Ducks get their veteran d-man, adding Wisniewski from Columbus

James Wisniewski

The Anaheim Ducks were “adamant” about trying to add another defenseman. And today, they did just that, acquiring veteran James Wisniewski, along with a third-round draft pick, from Columbus for a second-round pick and forwards William Karlsson and Rene Bourque.

Wisniewski, a former Duck, was reportedly being shopped by the Blue Jackets in the weeks leading up to today’s deadline. The 31-year-old has eight goals and 21 assists in 56 games this season, with 14 of his points (7G, 7A) coming on the power play.

The deal allows the budget-conscious Jackets to shed themselves of Wisniewski’s contract, which runs through 2016-17 for a cap hit of $5.5 million.

Karlsson is a 22-year-old prospect who’s played just 18 games in the NHL. He was the 53rd overall pick in the 2011 draft.

The Ducks made another trade earlier in the day, sending veteran d-man Ben Lovejoy to Pittsburgh for 23-year-old blue-liner Simon Despres.

They’ve also reportedly acquired depth defenseman Korbinian Holzer from Toronto.


Update 2:

The Holzer deal sees him go from Toronto to Anaheim in exchange for veteran defenseman Eric Brewer. The Ducks also sent a fifth-round pick to the Leafs in the trade.

Lovejoy returns to Pittsburgh for Despres

Ben Lovejoy

The Pittsburgh Penguins have reacquired defenseman Ben Lovejoy from the Anaheim Ducks, in return for d-man Simon Després.

Lovejoy, originally a depth defenseman for the Penguins, was traded to Anaheim in February of 2013. The 31-year-old played 150 games for the Ducks, scoring six times with 33 assists while logging around 19 minutes per contest.

At 23 years old, Despres gives the Ducks another young blue-liner to join the likes of Cam Fowler, Hampus Lindholm, and Sami Vatanen. He has two goals and 15 assists in 59 games this season.

Earlier in the day, the Pens traded another defenseman, Roberto Bortuzzo, to St. Louis in exchange for Ian Cole.

Pens and Blues combine for another trade, flip Bortuzzo for Cole

Pittsburgh Penguins v Minnesota Wild

The Blues and Pens have combined for another deal.

Just one month after the Marcel Goc-for-Maxim Lapierre trade, the Pens sent Roberto Bortuzzo to St. Louis in exchange for Ian Cole. The Blues also get a seventh-round pick at the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

Bortuzzo, 25, has appeared in 38 games this year, averaging 15:28 TOI while scoring six points. His most noteworthy moment came in early December, when he was suspended a pair of games for a hit on then-Devils forward Jaromir Jagr.

Cole, 26, is a former first-round pick (18th overall, 2007) that’s had his finest NHL season to date this year, posting career-highs in games (54) and goals (five). He’s been in and out of the St. Louis lineup lately, though, dealing with an upper-body injury while occasionally serving as a healthy scratch.

Monetarily, this deal is a wash. Cole is a pending RFA in the last of a two-year, $1.65 million deal with an $825,000 cap hit, while Bortuzzo is also a pending RFA with a $600,000 hit.

Hammond, Subban and Malkin named NHL’s three stars of the week

Andrew Hammond

Ottawa’s Andrew Hammond, Montreal’s P.K. Subban and Pittsburgh’s Evgeni Malkin have been named the NHL’s three stars for the week ending March 1, the league announced on Monday.

Here’s more from the release:

Hammond went 3-0-0 with a 0.67 goals-against average, .978 save percentage and two shutouts to backstop the Senators to a trio of victories.

Subban paced the NHL with five assists and shared the league lead with six points. His 48 points are five shy of his best single-season performance (set in 82 GP in 2013-14).

Malkin finished tied with Subban collecting six points during the week. The Pens’ forward had two goals and four assists as Pittsburgh won a pair of games.

Hammond earned his first career shutout making 25 saves in a 3-0 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Feb 25. The next night he blanked the L.A. Kings 1-0 with a 35 save performance. Hammond became just the second goaltender in NHL history to record consecutive road shutouts of the Ducks and Kings (Steve Mason, Dec. 29-31, 2008). Hammond capped the week off with a 28-save performance in a 4-2 win over the San Jose Sharks on Feb. 28.
