The Buffalo Sabres and Winnipeg Jets started the run-up to the 2015 NHL Trade Deadline with a bang Wednesday, completing a blockbuster trade that sends forward Evander Kane and defenseman Zach Bogosian to the Buffalo Sabres for a package that includes defenseman Tyler Myers, forward Drew Stafford, two prospects and a first-round pick.

"It’s nice to go somewhere where you feel wanted and you feel that they want to put you in a situation to have success," Kane told Pierre LeBrun of

Buffalo holds three first-round picks in the 2015 NHL Draft. The Sabres have previously acquired first-round picks in this draft from the New York Islanders and the St. Louis Blues. Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff said the Sabres will decide which pick is transferred to complete the trade.

"This was not a knee-jerk reaction," Cheveldayoff said, noting there was strong interest in Kane from several teams. "I'm excited what this trade brings to our organization. … I feel good with the 'now,' but I’m really excited about the prospects of the future in this whole deal."

SAN JOSE -- Goaltender Evgeni Nabokov's NHL career ended Wednesday where it began 15 years ago with the San Jose Sharks.

With his family and former Sharks teammates and coaches looking on, an emotional Nabokov announced his retirement from the League during a press conference at SAP Center.

"I thought I was going to have no problem talking, but I think I will," Nabokov said, fighting back tears.

The Sharks selected Nabokov in the ninth round (No. 219) of the 1994 NHL Draft out of Kazakhstan. He went on to play 10 seasons for San Jose, setting almost every major goaltending record in Sharks history.

Nabokov has the most wins (293) and shutouts (50), and played more games (563) than any other Sharks goaltender.

BUFFALO -- For the second straight season, the Buffalo Sabres have shaken up their roster in a big way near the NHL Trade Deadline.

The Sabres traded defenseman Tyler Myers, forward Drew Stafford, forward prospects Joel Armia and Brendan Lemieux and a 2015 first-round pick to the Winnipeg Jets for forward Evander Kane, defenseman Zach Bogosian and goaltender Jason Kasdorf.

"It was shocking," Sabres forward Marcus Foligno said. "Obviously Myers and [Stafford] have been here for a long time. They're great guys, good guys in the room. It's tough to see some good friends leave, but that's the business of this game and each day you just have to wake up and go with it."

Buffalo later traded goaltender Jhonas Enroth to the Dallas Stars for goaltender Anders Lindback and a conditional 2016 third-round pick.


Stars acquire goaltender Enroth from Sabres

Wednesday, 02.11.2015 / 4:36 PM / 2015 NHL Trade Deadline

The Dallas Stars have acquired goaltender Jhonas Enroth from the Buffalo Sabres in a trade for goaltender Anders Lindback and a conditional third-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft.

The trade comes at a time when the Stars might be seeking some relief for incumbent starting goalie Kari Lehtonen, who is tied for the NHL lead with 46 starts this season.

Enroth, 26, is in his sixth NHL season, all with the Sabres. He is 13-21-2 with a 3.27 goals-against average and .903 save percentage in 37 games this season. He is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.

"Jhonas is an extremely instinctive, experienced goaltender and head coach Lindy Ruff has a familiarity with his game," Dallas general manager Jim Nill said in a statement. "Going down the stretch, where we have five more back-to-back situations, it was important for us to have a game-tested goaltender to help balance the workload."

Patrick Williams - Correspondent

WINNIPEG -- Winnipeg Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff has built a reputation as a patient, exacting NHL executive with a very long-term view of his organization's growth.

Cheveldayoff spoke with the Winnipeg media Wednesday after the Jets' blockbuster trade that sent left wing Evander Kane, defenseman Zach Bogosian and prospect Jason Kasdorf to the Buffalo Sabres for defenseman Tyler Myers, forward Drew Stafford, forward prospects Joel Armia and Brendan Lemieux, and a first-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft.

"It was a situation where I wanted to look at the best interests of the organization, and there was an opportunity here to address something right now and to address something for the future," Cheveldayoff said.

"This was not a knee-jerk reaction. This was something that, any time you can put together something like this, it takes a lot of work. There was an abundance of caution that went through a lot of the decisions. There was an abundance of time that went through a lot of these things as well.

"I feel good with the now, but I'm really excited about the prospects of the future in this whole deal."

The Winnipeg Jets are a better team and deeper organizationally today than they were yesterday. This is the double-down people in the hockey world have been waiting for from Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff. He delivered it in game-changing fashion Wednesday.

"It just fit," Jets coach Paul Maurice told in a phone interview. "It fits what we're trying to do."

The Jets acquired defenseman Tyler Myers, right wing Drew Stafford, forward prospects Joel Armia and Brendan Lemieux and a first-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft from the Buffalo Sabres for forward Evander Kane, defenseman Zach Bogosian, and college goalie Jason Kasdorf, a junior at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

This trade works for the Jets on multiple fronts, which is why it's a home run for Cheveldayoff, his first in four seasons as Winnipeg's GM.

Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
