The NHL trade deadline woke up bright and early Monday morning, ahead of the 3 p.m. ET deadline, driven largely by the Flyers' Metro Division rivals. We have a running list below of every Metro Division move, which will be updated throughout the day:
3:50 p.m. - Washington trade trickles in
Some post-deadline action from the Caps:
Djoos and Sprong are both really good names. They've played a combined 10 games this year.
2:50 p.m. - Carolina makes one last push
The Hurricanes aren't going down swinging before the deadline is over:

Vatanen, 28, is a relatively productive scoring D-man with lots of good hockey ahead of him.
2:28 p.m. - Penguins keep dealing
Pittsburgh is loading up for another run at the Cup:

11:50 a.m. - Former Flyer on the move
Wayne Simmonds is leaving that on-fire hockey franchise in New Jersey:
Sounds like Wayne Simmonds to BUF #SNTrade— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) February 24, 2020
Simmonds, 31, is still pretty good at hockey. The Sabres aren't making the playoffs this year, but the future in Buffalo is intriguing.
11:33 a.m. - Flyers strike again!
Derek Grant is heading to Philadelphia, folks:

11:00 a.m. - Penguins add scoring depth
On the other side of the state, veteran Patrick Marleau is heading to the Penguins:
Third-round pick to San Jose. The pick becomes a second-rounder if Pittsburgh wins the Cup. https://t.co/sL6L9r60yG— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) February 24, 2020
The Sharks get back a third-round pick, which reportedly becomes a second-round pick if the Pens win the Stanley Cup. Steep for a vet, but the Pens are firmly in the title hunt.
10:49 a.m. - Hey look, the Flyers!
The Flyers chime in on a busy day with a move for defenseman Nate Thompson in exchange for a fifth-round pick.
NBC Sports Philadelphia's Jordan Hall has you covered with more info here.

The Panthers reportedly land a pair of players and a pair of prospects in return.
9:46 a.m. - J.G. Pageau heads to the Islanders
It's a pricey move, but New York lands a young, productive stud for a stretch run:

The Flyers were reportedly interested in Pageau, but didn't want to pay Ottawa's price:
PHI had interest in J-G Pageau but was not prepared to pay the price NYI paid, so if the Flyers were to get Thompson, it’s more of a depth move: https://t.co/1l42KB7B5f— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) February 24, 2020
Ottawa reportedly netted a 2020 first-round pick, 2020 second-round pick, and 2022 third-round pick for Pageau.
