.2013 / 7:01 PM / 2013 Trade Deadline

Chris Ryndak - NHL.com Correspondent

BUFFALO – The Buffalo Sabres will be looking for a new captain, who will lead a far different team.

Jason Pominville
Right Wing - MIN
GOALS: 10 | ASST: 15 | PTS: 25
SOG: 94 | +/-: 1
Buffalo traded its captain, Jason Pominville, and a fourth-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft to the Minnesota Wild for goaltender Matt Hackett, forward Johan Larsson, a first-round pick in 2013 and a second-round pick in 2014 in the last hour before the NHL Trade Deadline on Wednesday.

"Jason Pominville may have been at the bottom of the list of players I wanted to move," Sabres general manager Darcy Regier said.

Regier's decision to trade Pominville is the biggest move he's made since stating this past weekend that the team would be open to almost any trade involving roster players and prospects in an effort to set the franchise up for long-term success -- with the ultimate goal of winning the Stanley Cup.

Jason Pominville traded to Wild by Sabres

Wednesday, 04.03.2013 / 6:54 PM / 2013 Trade Deadline

Dan Myers - NHL.com Correspondent

Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise has played with and against forward Jason Pominville during his career and was excited to hear the news on Wednesday that his team had acquired the 30-year-old veteran in a trade with the Buffalo Sabres.

While the price for Pominville was steep, the Wild are looking to maintain some level of offensive consistency down the stretch -- the team is third in the Western Conference with 21 wins and 44 points.

Minnesota shipped goalie Matt Hackett and forward Johan Larsson, as well as a 2013 first-round pick and 2014 second-round pick, to the Sabres in exchange for Pominville and Buffalo's 2014 fourth-round draft.

Sharks add physicality with Torres, depth with Hannan

Wednesday, 04.03.2013 / 6:32 PM / 2013 Trade Deadline

Eric Gilmore - NHL.com Correspondent

SAN JOSE -- When the San Jose Sharks traded forward Ryane Clowe to the New York Rangers on Tuesday, the No. 1 question was obvious: How were the Sharks going to handle the stretch run without their most physical and intimidating player?

Sharks general manager Doug Wilson answered that question Wednesday with a deadline deal with the Phoenix Coyotes for forward Raffi Torres, a player known most for delivering devastating hits and playing with an infamous edge, but one who also has some skill.

"That’s exactly what you want," Wilson said. "You hate playing against him, you want him on your side. He can skate. People know when he’s on the ice. But he can play too. With Ryane moving on to New York, having that physical presence is very important. He’s a guy we are all very familiar with. He can play the game and he can get in there. The speed to his game is a big part of it. You want your physical presence to have speed."

Devils get Steve Sullivan from Coyotes

Wednesday, 04.03.2013 / 6:32 PM / 2013 Trade Deadline

NHL.com

A familiar face could be returning to the New Jersey Devils lineup as early as Saturday against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Prudential Center in Newark.

Steve Sullivan
Left Wing - NJD
GOALS: 5 | ASST: 7 | PTS: 12
SOG: 48 | +/-: -8
Steve Sullivan, a 1994 ninth-round draft pick (No. 233) of the Devils, was reacquired from the Phoenix Coyotes on Wednesday in exchange for a 2014 seventh-round draft pick. He totaled 49 games in two seasons with New Jersey in 1995-96 and 1996-97 before being traded on Feb. 25, 1997, to the Toronto Maple Leafs in the deal for Doug Gilmour.

"It was a shock [to learn I was going back to New Jersey], I really didn't see it coming, but it's a great opportunity," Sullivan told the Devils website. "I'm glad to be going back to where it all began."

Deadline frenzy sees Gaborik, Pominville, Erat moved

Wednesday, 04.03.2013 / 5:58 PM / 2013 Trade Deadline

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

The Columbus Blue Jackets are all in on their pursuit of the second Stanley Cup Playoffs berth in franchise history. The New York Rangers dealt a three-time 40-goal scorer. The Buffalo Sabres continued their shakeup by dealing their captain, the Nashville Predators traded one of their franchise fixtures, and a lot of other teams went for added depth.

Such was the activity at this year's NHL Trade Deadline, which saw most of the major deals crammed into the last 45 minutes before the 3 p.m. ET end of the trade period.

Here's a look at who did what:

Marian Gaborik
Right Wing - CBJ
GOALS: 9 | ASST: 10 | PTS: 19
SOG: 113 | +/-: -8
New York Rangers trade F Marian Gaborik, D Steven Delisle and D Blake Parlett to Columbus for D John Moore, C Derick Brassard, F Derek Dorsett and a sixth-round pick in 2014

Gaborik hit the 40-goal mark in two of his first three seasons with the Rangers, but he's struggled badly this season (nine goals and 19 points in 35 games, just two goals in his past 22) and had his ups and downs with New York coach John Tortorella, including a 10-minute on-ice session last week. If he can regain his scoring touch, he'll give a major boost to a team that's one point out of eighth place in the Western Conference despite being 29th in scoring. He has one more season on his contract at a cap hit of $7.5 million.

Kakalainen injects life into Blue Jackets with Gaborik

Marian Gaborik
Right Wing - CBJ
GOALS: 9 | ASST: 10 | PTS: 19
SOG: 113 | +/-: -8
With one blockbuster move shortly before the 2013 NHL Trade Deadline on Wednesday, the Columbus Blue Jackets put themselves on the map as a team to watch both now and into the future.

Blue Jackets rookie general manager Jarmo Kekalainen went for it on his first deadline day in the big seat and reeled in three-time 40-goal scorer Marian Gaborik from the New York Rangers in exchange for center Derick Brassard, right wing Derek Dorsett and defenseman John Moore.

Columbus also gave New York a sixth-round pick in 2014 and brought back Blake Parlett and Steven Delisle, a defenseman they gave the Rangers in the Rick Nash trade last summer.

Capitals add Erat from Predators for top prospect

Wednesday, 04.03.2013 / 5:04 PM / 2013 Trade Deadline

NHL.com

The Washington Capitals made a big move just before the 2013 NHL Trade Deadline passed, adding Martin Erat and Michael Latta from the Nashville Predators for 2012 first-round pick Filip Forsberg.

Washington general manager George McPhee announced the trade Wednesday on the Capitals Report podcast. Erat has four goals and 21 points in 36 games for the Predators this season. The 31-year-old has produced at least 49 points in seven straight seasons and eight of the past nine for Nashville. He was a seventh-round pick in the 1999 NHL Draft by the franchise.

Erat has a no-movement clause in his contract, but he granted approval to the deal to join the Capitals.

"It is always difficult to trade a player who was drafted, developed and who has produced for the franchise for many years such as Martin Erat, however, Marty came to us in recent days and indicated a trade might be in his best interests," Nashville general manager David Poile said on the team's website. "Thus, the process began and we were able to explore options with our primary goal being to acquire a young top end forward that would address our most critical need. We thank Martin for all his contributions to the Predators’ success over the years and wish him and his family the best in Washington."

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.

— Arizona Coyotes director of amateur scouting Tim Bernhardt regarding the coincidence that six of the organization's top prospects are sons of former NHL players
