The Los Angeles Kings have acquired Anthony Stewart, a 2013 fourth-round draft pick, and a 2014 sixth-round pick from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for Kevin Westgarth.

That's a pretty good return for Westgarth, considering that the Kings were using him primarily as a depth forward. Stewart had nine goals and 20 points in 77 games in 2011-12 with Carolina. He should get regular playing time as a bottom-six forward with the Kings.

Sami Vatanen has undergone shoulder surgery.

It's not clear exactly how long Vatanen will need to recover, but teammate Hampus Lindholm is expected to need four-to-five months to rehab from his upcoming shoulder surgery and the Ducks revealed that Vatanen will take "even longer" for his recovery. In other words, don't expect Vatanen to be ready for the start of the 2017-18 campaign. He had three goals and 24 points in 71 contests.

Hampus Lindholm will need to undergo shoulder surgery this summer.

It will take Lindholm about four-to-five months to recovery from the surgery, so it's entirely possible that he won't be ready for the start of the season. On top of that there is some danger that he'll get off to a sluggish start because his recovery could impact his ability to get ready for the 2017-18 campaign over the summer. He had six goals and 20 points in 66 contests this season.

Steve Ott has been hired by the St. Louis Blues as an assistant coach.

That also means he's ending his playing career at the age of 34 (he'll turn 35 on Aug. 19). Ott had three goals and seven points in 53 games between the Montreal Canadiens and Detroit Red Wings this season. Over the course of his career he's played in 848 regular season games, including 122 with St. Louis. He also appeared in 61 playoff contests. "I am very proud of my playing career and will devote the same work ethic to my coaching career," said Ott. "The Blues organization is very special to me and my family and I'm excited to take the next step in my hockey career with this franchise."

Craig Cunningham has agreed to a two-year contract to serve as a pro scout for the Arizona Coyotes.

"We're thrilled to have Craig join our hockey operations department as a pro scout," said GM John Chayka. "Craig was a smart, hard-working player with an incredible passion for the game. We're confident that he will bring those same qualities to the Coyotes in his new role and that he will be an invaluable asset to our organization. We look forward to Craig helping us in several areas and are excited that he is staying with the club." Cunningham went into cardiac arrest on the ice before an AHL game in November. He had part of his leg removed in the procedure to save his life and he has made a remarkable recovery. We wish him the best in his new role with the Coyotes.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have reportedly given the Colorado Avalanche permission to speak to assistant GM Kyle Dubas.

This report comes from Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman. Dubas has been with the organization since the summer of 2014. It's unclear what role he's being interviewed for, but it's clear that the Avalanche need to upgrade their front office after the miserable season they had in 2016-17. It's not the first time Dubas has garnered interest from other teams. We'll see if it amounts to anything this time around.

Craig Anderson was outstanding in Ottawa's 2-1 win over Pittsburgh in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final.

What a response from Anderson, after he allowed four goals on 14 shots in Game 5. Anderson left the Penguins frustrated all night, as he turned aside 45 of the 46 shots Pittsburgh sent his way. Pens forward Evgeni Malkin opened the scoring in the second period, but Ottawa responded with two goals from Bobby Ryan and Mike Hoffman to get the win. Anderson now owns a 11-7 record with a 2.36 goals-against-average and a .922 save percentage this postseason. The best-of-seven series is now tied up at three. Game 7 will be played in Pittsburgh on Thursday night. The winner of that game will take on Nashville in the Stanley Cup Final.

Evgeni Malkin scored a goal in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to Ottawa in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Malkin opened the scoring at the 4:51 mark of the second period, but it's the only offense the Penguins were able to muster tonight. Sens goalie Craig Anderson was a huge reason for that, as he was terrific in this game. Malkin finished the game with two penalty minutes, seven shots on goal and three hits in 19:42 of ice time. Malkin now has four points in his last two games. He has seven goals and an incredible 24 points in 18 postseason games in 2017. Ian Cole and Scott Wilson picked up the assists on Pittsburgh's only goal. The series is now tied up at three. Game 7 will be played in Pittsburgh on Thursday night.

Mike Hoffman scored the game-winning goal in Ottawa's 2-1 win over Pittsburgh in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final on Tuesday.

The Penguins scored the first goal of the game, but Ottawa responded by goals by Bobby Ryan (second period) and Hoffman (early in the third frame). Hoffman's goal came on a blast from the faceoff circle. The Sens forward finished the game with two penalty minutes, two shots on goal and five hits in 16:20 of ice time. Hoffman has two goals and four points in his last four contests. He's up to five goals and five assists in 17 games this postseason. The best-of-seven series is now tied up at three. Game 7 will be played in Pittsburgh on Thursday night. The winner off that one will play Nashville in the Stanley Cup Final.
