NHL Trade Buzz: Deadline day is here
Lightning flip Streit to Penguins
Mark Streit is on the move again, this time to the Pittsburgh Penguins, according to ESPN.
Shortly after acquiring Streit from the Philadelphia Flyers, the Lightning have apparently worked out a deal to sent Streit to Pittsburgh.
With defenseman Kris Letang dealing with an upper-body injury, Streit provides the Penguins insurance on the power play.
The Lightning will receive a fourth-round pick at the 2018 NHL Draft.
Fehr to Maple Leafs
The Toronto Maple Leafs have acquired forward Eric Fehr from the Pittsburgh Penguins, according to TSN.
Fehr, 31, has six goals and five assists in 52 games for the Penguins this season. He has 202 points in 561 regular-season games and eight goals and two assists in 60 Stanley Cup Playoff games.
Fehr provides the Maple Leafs with playoff experience; he played 23 postseason games for the Penguins last season, helping them win the Cup.
Duchene, Landeskog staying put
Bob McKenzie is reporting Avalanche general manager Joe Sakic would not be pressured into trading either player unless the prices were met.
Duchene has two years remaining on his contract, which carries an average annual value of $6 million. Landeskog, who is the Avalanche captain, still has four years left on his contract.
Lazar to Flames
Lazar, 22, was Ottawa’s first-round pick (No. 17) at the 2013 NHL Draft. He has one assist in 33 games this season.
Kostka, 31, has one assist in 15 NHL games this season and 12 points (one goal, 11 assists) in 46 games for Binghamton of the American Hockey League.
Jokipakka, 25, has a goal and five assists in 38 games for the Flames this season.
Lazar was a tremendous goal scorer during his junior days with Edmonton of the Western Hockey League. Perhaps a change of scenery will serve him well.
Parenteau to Predators
The Nashville Predators have acquired right wing PA Parenteau from the New Jersey Devils for a sixth-round draft pick, according to TSN.
Parenteau, 33, has 13 goals and 14 assists in 59 games this season. He can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.
Nashville gets a power-play specialist and a top-six player for a nice price. A good get for Predators general manager David Poile.
Filppula to Flyers, Streit to Lightning
The Philadelphia Flyers have acquired center Valtteri Filppula, a fourth-round pick in the 2017 NHL Draft and a conditional seventh-round pick this year from the Tampa Bay Lightning for defenseman Mark Streit.
Filppula, 32, has one year left remaining on his contract. He has seven goals and 27 assists in 59 games this season.
Streit, 39, can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. He has five goals and 16 assists in 49 games.
This is an interesting one, considering the Lightning and Flyers are still alive in the playoff race. Streit can bolster Tampa Bay’s power play; Filppula gives the Flyers another center who can contribute at both ends of the ice and isn’t a rental player.
Quincey to Blue Jackets
Quincey, 31, has four goals and eight assists in 53 games this season. He can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.
