The Capitals have acquired defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk from the Blues, according to multiple reports. In return, St. Louis will reportedly receive a first-round pick this year, a conditional second-round pick in 2018 and rookie winger Zach Sanford. Washington's 89 points are the most in the league while the Blues are fighting for a wild-card spot.
Sens acquire forward Alex Burrows from Canucks for prospect
VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The Ottawa Senators are gearing up for a push to the postseason, acquiring forward Alex Burrows from Vancouver for prospect Jonathan Dahlen.
The trade gives the Senators a skilled pest with plenty of playoff experience at forward.
Complete coverage of the Philadelphia Flyers and their rivals in the NHL from NBC Sports Philadelphia.
Burrows, 35, has played 822 regular-season games with the Canucks, with 193 goals, 191 assists and 1,066 penalty minutes. He has added 19 goals and 15 assists in 70 playoff games.
He had four straight seasons of at least 25 goals from 2008-09 to 2011-12 playing largely with the Sedin twins. His best offensive days are behind him -- he has nine goals in 55 games this season -- but he will still bring an edge to a Senators team that is pressuring Montreal for the top spot in the Atlantic Division.
Dahlen, 19, was selected in the second round, 42nd overall, by Ottawa at the 2016 draft.
He has impressed at the international level, with six points in seven games for Sweden at the 2017 world junior championship and leading his country in scoring with five points in five games at the 2016 Ivan Hlinka under-17 tournament.
Quarantined Parise, Pominville out for Wild with mumps
ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Minnesota Wild forwards Zach Parise and Jason Pominville have been diagnosed with mumps and must miss at least three games.
The Wild announced Monday, shortly before faceoff against Los Angeles, that Parise and Pominville have the highly contagious virus along with other members of the organization. The veteran wings have been placed in isolation for a five-day period, meaning they'll at least miss games Tuesday at Winnipeg and Thursday at Columbus.
The Wild said players and staff were recently provided with a measles-mumps-rubella vaccination.
Vancouver played Saturday night without five players because of the mumps or symptoms associated with the virus.
With Parise and Pominville out, forwards Martin Hanzal and Ryan White made their well-timed debuts Monday after being acquired Sunday in a trade with Arizona.
