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.

Eric Lindros reveals awesome insight on his career during Twitter Q&A

Eric Lindros reveals awesome insight on his career during Twitter Q&A

There are so many Eric Lindros memories.

During his playing days, No. 88 was a rare breed of size and skill. Lindros' blend of strengths would still be rare in today's game.

His dynamic was intimidating and imposing because of those strengths, so to hear Lindros open up about his toughest opponents is really cool.

"Big E" did just that in a question-and-answer session Sunday on his Twitter account.

It's awesome to see Lindros talk hockey with his fans. He has always respected the knowledgeable fan base in Philly.

"Flyers players are lucky to play in a city where the fans truly know the game of hockey, appreciate the little things and are of course rowdy, but also show heart," Lindros said on his jersey retirement night in January 2018.

Here were Lindros' interactions Sunday night and we look forward to the next time.

Predictions for who wins Flyers' 2019-20 Yanick Dupre Class Guy Award

Predictions for who wins Flyers' 2019-20 Yanick Dupre Class Guy Award

Going End to End today are NBC Sports Philadelphia's Brooke Destra, Katie Emmer, Taryn Hatcher and Jordan Hall.

The topic: Predicting who wins the Flyers' 2019-20 Yanick Dupre Class Guy Award, presented to the Flyer who best illustrates character, dignity and respect both on and off the ice.

Destra

The best part about the Flyers and their organization is that they are filled with top-notch people. Just about every player on the team could win this award. 

This year though, I’d have to go with Jakub Voracek. He is one of the most respected players on the ice but what stands out the most is the person he is off the ice. The person he is when the cameras aren’t on him. The person he is when it comes to being an ambassador for the phrase, "It’s more than just a game."

There are many examples from this season, but one of my favorites that simply showcases why Voracek should win the Yanick Dupre Class Guy Award dates back to Feb. 27-28, when the Flyers signed Blake Steigauf to a one-day contract.

All throughout this video, you catch glimpses of Voracek with Steigauf, but the one moment that stuck with me was the shot of him waiting for the 15-year-old to come off the ice and into the tunnel before heading back to the locker room. 

All class. 

Emmer

The Flyers' dressing room is full of players with good character and high respect for the game, so this one was hard for me. 

This season, I’m picking Matt Niskanen.   

Niskanen is a highly respected, veteran player in the league and general manager Chuck Fletcher knew that when he decided to bring him in during the offseason.  

Coming into this year, the 33-year-old had 14 NHL seasons under his belt, 10 playoff runs and a Stanley Cup in 2018 — he had the experience the blue line needed.  

Where I think Niskanen really exceeded expectations so far this season is the leadership he brings. He’s highly respected by his teammates and has some of the best well-rounded character you could ask for in your dressing room.

We’re all able to see the example he sets on the ice with the defensive group as well as the team as a whole. He has certainly helped with the Flyers’ success this season. On top of that, he sets an example off the ice by showing respect toward those around him, from the Flyers’ personnel to members of media.

He has been a great addition to the team and I believe he’s the most deserving of the Yanick Dupre Award.  

Hatcher

I’m giving it to Niskanen. This was tough for all the right reasons though. I think you could make a case for quite a few players on the team to take this one home.

There are a lot of great guys in that dressing room that are both the type of player and the type of person you’d want on your hockey team. But when you say “character, dignity and respect,” my mind jumps right to Niskanen. He holds himself and his teammates accountable in the most respectful way following tough contests. He has experienced success and exudes the maturity that comes with that, without ever talking about it or being boastful about it.

He’s the “Steady Eddie” of the team, keeping things in balance on the ice and off it. Never complains, not even with 15 stitches in his nose. And beyond his character contributions, he’s been exactly what Fletcher hoped he’d be in terms of a player — a dependable defenseman that has perfectly complemented Ivan Provorov on the Flyers' top D pairing.

Hall

During his first season in Philadelphia, Kevin Hayes has fully embraced the community on top of augmenting the dynamic in the Flyers' dressing room.

Through a mixture of lightheartedness and leadership, Hayes has brought the Flyers closer together. The 27-year-old center has been a quality teammate and a go-to interview all season.

He has shown nothing but respect and character in his dealings with fans, media members and Flyers employees.

There isn't a bad choice here, but Hayes' value has gone beyond the ice.
