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."

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 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.

The Winnipeg Jets have signed defenseman Mark Stuart to a four-year, $10.5 million contract extension.

The 29-year-old has two goals and nine points in 50 games this season.

"He is what the Winnipeg Jets are about," Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff said of Stuart's character.


Phillips signs two-year extension with Ottawa

Wednesday, 03.05.2014 / 2:49 PM / News


Ottawa Senators defenseman Chris Phillips agreed to a two-year contract extension Wednesday.

Phillips will make $2.25 million per year. Phillips was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season and was subject of discussion approaching the NHL Trade Deadline.

"I'm very excited about it," Phillips told the Senators website. "It's been going on for a little while as far as the talks. With the uncertainty of this day, if nothing happened what the alternatives were, that weighs on you. I'm very excited to get something done."


Lightning trade St. Louis to Rangers for Callahan

Wednesday, 03.05.2014 / 2:30 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline


The New York Rangers landed one of the best players available on NHL Trade Deadline day, acquiring forward Martin St. Louis from the Tampa Bay Lightning for forward Ryan Callahan, a first-round pick and a conditional second-round choice Wednesday.

Not only is it rare for teams to trade captains, but each team is among the contenders in the Eastern Conference. Tampa Bay general manager Steve Yzerman confirmed St. Louis had requested a trade, and Callahan will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.

The first-round pick is in the 2015 NHL Draft and the conditional second-round selection is in 2014. The second-round pick becomes a first-round pick if the Rangers reach the Eastern Conference Final this season. Also, if Callahan signs a contract with the Lightning, the Rangers would receive Tampa Bay's second-round pick in 2015 in exchange for New York's seventh-round choice in 2015.

"I think right now, you get down there and get settled and maybe get used to my surroundings, and then once that happens, I'm open to anything," Callahan told TSN. "If that's contract talks, it is, but if not, then we see what happens in July."


Sabres claim Conacher off waivers from Senators

Wednesday, 03.05.2014 / 1:57 PM / News


The Buffalo Sabres claimed forward Cory Conacher off waivers Wednesday.

Conacher had four goals and 16 assists in 60 games this season for the Ottawa Senators, who acquired him last year in a trade with the Tampa Bay Lightning for goalie Ben Bishop.

“To be able to play there in the NHL, it’s a dream come true," Conacher said. "At the same time, it's tough leaving Ottawa. They’re a great organization. They've done so much for me. They have a lot of good people that have helped me out and just the guys on the team are special guys. I was really close with a lot of them. They're a team that’s going to be really good in the future, you can tell."


Jets forward Scheifele out with MCL sprain

Patrick Williams - NHL.com Correspondent

WINNIPEG – Winnipeg Jets second-line center Mark Scheifele has an MCL sprain in his right knee, coach Paul Maurice said Wednesday, and his status will be updated in a few weeks.

TSN reported Scheifele would miss six-to-eight weeks after sustaining the injury in a loss to the New York Islanders on Tuesday in Winnipeg. He was injured 11:18 into the second period after a collision with Islanders defenseman Calvin de Haan, left the game and did not return.

The Jets medical staff evaluated Scheifele on Wednesday morning.

"It's all in how [quickly] this thing heals. You can check back with me in two or three weeks, and I'll give you a general idea of where we think it's at," Jets coach Paul Maurice said Wednesday at the team's practice rink. "There is a wide spectrum of [timelines] in terms of when [players] come back from these injuries, but it's never in three or four weeks, so you don't need to check back too soon."

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
