Rangers land Klingberg, Sheppard in separate trades

Sunday, 03.01.2015 / 8:35 PM / 2015 NHL Trade Deadline

NHL.com

The New York Rangers weren't done after they acquired defenseman Keith Yandle from the Arizona Coyotes on Sunday.

Rangers general manager Glen Sather later made two more trades, acquiring forward Carl Klingberg from the Winnipeg Jets for forward Lee Stempniak, and center James Sheppard from the San Jose Sharks for a fourth-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft.

Klingberg, 24, had been reassigned to St. John's of the American Hockey League earlier Sunday. He did not have a point in two games for Winnipeg this season and had 15 goals and 15 assists in 51 AHL games. He was selected by the Atlanta Thrashers in the second round (No. 34) of the 2009 NHL Draft.

Rangers acquire defenseman Yandle from Coyotes

Sunday, 03.01.2015 / 7:14 PM / 2015 NHL Trade Deadline

The New York Rangers acquired defensemen Keith Yandle and Chris Summers and a fourth-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft from the Arizona Coyotes on Sunday for defenseman John Moore, forward prospect Anthony Duclair, a second-round pick, and a conditional first-round pick.

The Rangers, who advanced to the Stanley Cup Final against the Los Angeles Kings before losing in five games, are again among the top teams in the Eastern Conference this season. They are second in the Metropolitan Division, two points behind the New York Islanders. The Rangers are five points behind the Montreal Canadiens for the top spot in the East and hold a game in hand.

Rangers general manager Glen Sather addressed their blue-line depth with this trade. Yandle, who has one year remaining on his contract, is considered to be among the game's better offensive defenseman.

Yandle also is not a rental player, which is the commodity most often moved before the NHL Trade Deadline, which is Monday.

Capitals acquire Glencross from Flames for draft picks

Sunday, 03.01.2015 / 7:14 PM / 2015 NHL Trade Deadline

Adam Vingan - NHL.com Correspondent

WASHINGTON – In need of an experienced forward with top-six ability, the Washington Capitals acquired Curtis Glencross from the Calgary Flames on Sunday for two picks in the 2015 NHL Draft.

Capitals coach Barry Trotz welcomed the addition of Glencross.

"I think we need to get a little bit deeper at the forward position," he said. "We have a good forward group. We’ve got four young players there, and I don’t think you can ever be deep enough at any position as you’re going into the playoffs. After (the NHL Trade Deadline) tomorrow, you really don’t have any opportunity to add, so I think that’s why most teams want to do that.

Blackhawks go all in for third Cup title in six years

Sunday, 03.01.2015 / 7:07 PM / 2015 NHL Trade Deadline

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- The message Chicago Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman sent with two trades this weekend was clear: He expects to win the Stanley Cup despite losing right wing Patrick Kane for an estimated 12 weeks with a fractured left clavicle.

Bowman traded for defenseman Kimmo Timonen on Friday, then acquired center Antoine Vermette on Saturday. That he got the skilled veterans without trading any players off the Blackhawks roster said it all.

"[It] means a lot," left wing Patrick Sharp said after practicing with Timonen on Sunday. "Both guys are well-respected players across the League. Tip the cap to Stan and the management for improving our team. We're excited to play [Monday]."

Vokoun returns to Nashville, reflects on career

Sunday, 03.01.2015 / 11:05 AM / NHL Insider

Robby Stanley - NHL.com Correspondent

NASHVILLE -- Longtime NHL goaltender Tomas Vokoun returned to Nashville this past week to be honored after spending eight seasons as a member of the Nashville Predators from 1998-2007.

Vokoun was honored by Nashville during its game Thursday against the Minnesota Wild and participated in an alumni game against the Detroit Red Wings alumni following Nashville’s game against Detroit on Saturday. Vokoun led Nashville’s alumni to a 9-8 shootout win.

Vokoun played in 700 games in 15 seasons before deciding to retire this past December. While there are some aspects of being an NHL player that he said he misses, Vokoun doesn’t have any regrets about making the decision to retire.

“When I was retiring, two things happened,” Vokoun said. “I still felt like I could have played at a high level, but I also understood the role I would have or the opportunities I had in the market, where I would kind of stand. I thought it was work for me to leave my family for eight months and being the guy who’s maybe a few months here and a few months there.

“Truthfully I’m not sure what my answer should be. I do not miss playing. I think I miss a lot of parts of being a hockey player and being with the guys every day and the comradery, traveling and all that. I do not miss dressing up every day and getting hit with the puck 700 times. When things aren’t going well, obviously a lot of pressure and stuff like that. I don’t have that now. I have different kinds of pressures.”

Vermette trade the first chip for rebuilding Coyotes

Sunday, 03.01.2015 / 10:21 AM / 2015 NHL Trade Deadline

Jerry Brown - NHL.com Correspondent

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Arizona Coyotes general manager Don Maloney accomplished two major goals Saturday, earning a good return for coveted center Antoine Vermette, and saving enough time before the 2015 NHL Trade Deadline on Monday to further reshape a rebuilding franchise.

Vermette was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks late Saturday for a first-round pick and defenseman Klas Dahlbeck, who was playing in the American Hockey League.

“Antoine was one of our biggest chips and we needed to get a good return,” Maloney said. “We like the deal and it helps us line up some other opportunities. Now we have two days to say, ‘OK, let’s look at these other deals and see what we can get done.

“We have lots of irons in the fire.”

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
