Columbus acquired Lauri Korpikoski from Dallas in exchange for Dallas Heatherington just ahead of Wednesday's trade deadline.

Through 60 games this season with Dallas the veteran forward has posted eight goals and 20 points along with 32 blocks and 34 hits. He's a classic bottom-six forward who helps out on the penalty kill, so his fantasy value is limited.
Mar 1 - 3:35 PM

The Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired defenseman Frank Corrado in exchange for Eric Fehr, Steven Oleksy and a fourth round selection this season.

Before you think that Corrado is so valuable, the trade freed up salary cap space for the Penguins and nothing else. Corrado was a healthy scratch almost all season for Toronto before he was sent to the Marlies 25 days ago. He played in only seven games for the Leafs this season and should be sent to WBS of the AHL at this time.
Mar 1 - 3:30 PM

The Toronto Maple Leafs have acquired Steve Oleksy, Eric Fehr and a fourth round pick in the 2017 Draft for Frankie Corrado.

The Penguins rid themselves of plenty of cap space in the deal. Oleksy had only one assist in 11 games with Pittsburgh this season as he was a healthy scratch on numerous occasions. He will be a depth defenseman in Toronto with no fantasy value.
Mar 1 - 3:25 PM

Riley Barber has been assigned to Hershey of the AHL.

He made his third appearance of the season with the Capitals on Tuesday night. The 23-year-old has 12 points in 19 games with Hershey this year.
Mar 1 - 3:24 PM

Tampa Bay has flipped Mark Streit to Pittsburgh in exchange for a fourth round draft pick in 2018 during a whirlwind trade deadline day for the defenseman.

Tampa will also retain half of Streit's remaining cap, after the Flyers' agreed to retain 4.7%. Through 49 games with the Flyers this season the veteran defender has posted five goals and 21 points along with 22 PIMs and 58 hits. At age-39 he's still averaging 19:23 of ice time. He'll slide it nicely on the back end of Pittsburgh's blue line, and likely their secondary power play unit.
Mar 1 - 3:23 PM

Paul Carey has been recalled by Washington.

He could be in the lineup on Thursday if T.J. Oshie is still out of the lineup. Carey has 16 goals and 44 points in 48 games with Hershey of the AHL this season. He has also appeared in three matches with Washington in 2016-17.
