Islanders' pair understands likelihood of trade

Monday, 03.03.2014 / 2:30 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

SYOSSET, N.Y. -- As practice wound down Monday morning, New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano had a long talk near center ice with defenseman Andrew MacDonald. After working together for seven years, there's a good chance MacDonald will be moved prior to the NHL Trade Deadline on Wednesday at 3 p.m. ET.

"We were just reflecting on a lot of things," MacDonald said. "We don't really know what's going to happen here, so [he was] just asking how my girlfriend and I were holding up and how we were doing. Jack's a great guy and very genuine. He was just concerned about how I was doing."

MacDonald, 27, can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. With no new contract in place and the Islanders all but eliminated from playoff contention, New York general manager Garth Snow will likely trade MacDonald and left wing Thomas Vanek before the deadline.

CHICAGO -- Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford is just shaking his head in disbelief at this point.

First a specially-painted mask that he was supposed to wear this past Saturday night at Soldier Field in the final game of the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series never arrived. Now, his regular white-based goalie pads and accompanying gear are missing.

Crawford practiced Monday morning at United Center wearing the black gear with red trim that he wore in the Blackhawks' 5-1 victory against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night. Asked afterward if he'd ever located the mask, Crawford shook his head.

Terms were not disclosed, but ESPN's Pierre LeBrun reports it's worth $2.3 million per season.

Scrivens was traded from the Toronto Maple Leafs to the Los Angeles Kings in the offseason in the Jonathan Bernier trade. The Oilers acquired him in mid-January for a third-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft.

"It's a great opportunity. Now the real work begins," said Scrivens, an Alberta native. "It's great to be here in Edmonton playing at home."

The most decorated goalie in NHL history, the captain of one of the League's most celebrated franchises, and one of the grittiest centers in the game might all have to change their addresses later this week.

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks will be without forward Marian Hossa for up to three weeks with an upper-body injury that happened this past Saturday night at Soldier Field in the final 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game.

Hossa was hit hard by Pittsburgh Penguins forward Craig Adams while playing the puck behind the Pittsburgh net with 6:48 left in the first period and skated slowly to the bench. He remained seated for the rest of the period and didn't return to the ice.

"Probably two-to-three weeks we're looking at," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said after practice Monday at United Center. "There's going to be some quality ice time shared amongst the guys [now]."

Matt Sitkoff - NHL.com Contributor

Wednesday at 3 p.m. ET marks the NHL Trade Deadline, and after the dust settles will come a flurry of waiver wire activity and trades in fantasy hockey, as players' stocks rise and new opportunities arise.

The big names in play include Ryan Kesler (Vancouver Canucks), Ryan Callahan (New York Rangers), Thomas Vanek (New York Islanders) and Matt Moulson (Buffalo Sabres). If traded, it won’t change that they are great fantasy plays. Sometimes it is the under-the-radar moves that can provide a spark for your team.

On Feb. 28, 2011, the Sabres acquired Brad Boyes from the St. Louis Blues and he went on to score 14 points in 21 games. On Feb. 27, 2012, the Colorado Avalanche acquired Jamie McGinn from the San Jose Sharks and he finished the season with 13 points in his final 17 games. On April 3 of last season it was Jussi Jokinen, acquired by the Pittsburgh Penguins from the Carolina Hurricanes, who finished the year with 11 points in 10 games.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
