Jordan Caron suffered an upper body injury on Friday night while playing for AHL Providence and according to coach Bruce Cassidy the ailment is expected to keep him on the shelf for almost three weeks.

If this projection is accurate then the Boston Bruins would have to begin the 2012-13 campaign without the services of Caron, who was penciled in to play on the third line alongside Rich Peverley and Chris Kelly. Caron's NHL roster spot may have been in doubt anyway because he has struggled in the minors this year with just eight points and a minus-6 rating in 31 matches.

Detroit has traded Pavel Datsyuk's contract to Arizona.

The Wings sent Datsyuk, who will play in the KHL in 2016-17, and the No. 16 pick in the draft to the Coyotes for Joe Vitale, the 20th overall selection and a second round pick (No. 53). Arizona used the 16th overall pick to take Jakob Chychrun.

Brian Elliott has been traded to the Calgary Flames in exchange for the 35th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Draft.

If the Flames re-sign Elliott then the Blues will also get a 2018 third-round selection. Elliott was superb during the 2015-16 campaign and the Flames were desperate to add a netminder. He posted a 23-8-6 record with a 2.07 goals-against average and a .930 save percentage. Elliott had to share time with Jake Allen in St. Louis, but he'll be the top option with Calgary.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have taken Pierre-Luc Dubois with the third overall pick.

There was plenty of speculation that Columbus could trade this pick and that they weren't enamored with Jesse Puljujarvi, but going with Dubois is still a bit surprising based on the rankings. However, they have a strong prospect in Pierre-Luc Dubois, who followed up his 10-goal, 45-point campaign in 2014-15 with a 45-goal and 99-point campaign as an 18-year-old. Already 6'2" and 200 lbs, Dubois dazzles with his ability to command the ice by proactively looking for passing and shooting lanes. He’s drawn favorable comparisons to Anze Kopitar as an ideal No. 1 center, though there’s debate as to Dubois’ actual defensive prowess. Be that as it may, his versatility and refined toolbox make him a tantalizingly mature forward who can play both center and wing.

The Winnipeg Jets have taken Patrik Laine with the second overall pick.

If there’s anyone that could have challenged Auston Matthews to be the first overall pick, it’s Patrick Laine - and he’ll tell you that himself. The self-appointed "best player in the draft" certainly has the resume and the skillset to make good on his claim. Internationally for Finland he posted 22 goals in 24 games, including contests at U-18, U-20 and the WHC. He also captured MVP honors in the SM-Liiga playoff and WHC to boot. The 18-year-old winger comes in at 6’4" and 210 lbs with a powerful stride, deft hands, keen hockey-sense, and the ability to put the puck through the net from anywhere on the ice. The Jets may have missed out on Matthews, but they can't be disappointed with the opportunity to have Laine for years to come. He could be a star for them in the not too distant future.

The Montreal Canadiens have acquired Andrew Shaw for the 39th and 45th overall picks in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

Shaw is eligible to become a restricted free agent on July 1. There was a time when it looked like Chicago would be able to re-sign him given that the Blackhawks freed some cap space by dealing Bryan Bickell to Carolina. However, it came out Friday afternoon that Shaw is reportedly seeking an average annual salary of $4.5 million, which likely priced Chicago out. He had 14 goals and 34 points in 78 games in 2015-16.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have selected Auston Matthews with the first pick of the 2016 NHL Draft.

The Maple Leafs need a number one center and not too many are going to be better than Matthews who could have gone second overall last season had he been born two days earlier. The 18-year-old posted 24 goals and 46 points in 36 games as he played in Switzerland last season. He also posted 13 goals and 20 points in 17 international games for the Americans last season to boot. Much like Connor McDavid before him, Matthews is expected to be a true No. 1 center immediately and become the unquestioned cornerstone of his franchise for the next generation.

The Florida Panthers have acquired Reto Berra from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for Rocco Grimaldi.

And just like that, the Panthers have their backup goaltender. Berra couldn't stick with the Avalanche in the NHL for the entire 2015-16 campaign, but that was due to a mixture of injury woes and Calvin Pickard's ascent rather than him struggling on the ice. When Berra did play for Colorado he posted a 2.41 GAA and .922 save percentage in 14 games. He has one season left on his three-year, $4.35 million contract.

Patrick Kane was selected as the 2016 Hart Trophy winner.

No surprise there as Kane ran away with the 2015-16 scoring title with 106 points in 82 games. He also won the Ted Lindsay Award, which also goes to the league's best player, but as voted by his peers. This is the first time a member of the Chicago Blackhawks has won the Hart Trophy since 1968 when Stan Mikita claimed it for the second consecutive season.

The 2016 Vezina Trophy winner is Braden Holtby.

Holtby tied the NHL single-season record with 48 wins last season. He also posted a 2.20 GAA and .922 save percentage in 66 starts. In the end the Vezina voting wasn't even close as Holtby got 140 points to Ben Bishop's 51.

Drew Doughty is the 2016 Norris Trophy winner.

This is the first time Doughty has claimed the Norris Trophy, but he's had a couple near misses in the past. He finished second in the Norris Trophy voting in 2015 and was third in 2010. He's coming off of a campaign where he recorded 14 goals and 51 points in 82 contests. He also had 125 hits and 105 blocked shots.

Artemi Panarin won the 2016 Calder Trophy.

Panarin finished with 1,258 points in the vote ahead of defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere at 955 points and Connor McDavid with 858 points. It would have been interesting to see what McDavid could have done with a full season, but as it is it's not surprising to see Panarin on top. He had 30 goals and 77 points in 80 games.
