Red Wings to shut down Datsyuk for three weeks

Wednesday, 03.05.2014 / 7:08 PM / News

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

DETROIT -- The hits keep coming for the Detroit Red Wings, who will be without two-thirds of their top line for nearly all of the regular season.

After already losing captain Henrik Zetterberg for the rest of the season following back surgery in February, the Red Wings are shutting down top center Pavel Datsyuk for at least three weeks to rest his ailing left knee.

Detroit general manager Ken Holland broke the news Wednesday at Joe Louis Arena not long after reaching an agreement with the Nashville Predators to acquire 33-year old veteran center David Legwand.

NEW YORK -- New York Rangers general manager Glen Sather and coach Alain Vigneault each believe their team is better now than when Wednesday started.

In their first comments regarding the NHL Trade Deadline transaction that sent forward Ryan Callahan and draft picks to the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for wing Martin St. Louis, Sather and Vigneault were excited about the deal exchanging captains.

"We're adding a player that's got great presence. He's won a [Stanley] Cup. He's just come back and won a gold medal for Canada. So we're bringing in a real solid player and a real solid individual," Vigneault said before the game Wednesday against the Toronto Maple Leafs. "We're losing [Callahan's] grit and fire on the ice, but we're adding some other very important parts to our team. I really believe this makes us a better team."


Canucks hang on to Kesler, deal Diaz to Rangers

Wednesday, 03.05.2014 / 6:32 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER -- The Vancouver Canucks were busy right before the NHL Trade Deadline on Wednesday, but the transaction announced wasn't the one most expected.

The Canucks sent depth defenseman Raphael Diaz to the New York Rangers in exchange for a fifth-round pick, but hung onto center Ryan Kesler despite widespread speculation he would be dealt.

Vancouver general manager Mike Gillis refused several times to get into specifics, or even talk about Kesler in particular despite a report from TSN's Darren Dreger that as many as six teams were interested in the 2011 Selke Trophy-winning center. The strongest speculation involved the Pittsburgh Penguins, including a report in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that had center Brandon Sutter, two picks in the 2014 NHL Draft, and one of two defensive prospects offered up.


Despite trade rumors, Brodeur remains with Devils

In the end, the best deal for New Jersey Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello was not making a trade involving goalie Martin Brodeur.

Brodeur's name surfaced during the past month as a potential target of Stanley Cup Playoff contenders heading into the 2014 NHL Trade Deadline. Brodeur spoke of a lack of playing time and a desire to see more action. There were reports he was willing to waive his no-trade clause.

It never happened.

The only trade the Devils completed Wednesday was the acquisition of forward Tuomo Ruutu from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for center Andrei Loktionov and a conditional 2017 third-round pick.

"Our intention certainly was to try and get a top-nine forward with a lot of grit, who competes and who has a habit of playing in big games," Lamoriello told The (Newark) Star-Ledger. "We've played against [Ruutu] enough over the years. We feel good about it."

RECORD: 24-9-4

PHILADELPHIA -- The Washington Capitals on Wednesday acquired goaltender Jaroslav Halak and a third-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft in a trade with the Buffalo Sabres for goaltender Michal Neuvirth and defenseman Rostislav Klesla.

Halak joined the Sabres on Friday as part of the trade that sent Ryan Miller and Steve Ott to the St. Louis Blues. Halak leaves Buffalo without playing a game for the Sabres; he was the backup to Jhonas Enroth on Monday against the Dallas Stars.

"He's played well in Montreal, he's played well in St. Louis, and we hope he can come here and play well," Capitals general manager George McPhee told reporters at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, Va. "He's a good goalie and he can get hot. The objective was to try to upgrade the tandem and we did."


Canadiens prospect Bozon in critical condition

Wednesday, 03.05.2014 / 5:36 PM / News


Montreal Canadiens forward prospect Tim Bozon, 19, remained in critical condition at the Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan with a form of acute bacterial meningitis Wednesday, according to a statement released by the Western Hockey League.

Bozon, who plays in the WHL with the Kootenay Ice, was admitted to the hospital Saturday, a day after he scored a goal in 4-2 victory against the Saskatoon Blades.

Bozon, a 2012 third-round pick (No. 64) of the Canadiens, wasn't feeling well and was admitted to the hospital where he was diagnosed with neisseria meningitis. The WHL said public health officials were trying to ensure that anyone who made contact with the team and player was receiving proper medical treatment.


Panthers trade goalie Thomas to Stars

Wednesday, 03.05.2014 / 5:19 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline


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 to Canadiens by Islanders

Wednesday, 03.05.2014 / 4:56 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline


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 Los Angeles Kings have acquired Marian Gaborik from the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The Columbus Blue Jackets traded right wing Marian Gaborik to the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday.

Matt Frattin, a second-round pick and a third-round pick are heading back to the Blue Jackets in the trade. The third-round pick turns into a second-round pick if the Kings win one round in the Stanley Cup Playoffs or if Gaborik, an upcoming unrestricted free agent, re-signs with L.A., according to the Columbus Dispatch.
