ESPN is reporting that the Washington Capitals traded a first-round pick in the 2017 NHL Draft, a second-round pick in 2018 and prospect Zach Sanford, a left winger, for star defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk.

Shattenkirk has been a star defenseman for the St. Louis Blues but is set to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. The Blues found a good package for Shattenkirk while the Caps, already a strong Stanley Cup contender, improved their defense considerably. The offensive-minded Shattenkirk should pay big dividends to his fantasy owners as a Washington blueliner. TSN's Pierre Lebrun tweeted late Monday night that the Blues will get that second-round pick from Washington if the Caps sign Shattenkirk or if the Caps reach the conference finals and Shattenkirk plays in at least 50 percent of the games.

Forward Alexander Radulov scored once and added three assists to help the Montreal Canadiens stage a dramatic comeback and beat the Devils 4-3 in overtime in New Jersey Monday night.

The Canadiens were down 1-0 after two periods and 2-0 early in the third when Radulov cut the Devils' lead to 2-1 with his 15th goal of the season at 2:49 of the third. After New Jersey regained a two-goal lead, Radulov picked up his 29th and 30th assists on goals by Montreal captain Max Pacioretty and then his 31st assist on the overtime winner by Alex Galchenyuk. Galchenyuk's goal, his 15th of the season, was posted at 2:54 of the OT period. Pacioretty's goals were his 30th and 31st of the season. His second was scored with 53 seconds left in regulation and set up the overtime. Defenseman Shea Weber assisted on the Canadiens' tying and winning goal and now has 22 assists on the season.

The New York Islanders are reportedly interested in Matt Duchene.

The report comes from TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, who says he knows the Islanders want to bring Duchene into the fold. There's no guarantee that the Avalanche will move him between now and Wednesday's trade deadline, but if they do, the reported asking price is three to four solid young assets, including a defenseman that Colorado could pencil into their lineup right away. Dreger brought up Travis Hamonic as a potential fit for the Avs.

Jason Pominville has been diagnosed with the mumps.

Multiple members of the Vancouver Canucks have already been sidelined with the same illness and it seems to have spread to the Wild's locker room, as both Pominville and Zach Parise are suffering from the same issue. Both players will now be placed in isolation for a five-day period. Consider him day-to-day.

The Ottawa Senators have acquired Alex Burrows from the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for Jonathan Dahlen.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have acquired Brian Boyle from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for Byron Froese and a 2017 second-round pick.

Boyle has 13 goals and 22 points in 54 games this season. He comes with a $2 million annual cap hit and is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. He'll provide the Leafs with a veteran presence and bolster their bottom-six forwards as they battle for a playoff spot.

Kyle Quincey will be a healthy scratch on Monday.

This is probably a case of the Devils protecting a possible trade chip. If Quincey played on Monday and got hurt, then New Jersey would miss out on the pick(s) or prospect(s) they could potentially get for him. John Moore will draw into the lineup.
