Six goalies moved ahead of NHL Trade Deadline

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 9:15 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Goaltenders have been the hardest players to move before the NHL Trade Deadline during the past few years because the supply has far exceeded the demand.

Not anymore. At least not this year.

Goalies dominated trade discussion in the past few days, and they were all over the news Tuesday afternoon when four, most notably Roberto Luongo, were traded in a span of a few hours. Six goalies have been moved since Friday, including three who are scheduled to be unrestricted free agents after the season.

NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr moved into ninth place on the NHL's all-time assists list Tuesday against the Detroit Red Wings at Prudential Center.

Jagr picked up the 1,041st of his career on Travis Zajac's goal at 6:30 of the third period, moving him past Marcel Dionne. He is eight assists behind Gordie Howe (1,049) for eighth on the all-time list. Zajac's goal gave the Devils a 3-2 lead.

Jagr, who turned 42 on Feb. 15, has 700 goals and 1,741 points in 1,453 career games spanning 19-plus NHL seasons.


Capitals acquire Penner from Ducks

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 8:24 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline


The Washington Capitals on Tuesday acquired forward Dustin Penner from the Anaheim Ducks, adding a veteran with postseason experience to their push for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Ducks get back a fourth-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft which they had previously traded to the Capitals.

The 31-year-old, who can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, said he hopes to be in the lineup when the Capitals visit the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday night and added that he had no indication he was about to be traded.


Tallon: Panthers made statement with Luongo deal

SUNRISE, Fla. -- For the Florida Panthers, bringing goaltender Roberto Luongo back to South Florida was about making a statement.

That was the message from general manager Dale Tallon, who said he consummated the four-player trade with the Vancouver Canucks after getting the go-ahead from owner Vinnie Viola, partner Doug Cifu, and new president/CEO Rory Babich, who took over on Monday.

"It is huge," Tallon said in a conference call Tuesday night. "He's a big name down here and it sets the tone for our franchise. Vinnie and Doug and Rory and I want to win the Stanley Cup, and talk is cheap, so we're acting and we're following up on what we said we would do. We're just looking to get better every day to achieve our goal of winning the Stanley Cup."

As other examples, Tallon pointed to the recent trade for former Chicago Blackhawks second-round pick Brandon Pirri and the re-signing of veteran forward Brad Boyes to a two-year contract. But those moves paled in comparison to the trade that brought Luongo for a second stint with the Panthers.

The Vancouver Canucks have finally traded goaltender Roberto Luongo, moving him to the Florida Panthers on Tuesday.

Vancouver traded Luongo and forward Steven Anthony to Florida for goalie Jacob Markstrom and forward Shawn Matthias.

Luongo has been the subject of trade rumors since losing his starting job to Cory Schneider during the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"Stunned I think. I was not expecting it," Luongo told reporters in Phoenix. "It caught me off guard. [I'm] just happy for myself and my family and obviously a little sad to be leaving Vancouver."


Hurricanes sign Khudobin to two-year extension

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 5:39 PM / News


The Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday agreed to a two-year, $4.5 million contract extension with goaltender Anton Khudobin.

The deal will pay Khudobin $2 million for the 2014-15 season and $2.5 million in 2015-16.

"We are pleased to be able to keep Anton with the Hurricanes," general manager Jim Rutherford said. "He has played well this season and signing him helps solidify our team's goaltending situation."

Flames' Burke exploring options as deadline looms

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 5:22 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline

Aaron Vickers - NHL.com Correspondent

CALGARY -- Make no mistake, Brian Burke isn't in the position he wants to be heading into the NHL Trade Deadline.

"I like buying a lot more than I like selling," said Burke, president of hockey operations and acting general manager of the Calgary Flames, who addressed the media Tuesday in advance of the deadline at 3 p.m. ET Wednesday. "It could be a very important day for the franchise, the next 24 hours, but it's not the same as when you're adding to try to make a push."

With plenty of salary cap space and even more capital at his disposal on a team that sits 27th in the League, Burke admitted his Flames are more than willing to play bank for teams pushed against the ceiling.


Wild add veteran goalie Bryzgalov from Oilers

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 5:12 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline


The Minnesota Wild on Tuesday acquired goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov from the Edmonton Oilers in a trade for a fourth-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft.

“Bryzgalov is a quality veteran that adds depth to the goaltending position for our team," Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher said in a statement.


Ducks show they're all in with trade for Robidas

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 5:09 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

Anaheim Ducks general manager Bob Murray sent a message Tuesday that he's all in, and yet it's possible he could have more cards in his hand.

"The phones are still ringing and I'm still making calls," Murray told reporters after he made a series of trades to ultimately acquire defenseman Stephane Robidas from the Dallas Stars.

"There's never a final move. You're always trying to make your hockey team better. This makes our team more difficult to play against. Just go ask our forwards. They didn't enjoy playing against this guy."

Robidas is exactly the player Anaheim needed to plug in on its blue line for the Stanley Cup Playoffs: a shutdown veteran hungry to win and a possible right-handed partner for Francois Beauchemin. Robidas broke his leg Nov. 29 and said Tuesday "the leg is feeling great" and "I'm hoping to be ready in about two weeks."

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.

— Brian Elliott to Jeremy Rutherford of the Post-Dispatch on being the Blues' No. 1 goalie
