Adam Henrique potted two goals and added an assist as the Devils dominated the Flyers for a 5-2 win Wednesday night.

Henrique might have brought some unrealistic expectations upon himself with such a great, 51-point rookie season, but he's still been plenty good in his second year, with nine goals and 13 points in 22 games. Patrik Elias and Andrei Loktionov each had a goal and an assist, while Ilya Kovalchuk notched the other marker.

Phil Kessel has been traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins along with Tyler Biggs and Tim Erixon and a second round pick in 2016 for Kasperi Kappanen, Scott Harrington, Nick Spaling and the Penguins first and third picks in 2016.

The Maple Leafas will retain some salary, rumored to be in the $1.25 million range for the next seven seasons. This is a huge acquisition for the Pens as Kessel will slot in alongside either Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin and could score 40-50 goals provided he comes to Pittsburgh with the right attitude. The Maple Leafs were desperate to rid themselves of Kessel as he was rumored to be a cancer in the Buds' dressing room. We suspect Kessel will be on his best behaviour when he reports to the Pens and we love the potential for him to bounce-back. Given that he has been one of the highest scoring wingers in the NHL over the last five seasons, Kessel is now a legitimate early second-round pick in hockey pools regardless of format.

Edmonton has locked up Andrej Sekera to a six-year deal.

His contract, which includes a no-move clause, has an annual average value of $5.5 million. Sekera was one of the top free agents out there and he'll see big minutes with the Oilers.

Francois Beauchemin has signed a three-year deal with the Colorado Avalanche.

Beauchemin will receive $13.5 million in the three years for a cap hit of $4.5 per. He will add a veteran presence to a young Avalanche blueline but do not expect a lot of stats as he is 35.

Mike Ribeiro has agreed to a two-year, $7 million contract with the Nashville Predators.

Nashville took a chance on Ribeiro last summer, inking him to a one-year, $1.05 million deal and it worked out for both sides. He scored 15 goals and 62 points in 82 contests, so this isn't a bad deal for the Predators.

Kevin Bieksa has inked a two-year, $8 million extension.

Bieksa still has a season left on his five-year, $23 million deal. In other words, once his present contract experiences, his cap hit will actually go down. He had four goals, 14 points, and 77 penalty minutes in 60 contests with Vancouver in 2014-15.

Artem Anisimov has reportedly sign a five-year, $22.75 million extension with the Chicago Blackhawks.

That's a $4.55 million annual cap hit. Anisimov will come with a roughly $3.3 million cap hit for the 2014-15 campaign though as he wraps up his existing three-year deal. He was acquired by the Blackhawks as part of the Brandon Saad trade. Anisimov had seven goals and 27 points in 52 contests in 2014-15.

Anthony Leblanc, Coyotes owner, and NHL deny team moving to Las Vegas.

The New York Post claimed two unidentified sources indicated the Coyotes were being sold to billionaire William Foley and moved to Las Vegas. However, when the story was published Tuesday evening, Bettman said the story "was garbage." Leblanc said the story was 'one hundred per cent false. There's no truth to it. I'm not an unidentified source, I'm a principal, so I think I should know." The Arizona Coyotes saga is very interesting to say the least.

Brandon Saad has been traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Columbus also received Michael Paliotta and Alex Broadhurst from Chicago, while the Blackhawks acquired Jeremy Morin, Corey Tropp, Artem Anisimov, Marko Dano and fourth-round pick in 2016. Changes were expected to come for the Blackhawks due to the cap and Saad, who is set to be a restricted free agent, becomes a casualty as a result.

Updating a previous item, Drew Stafford has signed a two-year/$8.7 million contract with the Winnipeg Jets.

Stafford had only nine goals and 24 points in 50 games for the Sabres before he was dealt to Winnipeg in the Evander Kane deal. He was a different player with the Jets as he had nine goals and 19 points in only 24 matches. He should be drafted in the late middle rounds in deeper drafts next season.

Martin Jones has been traded to the San Jose Sharks for a 2016 first-round draft pick and unsigned prospect Sean Kuraly.

Jones has a 16-11-2 record with a .923 save percentage and a 1.99 goals-against average in 34 games with the Los Angeles Kings over the past two seasons. He was just acquired by the Bruins in the Milan Lucic deal, but now his fantasy stock has improved considerably as he has a good chance of being the starting goalie for the Sharks.

A source told ESPN.com that Mike Richards is part of an ongoing investigation by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police for an off-ice incident.

A spokesperson for the RCMP in Manitoba said that no charges have been brought so far, but mentioned that the Canadian Border Services is also involved in the investigation. Richards had his contract terminated by the Kings on Monday for "a material breach of the requirements of his Standard Player's Contract." Several sources told ESPN.com that the Kings were made aware of the investigation on Friday, which halted trade talks for the center at the draft.
