Hemsky scored two goals and was named the game's first star Tuesday in a 3-2 win against the Senators.

Hemsky, 30, has spent all 11 seasons in the NHL with the Oilers. He has been the target of trade rumors for the past few years. He was selected in the first round (No. 13) of the 2001 NHL Draft by Edmonton.

The Florida Panthers agreed to terms on a two-year contract extension with forward Brad Boyes, general manager Dale Tallon confirmed Tuesday night.

Boyes leads the Panthers with 17 goals and is tied for second with 28 points.

"We are pleased to have Brad back for the next two seasons," Tallon said. "He has played an important role in our club's offense this year, leading our team in goals, while also performing well in shootouts. We look forward to his continued contributions to our organization."

A first-round pick (No. 24) of the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2000 NHL Draft, the 31-year-old has career totals of 185 goals and 435 points in 665 games for the San Jose Sharks, Boston Bruins, St. Louis Blues, Buffalo Sabres, New York Islanders and Panthers.


On the 'D'-Fence: Trade deadline brings fantasy hope

Brian Metzer - NHL.com Correspondent

The NHL is always exciting, but it gets even more so a few days during the year. We'll call those days the "hockey holidays," and they come in the form of the NHL Draft, the start of free agency and the one we are celebrating Wednesday, the NHL Trade Deadline.

The hockey holidays provide an opportunity for all teams, be they buyers or sellers, to give their fans hope. The goal might be a Stanley Cup championship this season or the hopes of building toward one in a year or two, but hope is at the heart of it all.

That holds true for your fantasy team as well and you are probably gearing up for a trade deadline of your own, so today we'll look at a few defensemen who have been or could be moved and how they could help your team moving forward.


Over the Boards: Red Wings focused on playoff streak

Wednesday, 03.05.2014 / 3:00 AM / Over the Boards

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- The Detroit Red Wings were in the same situation last year as they are now. They were facing pressure to make the Stanley Cup Playoffs, to extend their record streak of postseason appearances, without much time to make sure it happened.

The Red Wings eventually had to win their final four regular-season games and get some help to make the playoffs for a 22nd straight season, but they pulled it off with Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk in the lineup.

Zetterberg and Datsyuk are watching these days, out of the lineup with injuries, so if Detroit is going to extend its playoff streak to 23 seasons, it will have to rely on something it hasn't had much patience for in previous seasons: youth.

"I think it's intriguing," Red Wings veteran defenseman Niklas Kronwall said Tuesday, a few hours before Detroit lost 4-3 to the New Jersey Devils. "The way these [young] guys have played, the way they have stepped up since getting the chance, it's great to see the confidence. They just want more and more."


Tale of the Tape: Flyers host Capitals

Wednesday, 03.05.2014 / 3:00 AM / Tale of the Tape

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

The Philadelphia Flyers would like nothing more than to complete a home-and-home sweep when they host the Washington Capitals in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry matchup (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN2). The Flyers rallied from a two-goal deficit in the third period to win 5-4 at Verizon Center on Sunday, enough to keep them ahead of a pack of five Metropolitan Division teams that are separated by three points.


Daily Primer March 5: Different look for Caps, Flyers

Wednesday, 03.05.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider


It's usually an intense showdown when the Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals get together, and it shouldn't be any different when the teams face off at Wells Fargo Center (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2).

But each team will have a bit of a different look after tweaking its rosters prior to the NHL Trade Deadline, which is set for 3 p.m. ET Wednesday.

Philadelphia enters the game in second place in the Metropolitan Division, but one point ahead of the New York Rangers and Columbus Blue Jackets and two ahead of the Capitals.

Here's a closer look at all the action Wednesday:


Rivalry Night Faceoff: Holtby vs. Mason

Wednesday, 03.05.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

To help celebrate NBC Rivalry Night, NHL.com will look at a rivalry within the rivalry of the featured game on Wednesday nights. For this week, we are trying to determine which goaltender is better equipped to backstop his team into the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Washington Capitals' Braden Holtby or the Philadelphia Flyers' Steve Mason.

The Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals enter their Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2) separated by two points in the standings. Each team features a high-scoring offense and a defense that has had questionable performances.

They also have one other thing in common. Each has a goaltender looking to prove he can backstop his team to a long run in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Can the Flyers' Steve Mason or the Capitals' Braden Holtby be that guy for his team?


Canucks take big risk by trading Luongo

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 11:49 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER -- In a little more than eight months, the Vancouver Canucks have gone from trying to choose between goaltenders Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider to having neither.

After shocking the hockey world, and both its goalies, by trading Schneider to the New Jersey Devils at the 2013 NHL Draft, Vancouver was at it again Tuesday. This time, they surprised even Luongo by sending him to the Florida Panthers, his former team, in a four-player trade on the eve of the NHL Trade Deadline.

Just like that, the best goalie in franchise history and his heir apparent are gone from the Canucks. In their place are rookie Eddie Lack and unproven prospect Jacob Markstrom, who was acquired from Florida along with center Shawn Matthias for Luongo and left wing Steven Anthony.

Just like that, Vancouver has gone from a proven veteran with almost 800 NHL games played, a run to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, and two Olympic gold medals, to two goalies with less than 70 games of combined experience in the NHL, no Stanley Cup Playoff experience, and lots of question marks.


Brodeur unsure he'll be with Devils after deadline

Tuesday, 03.04.2014 / 11:27 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- A sellout crowd of 16,592 fans packed Prudential Center on Tuesday night, and they were still chanting for their favorite goalie long after Martin Brodeur left the ice following the New Jersey Devils' 4-3 win against the Detroit Red Wings.

"We want Marty," they yelled in unison. "Marty, Marty, Marty…" they repeatedly chanted before and during the game.

If this was Brodeur's final game as a Devil, he went out in style, with his NHL-record 684th victory, all with the only franchise he has ever played for.

However, nobody, not even Brodeur, is sure if this was his final game with New Jersey because it's unclear if he will be traded before the NHL Trade Deadline at 3 p.m. ET Wednesday.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
