NHL trade deadline: Complete list of every move

NHL trade deadline day arrived Monday.

Right before the 3 p.m. cutoff point, the Flyers sent Wayne Simmonds to the Predators (see story).

There was plenty of activity across the league, so let's look at all of the moves:

Hey, another Jets trade

6:02 p.m. — Winnipeg added depth by acquiring center Alex Broadhurst from the Blue Jackets for future considerations.

Broadhurst owns 330 games of AHL experience.

The Jets made six trades on the day.

Jets make another move

5:27 p.m. — Winnipeg traded for defenseman Nathan Beaulieu, sending away another draft pick, this one a 2019 sixth-round selection to the Sabres.

Beaulieu, the 17th overall pick of the 2011 draft, has seven points in 30 games this season.

Jets get Lindholm from Leafs

5:10 p.m. — Par Lindholm went from one playoff contender to another as the Jets acquired the forward from the Maple Leafs for center Nic Petan.

Lindholm has played 61 games in his first NHL season, while Petan played 108 games over four seasons in Winnipeg.

Del Zotto back with Schenn

5 p.m. — Former Flyer Michael Del Zotto will join his third team of the season and reunite with Brayden Schenn as the Blues acquired the defenseman from the Ducks for a 2019 sixth-round pick.

From Jan. 23 to Feb. 19, St. Louis won 11 straight games and now sits in playoff position.

Kiselevich joins Jets frenzy

4:47 p.m. — Winnipeg added a defenseman with KHL and NHL experience by trading a 2021 seventh-round pick to the Panthers for Bogdan Kiselevich.

The 29-year-old has eight points over 32 games in his first NHL season.

Wideman finds his 4th team

4:31 p.m. — Chris Wideman has played for the Senators, Oilers and Panthers this season and next up are the Penguins, who acquired the defenseman from Florida in exchange for center Jean-Sebastien Dea.

The Panthers will be Dea's third club this season.

Penguins nab a blueliner

4:30 p.m. — The Penguins are banged up on defense, so they added Erik Gudbranson from the Canucks in exchange for forward Tanner Pearson.

Gudbranson was a minus-27 in 57 games with Vancouver, while Pearson is headed to his third team this season.

Jets bring back a veteran

4:01 p.m. — The Central Division-leading Jets brought back 37-year-old forward Matt Hendricks from the Wild in exchange for a 2020 seventh-round pick.

Hendricks, who has 603 games under his belt, appeared in 60 last season for Winnipeg.

Bruins bring in Johansson

4 p.m. — The Bruins are eyeing a long postseason run and supplemented it by acquiring winger Marcus Johansson from the Devils in exchange for a 2019 second-round pick and a 2020 fourth-round selection.

Johansson, who has 27 points in 48 games this season, can become an unrestricted free agent in the offseason. Boston was also a possible suitor for Simmonds.

Sharks, Canucks make prospect swap

3:50 p.m. — The Sharks and Canucks swapped prospects as San Jose acquired Jonathan Dahlen from Vancouver in exchange for Linus Karlsson.

Dahlen has 29 points in the AHL this season, while Karlsson is a 19-year-old playing in Sweden.

Simmonds era in Philly ends

3:05 p.m. — Flyers general manager Chuck Fletcher eventually pulled the trigger on a Simmonds deal, acquiring winger Ryan Hartman and a 2020 fourth-round draft pick from Nashville, which turns into a third-rounder if the Predators win a first-round playoff series.

A pending unrestricted free agent, Simmonds played eight seasons in Philadelphia and was beloved by Flyers fans for his toughness and loyalty.

He was a productive player, too. He scored 30-plus goals in back-to-back seasons from 2015-17, was the league's second-best power-play goal scorer to only Alex Ovechkin and was named the 2017 All-Star Game MVP. Overall, he played 584 regular-season games with the Flyers and scored 203 goals.

Senators unload Stone

2:44 p.m. — Ottawa continued its deconstruction by sending leading scorer Mark Stone to the Golden Knights for Oscar Lindberg, Erik Brannstrom and a 2020 second-round pick.

The defending Western Conference champs got a whole lot better with the move as Stone has 28 goals and 34 assists in 59 games this season. According to The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun, Stone said on TSN that he and Vegas have agreed to terms on an extension.

Predators land Granlund

2:40 p.m. — On top of Simmonds, Nashville also acquired Mikael Granlund from the Wild in exchange for winger Kevin Fiala.

Granlund, 26, is under contract next season and has 49 points in 63 games this season.

Flames bring in D help

2:32 p.m. — The Western Conference-leading Flames can really score the puck. At the deadline, they added to their defense by acquiring Oscar Fantenberg from the Kings in exchange for a conditional 2020 fourth-round pick.

Fantenberg, 27, has played 46 games this season, his second in the NHL.

Blue Jackets keep adding

1:53 p.m. — Columbus stayed busy Monday. The Blue Jackets tacked on in the afternoon by acquiring defenseman Adam McQuaid from the Rangers in exchange for a 2019 fourth-round pick and 2019 seventh-round pick.

McQuaid brings 498 games of experience to Columbus, a team the Flyers are trying to catch in the playoff race.

Avalanche snare Brassard

1:34 p.m. — Colorado entered Monday one point out of the Western Conference's second wild-card spot. To help with the playoff push, the Avalanche traded with the Panthers for center Derick Brassard. In the deal, Colorado also received a conditional 2020 sixth-round pick, while sending Florida a 2020 third-round selection.

Brassard, who has 19 points in 50 games, was traded from the Penguins to the Panthers earlier this month.

Panthers acquire an AHL forward

12:30 p.m. — The Panthers added forward Cliff Pu from the Hurricanes in exchange for future considerations.

Pu had six points in 44 games for AHL affiliate Charlotte.

Former Flyer Weal traded again

11:40 a.m. — Jordan Weal is on the move again. After being traded from the Flyers to the Coyotes in January, Weal was shipped to the Canadiens in exchange for center Michael Chaput.

The 26-year-old pending unrestricted free agent had one goal and one assist in 19 games with Arizona, playing only 10:57 minutes per game.

Rangers send Hayes to Jets

11:11 a.m. — After trading forward Mats Zuccarello to the Stars on Saturday, the Rangers dealt another one of their top scorers, sending winger Kevin Hayes to the Jets for a 2019 first-round pick, forward Brendan Lemieux and a conditional 2022 fourth-round pick.

Hayes was third on the Rangers with 42 points (14 goals, 28 assists) in 51 games.

Blue Jackets add Kinkaid

9:33 a.m. — The Blue Jackets are fighting to secure a playoff berth and added goalie depth for the stretch run by acquiring Keith Kinkaid from the Devils for a 2022 fifth-round pick.

Kinkaid, a 29-year-old set to be an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, gives Columbus some insurance behind Sergei Bobrovsky.

Ducks, Senators make deal

12:28 a.m. — The NHL bottom-feeding Senators continued their moves, sending defenseman Patrick Sieloff to the Ducks for left winger Brian Gibbons. 

Gibbons has played 44 games this season, while Sieloff is a 24-year-old prospect.

Sharks acquire Nyquist

12:21 a.m. — The Sharks, in second place of the Pacific Division, added winger Gustav Nyquist from the Red Wings for a 2019 second-round pick and a 2020 third-round pick.

Nyquist has 49 points (16 goals, 33 assists) in 62 games this season.

Morgan Frost provides a highlight but Flyers are left looking for more answers following 4th straight loss

Morgan Frost provides a highlight but Flyers are left looking for more answers following 4th straight loss

BOX SCORE

Morgan Frost offered a snapshot of what the Flyers hope is a prosperous future for the skillful playmaker.

The present on Tuesday night did not depict as pretty of a picture.

The Flyers fell behind 4-1 during the second period, Carter Hart was yanked and a 5-2 loss to the Panthers at BB&T Center marked the final result.

Frost gave the Flyers a highlight on a night that didn't feature many for Alain Vigneault's club. The 2017 first-round pick deposited a dazzling goal in his NHL debut but the Flyers (10-7-4) dropped their fourth straight game, a losing skid that has come directly after a season-best four-game winning streak.

The Panthers (11-5-5) can score goals with the best teams in the NHL. They were also allowing 3.55 per game, fourth worst in the league, but kept the Flyers at bay.

• Hart had been so good in November. When he's not on his game, the Flyers can be exposed, which is exactly what happened against Florida.

The 21-year-old goalie entered 4-1-1 with a 1.77 goals-against average and .934 save percentage this month. He wasn't good Tuesday, the Flyers didn't help him and things unraveled.

The first period set the tone when the Panthers' first goal went off Andy Andreoff's stick. Then Hart allowed Brett Connolly to score from a crazy angle off the netminder's back.

Hart had allowed only one first-period goal over his previous five starts. Florida got him twice in the opening frame and ended his night midway through the second period with its fourth goal.

• The Flyers have now allowed more goals (61) than they've scored (60). During the four-game losing streak, they've scored 1.75 goals per game.

Vigneault continues to plead for more from his veterans. They simply have not answered his call and the Flyers are more than a quarter way into the season. The Flyers' record is very indicative of what they've received from their big boys.

Kevin Hayes recorded his first point in 10 games with a first-period assist on Travis Sanheim's goal. He played 19:01 minutes, four-plus at shorthanded. James van Riemsdyk went scoreless and played 12:56, his second-lowest ice time of the season. Jakub Voracek went scoreless, as well, in 15:31 minutes.

That trio has combined for 30 points in 21 games. The Flyers have to find a way to spark those three, along with Claude Giroux.

• Frost was a nice positive. He played with pace, he was active and was consistently a threat. His goal was very Frost-like.

Expect Vigneault to give him another game with Giroux and Travis Konecny.

• Joel Farabee made a costly turnover that led to Aleksander Barkov's second-period goal, which put the Flyers in a 3-1 hole. The Flyers were also slow to get back on the play. Bad all the way around (see highlights).

The 19-year-old was a minus-2 with three giveaways. He's a kid and there will be growing pains. Farabee snapped his stick in frustration when he went to the bench. Now it's a matter of seeing if he can play his way out of some struggles.

• Ivan Provorov and Matt Niskanen were a combined minus-5. Shayne Gostisbehere played only 14:33. While the Panthers pounced on mistakes, the Flyers couldn't fend them off or get much going at 5-on-5.

The Flyers went 0 for 2 on the power play.

• The Flyers stay on the road and visit the Hurricanes Thursday (7 p.m. ET/NBCSP).

Flyers' Morgan Frost scores first career NHL goal in filthy fashion

Flyers' Morgan Frost scores first career NHL goal in filthy fashion

When he received the news on Sunday that he was being called up to the Flyers, Morgan Frost thought about the hard work it took to make the NHL.

The kid scored 106 goals and 310 points in 257 junior hockey games for the OHL's Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. Over his final two seasons, he erupted for 221 points (79 goals, 142 assists) in 125 games.

That's a lot of scoring, which got him noticed.

“It’s obviously cliché, but it’s every kid’s dream, you dream about it growing up," Frost said Monday of being called up to make his NHL debut. "Honestly, after I got that call, I didn’t really know what to do for like an hour. So much joy, just so many things running through your head and everything you’ve worked for. Great feeling.”

Now he has the feeling of scoring his first career NHL goal. And, boy, did he show his skill while doing it Tuesday night against the Panthers at BB&T Center.

When the 20-year-old center gets in deep, he can make these types of plays on a goalie, even Sergei Bobrovsky.

Frost will always remember that one.
