Tuesday, 04.02.2013 / 6:32 PM / 2013 Trade Deadline

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

The Montreal Canadiens spent the better part of March auditioning some of their young defense prospects for the sixth spot on their blue line.

The organization finally decided to look at an external solution Tuesday.

The Canadiens acquired defenseman Davis Drewiskie from the Los Angeles Kings for a fifth-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft.

"Davis Drewiske is a defenseman with good size and experience who has already played more than 120 games in the NHL. He adds significant depth to our group of defensemen," Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin said in a statement.

Oilers and Capitals make minor deal

Tuesday, 04.02.2013 / 3:37 PM / 2013 Trade Deadline

NHL.com

The Edmonton Oilers finalized a minor trade on Tuesday afternoon when they acquired defenseman Garrett Stafford from the Washington Capitals in exchange for forward Dane Byers.

Stafford, 33, had one goal and 21 points in 48 games with Washington's American Hockey League affiliate in Hershey this season. In seven career NHL games with three teams -- the Detroit Red Wings, Dallas Stars and Phoenix Coyotes -- the 6-foot, 194-pound defender had two assists. He was signed as a free agent to a one-year contract with the Caps in July 2012.

Byers, a 2004 second-round draft pick (No. 48) of the New York Rangers, spent the past season with the Oklahoma City Barons in the AHL. The 6-3, 203-pound left wing had six goals, 10 points and 144 penalty minutes in 58 matches for the Barons. He has played in 14 career NHL games with the Rangers and Columbus Blue Jackets, and has one goal and 60 penalty minutes.

The Oilers signed Byers to a one-year, two-way contract last July.

Stars trade Jagr to Bruins for prospects, 2013 pick

Tuesday, 04.02.2013 / 2:52 PM / 2013 Trade Deadline

NHL.com

After losing out on Jarome Iginla last week, the Boston Bruins have landed a different veteran right wing likely bound for the Hall of Fame in a trade Tuesday.

The Dallas Stars have traded 41-year-old Jaromir Jagr to the Bruins in exchange for a conditional second-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft and two prospects.

The conditional second-round pick becomes a first-round selection if Boston advances to the Eastern Conference Finals in this year's Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"Jaromir Jagr produced as a consistent scorer for our team all year and we would like to thank him for his contributions to our hockey club," Dallas Stars general manager Joe Nieuwendyk said. "With our eye to the future, we have acquired some valuable assets that we believe strengthen our organization."

Sabres know more trades could be on the way

Tuesday, 04.02.2013 / 2:37 PM / 2013 Trade Deadline

Chris Adamski - NHL.com Correspondent

PITTSBURGH -- Following the Buffalo Sabres' morning skate Tuesday, they spent most of their time complimenting recently traded teammate Robyn Regehr.

They spent some of the rest of it wondering who could be next.

General manger Darcy Regier hasn't been very secretive of the Sabres' plans for roster turnover and a rebuild as the team enters its game Tuesday against the Pittsburgh Penguins in 13th place in the Eastern Conference and appears on its way to a second consecutive season that ends short of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"It's a tough situation for everyone," Buffalo captain Jason Pominville said. "This time of year there's a lot of talk, a lot of speculation that comes out. Some guys hear it, some guys don't. We don't talk about those kinds of things before games, but obviously on off days and in the morning, guys will throw a chirp in here or there. And that's just part of the business and we have to deal with it."

Trade bittersweet, but Bouwmeester feeling Blues

Tuesday, 04.02.2013 / 12:40 PM / 2013 Trade Deadline

Aaron Vickers - NHL.com Correspondent

Jay Bouwmeester
Defense - STL
GOALS: 6 | ASST: 9 | PTS: 15
SOG: 55 | +/-: -11

CALGARY -- Asked to describe his time as a member of the Calgary Flames, the often soft-spoken Jay Bouwmeester characterized his tenure rather quickly.

Bittersweet.

The latest asset sold off by Flames general manager Jay Feaster, Bouwmeester was traded to the St. Louis Blues on Monday in exchange for a conditional first-round pick and prospects Mark Cundari and Reto Berra.

"Whenever you're standing here doing this, it's probably because things didn't quite go how you would've planned," Bouwmeester said. "I can look back and when I first came, it was a similar situation. There was a lot of optimism. I was super excited to be here and everything looked great going forward."

Blues excited to land Bouwmeester

Tuesday, 04.02.2013 / 12:39 AM / 2013 Trade Deadline

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

The St. Louis Blues have coveted Jay Bouwmeester since last summer.

They've been rumored to be in on the NHL's current top ironman, with a need for a left-handed defenseman and a guy that can complement Alex Pietrangelo on the team's top defensive pairing.

Blues general manager Doug Armstrong finally got his man Monday night when he swung a trade for Bouwmeester, acquiring the 10-year veteran from the Calgary Flames in exchange for defenseman Mark Cundari, the rights to goaltender Reto Berra and a first-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft.

If the Blues fail to qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Flames will receive the Blues’ fourth-round pick at this year’s draft, while the first-round selection will be deferred until 2014.

"It's taken the better part of 10 months to find the piece," Armstrong said via conference call. "It goes back through when we were looking to add a player (last off-season). Jay was one of those type of players that when you look at someone in our age group, someone that could log a lot of minutes, he's an iron man obviously playing 600-plus games. He’s a workhorse, he's everything that we had hoped to find."

Sabres trade defenseman Regehr to Kings

Tuesday, 04.02.2013 / 12:08 AM / 2013 Trade Deadline

NHL.com

The Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup last season with veteran defensemen Willie Mitchell and Matt Greene patrolling their blue line and playing important minutes. Mitchell and Greene are injured and may not play again this season, so Kings general manager Dean Lombardi went about trying to replace some of that experienced grit by acquiring Robyn Regehr from the Buffalo Sabres on Monday night.

The Kings gave the Sabres two second-round draft picks -- one in the 2014 NHL Draft and the other in the 2015 draft -- in exchange for Regehr, 6-foot-3, 225-pound blueliner who played in the 2004 Stanley Cup Final with the Calgary Flames.

The deal is contingent on Regehr passing a physical.

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
