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.
