2011 Trade Deadline

Report: Panthers send Allen to 'Canes for Samsonov

Monday, 02.28.2011 / 2:09 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline

The Carolina Hurricanes reportedly have added a second veteran from the Florida Panthers in the past five days, acquiring defenseman Bryan Allen for forward Sergei Samsonov.

Allen has 4 goals and 12 points in 53 games for the Panthers this season. Carolina had a spot on its blue line open after trading defenseman Ian White to San Jose for a second-round pick earlier this month. Allen has one year left on his contract that carries a $2.9 million cap hit.

Oilers, Avalanche swap minor-league defensemen

Monday, 02.28.2011 / 1:30 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline

The Edmonton Oilers have announced that they have sent minor-league defenseman Shawn Belle to the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for fellow minor-league defenseman Kevin Montgomery.

Belle, who signed a one-year deal with the Oilers last July, had 3 goals, 20 points and 61 penalty minutes in 39 games with the Oklahoma City Barons of the American Hockey League this campaign. He also had no points in five appearances with the Oilers.

Coyotes acquire Klesla in multi-player deal

Monday, 02.28.2011 / 1:20 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline

The Phoenix Coyotes have sent forward Scottie Upshall and defenseman Sami Lepisto to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for defenseman Rostislav Klesla and minor-league forward Dane Byers.

Klesla was the first draft pick in Blue Jackets' franchise history (No. 4 in 2000) and has spent his entire career in Columbus, playing 515 games dating back to his debut in the 2000-01 season. Phoenix GM Don Maloney was looking to upgrade his defense and get some depth with the uncertainty surrounding Ed Jovanovski's return from orbital bone surgery.

Stars choose to hang onto Richards

Monday, 02.28.2011 / 1:00 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline

Dallas Stars center Brad Richards said he woke up Monday morning and went to work at the team's practice site in Frisco, Texas, the same way he would if it were any other day as he continues his rehabilitation from a concussion. And the plan Tuesday is to do the same thing.

Once 3 p.m. ET came and went, Richards could carve those plans into stone.

"Nothing happened today and I'm good with that," Stars General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk said. "I look at our team and I think we've played well lately and we're going to add Brad Richards and (defenseman) Nick Grossman (hip injury), so we're pleased.

Despite being one of the most talked about players in the days and hours leading to Monday's 3 p.m. ET trade deadline, the Dallas Stars decided to hold onto Richards and make a run at a playoff spot whenever the star center returns from the concussion that has sidelined him for more than two weeks.

Thrashers deal for Dvorak; re-sign Stuart

Monday, 02.28.2011 / 12:34 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline

John Manasso - Correspondent

ATLANTA -- The Thrashers moved Monday to retain a newly-acquired piece whom they seem to like and to part with one who was having trouble finding his place in the organization.

They re-signed defenseman Mark Stuart, 26, to what the team called a "multiple-year contract." The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported the deal was three years and $5.1 million.

They also traded right wing Niclas Bergfors, 23, a member of the 2010 All-Rookie team, to Florida for right wing Radek Dvorak, who will be 34 next week.

In four games with Atlanta, Stuart has been even twice and minus-1 twice. He has averaged 14:38 during the past three games and become a mainstay on the penalty kill, a unit that ranked No. 28 entering Sunday's games. During those three games, the Thrashers have not allowed a power-play goal, killing all 12 chances.

Wideman hopes to help solve Caps' PP woes

Monday, 02.28.2011 / 11:47 AM / 2011 Trade Deadline

Ben Raby - Correspondent

ARLINGTON, Va. -- Dennis Wideman says that he doesn't see the Washington Capitals' struggling power play remaining in its current funk for much longer. Should the fortunes of the NHL's 25th ranked power play unit in fact change, Wideman could be a big reason why.
The former Florida Panthers defenseman was traded to Washington on Monday in exchange for prospect Jake Hauswirth and the Capitals' 2011 third round draft pick. Later in the day, the Caps reportedly added center Jason Arnott in a trade with the Devils for David Steckel.
"The power play has been struggling a little bit of late, but it won't last long with the amount of guys they have out there," Wideman said in a conference call shortly after his trade was completed. "Hopefully I can get on [the power play] and I'll do my best when I am out there. But they've got a lot of depth there and we'll be fine on the power play."

Sabres acquire Boyes from St. Louis

Sunday, 02.27.2011 / 11:49 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline

Hoping to bolster their offense, the Buffalo Sabres acquired forward Brad Boyes from the St. Louis Blues on Sunday night in exchange for a second-round pick at the 2011 Entry Draft.

Boyes, 28, has 12 goals and 29 assists in 62 games for the Blues this season. He scored 43 goals for the club in 2007-08 and followed that up with 33 tallies in 2008-09.

But Boyes hasn't matched that offense since. The former first-round pick (Toronto, 2000) scored only 14 goals for the Blues in 2009-10 and scored only two goals in the month of February.

Phillips happy to be staying put with Senators

Sunday, 02.27.2011 / 1:41 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

KANATA, Ont. -- No more than 10 minutes after signing his name on the piece of paper that confirms he isn't going anywhere, a visibly relieved Chris Phillips said he doesn't feel the Ottawa Senators rebuilding process will last as long as everyone thinks it will.

At around 9:30 p.m. Sunday night Phillips chose to forego unrestricted free agency and took his name off the board for Monday's trade deadline by coming to terms with Senators GM Bryan Murray on a three-year, $9.25 million contract, keeping the rugged defenseman with the same franchise that drafted him with the first pick in the 1996 Entry Draft.

He actually signed the new contract after practice Monday morning, about three hours before the trade deadline and just before meeting reporters to say how confident he feels about the short-term future of the Senators.

Panthers trade Bryan McCabe to Rangers

Saturday, 02.26.2011 / 5:39 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline

Corey Masisak - Staff Writer

The New York Rangers have added an offensive boost to their defense corps by acquiring veteran Bryan McCabe from the Florida Panthers for Tim Kennedy and a third-round pick in the 2011 Entry Draft.

McCabe has 5 goals and 22 points for the Panthers this season, but he also missed time with a broken jaw. The 35-year-old McCabe has reached double digits in goals five times in his career and was second on the Panthers in both points and plus-minus (+3) among their defensemen.
