NHL.com

The Pittsburgh Penguins acquired defenseman Ian Cole from the St. Louis Blues on Monday for defenseman Robert Bortuzzo and a seventh-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft.

Cole, the 18th pick in the 2007 NHL Draft by the Blues, has four goals, nine points and a plus-16 rating in 54 games this season. He has nine goals, 31 points and is plus-40 in 167 regular-season games over parts of five seasons.

"You're always hoping for more, but you look at St. Louis' defense and that's a very experienced, almost star-studded defense. So, you can understand why sometimes he may be in and out of the lineup," Penguins GM Jim Rutherford said. "He brings good depth to our blue line. He's had a very good year this year and we hope that continues here."

The St. Louis Blues acquired defenseman Zbynek Michalek from the Arizona Coyotes on Monday for center Maxim Letunov and a conditional third-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft. Michalek is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

The Coyotes will retain 50 percent of Michalek's salary, according to ESPN.com.

Michalek has not played since Feb. 14 because of an upper-body injury believed to be related to a concussion. He told Sportsnet that he's feeling better and has been doing exercise for three days, but he isn't skating yet and doesn't know when he'll be ready to play for the Blues.

"I don't want to say something or promise something and not be able to play, so it's hard to say," Michalek said. "I'm hopeful that I'll be to play soon."

NEW YORKOttawa Senators goaltender Andrew Hammond, Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban and Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin have been named the NHL's "Three Stars" for the week ending March 1.

FIRST STAR – ANDREW HAMMOND, G, OTTAWA SENATORS

He denied all 25 shots he faced to record his first career shutout in a 3-0 win over the Anaheim Ducks Feb. 25. Hammond followed that performance with a 35-save shutout in a 1-0 triumph over the Los Angeles Kings Feb. 26, becoming the second goaltender in NHL history to post consecutive road shutouts against the Ducks and Kings (Steve Mason: Dec. 29-31, 2008). He then capped the week with 28 saves in a 4-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks Feb. 28, helping the Senators complete a sweep of their road trip through California and extend their overall winning streak to a season-high five games. The 27-year-old White Rock, B.C., native has started all five games for the club during its current run, becoming the first goaltender in Senators history to win each of his first five career starts. Overall, he is 5-0-0 with a 1.18 goals-against average, .959 save percentage and two shutouts in seven career appearances.

Bergeron continues to strut Selke credentials

Monday, 03.02.2015 / 3:00 AM / Trophy Tracker

Evan Sporer - NHL.com Staff Writer

With three-quarters of the 2014-15 season complete, NHL.com looks at some of the biggest storylines and award contenders.

During his second shift against the Chicago Blackhawks on Feb. 22, Patrice Bergeron hopped over the boards and turned a normally routine play for his opponents into a goal for the Boston Bruins.

Each team was in the midst of changing its forwards. As Chicago forward Patrick Sharp left the puck for Brent Seabrook, Bergeron sped into the zone, first in on the forecheck. Seabrook was buying time, waiting for the Blackhawks to get a new forward unit on the ice, but Bergeron's efforts expedited the play. Seabrook was forced to fire a cross-ice pass to Michal Rozsival, who was quickly met by Bergeron. Rozsival was hurried into attempting a difficult outlet pass, Chicago turned over the puck, and the Bruins went the other way, with Bergeron ending the sequence by tipping home a pass from Reilly Smith.

These kinds of plays are routine for Bergeron, the best defensive forward in all of hockey, and the Selke Trophy favorite at the quarter pole of the 2014-15 season.
