Hamhuis, Vrbata reportedly staying with Canucks

Dan Hamhuis and Radim Vrbata are reportedly remaining with the Vancouver Canucks.

The Canucks made no trades before the deadline, TSN 1040's Matthew Sekeres reports.

Vrbata joined the Canucks on the ice for practice Monday, and as expected, Hamhuis did not.

A Dallas Stars source told ESPN's Pierre LeBrun that no trade was completed for Hamhuis.

The Stars were reportedly "focused" on attempting to land the 33-year-old - who has a full no-trade clause - and apparently made a late push. Dallas landed blue-liner Kris Russell from the Calgary Flames earlier in the day.

The Chicago Blackhawks also failed to get Hamhuis, according to Sportsnet's Mark Spector. Their interest in Hamhuis reportedly "cooled considerably" Friday afternoon, hours before landing Christian Ehrhoff from the Los Angeles Kings.

Vrbata and Hamhuis are both pending unrestricted free agents, carrying cap hits of $5 million and $4.5 million, respectively.

Ducks land McGinn from Sabres

The Anaheim Ducks have reportedly acquired forward Jamie McGinn from the Buffalo Sabres for a conditional third-round draft pick, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.

ESPN's Pierre LeBrun notes that the third-round selection will be bumped up to a second-round selection in the event Anaheim advances to the Western Conference Final.

McGinn is the second of two wingers acquired by Ducks on deadline day. Bob Murray spent a sixth-round selection to acquire Brandon Pirri from the Florida Panthers earlier in the afternoon.

The left-shot McGinn has 14 goals and 27 points in what's been one of his best offensive campaigns.

Maple Leafs don’t move Parenteau at deadline

The Toronto Maple Leafs moved out a lot of bodies before the deadline, but not the one most expected.

P.A. Parenteau will remain with the Maple Leafs for the remainder of this season after general manager Lou Lamoriello failed to broker a deal on trade deadline day, according to multiple reports.

The rationale behind keeping Parenteau, an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, is unclear. But the winger has been dealing with a minor injury over the last week, which could have scared away teams previously willing to spend a prospect or pick to acquire his depth-scoring services.

Parenteau has an even 16-goal, 16-assist stat line in 60 games and an increased role under Mike Babcock. His task now, rather than chasing a Stanley Cup, is to help shepherd in William Nylander, Kasperi Kapanen, and the surplus of prospects making the jump to the NHL.

Canadiens trade Smith-Pelly to Devils for Matteau

The Montreal Canadiens and New Jersey Devils pulled off a last-minute deal ahead of the trade deadline Monday.

The Canadiens sent forward Devante Smith-Pelly to the Devils in exchange for forward Stefan Matteau.

Matteau, a former first-round pick, has struggled in his brief NHL career, recording just three goals and two assists in 44 games.

The 23-year-old Smith-Pelly recorded six goals and six assists in 46 games in Montreal this season.

Report: Devils trade Stempniak to Bruins for 2 picks

Lee Stempniak's been traded at the deadline. Again.

It's the third straight season he's on the move at this point in the year, as the New Jersey Devils dealt the forward to the Boston Bruins on Monday, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie. The return is a second-round draft pick in 2017 and a fourth-round pick in 2016, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.

Stempniak is in the midst of an excellent season, with 16 goals and 25 assists in 63 games. He was the Devils' leading scorer.

There's no word yet on what the Devils will receive in return, but they're set to cash in, after signing Stempniak to a bargain contract late in the offseason. The Bruins actually considered signing Stempniak to a professional tryout contract, eventually deciding against it.

Stempniak turned 33 on Feb. 4, and will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1. Again.

Report: Islanders acquire Shane Prince from Senators for 3rd-round pick

The New York Islanders have reportedly acquired Shane Prince from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for a third-round draft selection, Arthur Staple of Newsday was first to report.

Ottawa will send a seventh-round selection to Brooklyn to complete the deal.

Prince, a restricted free agent at the end of this season, has contributed three goals and 12 assists in 42 games.

Report: Lightning fail to deal Drouin at deadline

The Tampa Bay Lightning stood pat Monday and did not move Jonathan Drouin ahead of the trade deadline, according to TSN's Pierre LeBrun.

Although Drouin was not involved in a transaction by the deadline, he is still eligible to be traded before the end of the regular season.

Drouin has been front and center in trade speculation since November, when his agent, Allen Walsh, requested a trade from Tampa Bay.

The highly touted 20-year-old forward has not played a game since being suspended by the Lightning after failing to report to a game with the AHL's Syracuse Crunch on Jan. 20.

He recorded two goals and six assists in 19 games for the Lightning earlier this season.

Report: Bruins’ Eriksson not traded at deadline

Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson, arguably the deadline's biggest trade chip, was not traded Monday, according to ESPN's Pierre LeBrun.

Eriksson entered the day as the most-desirable forward asset. The 30-year-old is having a stellar season, sitting tied for second on the team in both goals (23) and points (48).

Keeping Eriksson is not a surprising decision by the club, as general manager Don Sweeney told reporters Sunday that he had no issue with keeping Eriksson past the deadline.

Heading into Monday, the asking price for Eriksson was believed to be a top player and a prospect.

Eriksson will now play a vital role in the club's playoff push. Dallas sits third in the Atlantic Division with 74 points, one win behind the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Hurricanes trade John-Michael Liles to Bruins

The Boston Bruins have taken a step toward shoring up their blue line, acquiring defenseman John-Michael Liles from the Carolina Hurricanes.

Forward prospect Anthony Camara, a third-round pick back in 2013, is also part of the Hurricanes' haul, the team confirmed.

Liles is in the final season of a four-year, $15.5-million contract signed with Toronto back in 2012. Traded to Carolina in early 2014, he recorded 10 goals and 36 assists in 156 games with the Hurricanes.

He is, however, a positive possession player who can move the puck and help on the power play.

The 35-year-old will challenge for a spot in Boston's defensive rotation as the Bruins look to secure a playoff spot down the stretch.
