Craig Cunningham has been claimed by the Arizona Coyotes.

Cunningham has two goals and three points in 32 games with the Boston Bruins this season. He'll provide the Coyotes with a bit of depth after they depleted their roster through trades.

Evgeni Malkin was named the third star of the week for the period ending Mar. 1.

He produced two goals and four assists in two games. Malkin extended his current point streak to five straight contests. He has racked up three points in each of his last three outings. Malkin now has 64 points in 57 games.

The Arizona Coyotes have claimed Tye McGinn off of waivers from the San Jose Sharks.

McGinn has a goal and four assists in 33 games in 2014-15. The Coyotes have been big sellers in the lead-up to the trade deadline, so claiming McGinn will provide them with someone who at least has a bit of NHL experience to help fill the void to a marginal degree.

Maxim Letunov has reportedly been acquired from St. Louis as part of the Zbynek Michalek trade.

He is currently playing in his second season with the Youngstown Phantoms of the USHL. Letnov, who was chosen in the second round of the 2014 draft, has 22 goals and 53 points in 47 games this season. He's committed to go to Boston University next season.

Ray Emery (lower body) has been activated from the injured reserve list.

That's based on what the roster on the Flyers' website is showing at least. It would make sense given that Philadelphia has already sent Anthony Stolarz to the minors, leaving the Flyers with two goatlenders including Emery.
Mar 2 - 11:28 AM

Anthony Stolarz has been returned to AHL Lehigh Valley.

Stolarz was on the Flyers' roster for less than 24 hours. It seems Ray Emery has recovered from his lower-body injury and that's the reason for the move.

Joel Ward scored a goal in a 4-0 victory over Toronto.

Ward has 15 goals and 26 points in 64 games in 2014-15. There was a report that Chicago might be interested in the services of Ward, but Chicago might be done dealing after acquiring Antoine Vermette and Kimmo Timonen. Still, it's something worth keeping in the back of your mind as we move towards the 3:00 p.m. ET trade deadline.
Mar 2 - 11:12 AM

Luke Witkowski has been assigned to the minors.

The Lightning added Braydon Coburn in a deal with Philadelphia, so Witkowski will return to AHL Syracuse. Witkowski has skated in 10 games with the Lightning this season.
Mar 2 - 11:12 AM

Radim Vrbata had two assists in a 6-5 shootout win over St. Louis.

Vrbata has 22 goals and 44 points in 59 contests in 2014-15. He's played primarily with the Sedin twins this season, but he skated on a line with Derek Dorsett and Nick Bonino on Sunday. He'll probably end up back on a line with Henrik and Daniel Sedin eventually, but this situation is worth monitoring closely as Vrbata's fantasy worth does take a hit when he's off the top line, even if he had a good game on Sunday.

Zbynek Michalek has been dealt to St. Louis.

Details on what the Blues sent to Arizona are unclear at this time, but according to a league source it's a pick and a prospect. Michalek hasn't played since Feb. 14 due to a concussion and he hasn't skated yet, but he is feeling better.
Mar 2 - 11:05 AM

Patrick Marleau might be willing to waive his no-trade clause if asked.

Marleau still wants to stick with San Jose, but added, "If I'm not wanted, then that's a different matter." With the Sharks looking towards the future, the squad might wish to move the 35-year-old forward. However, such a trade isn't likely to happen before the 3:00 p.m. trade deadline.
Mar 2 - 11:01 AM

The San Jose Sharks aren't likely to pull the trigger on a major trade before the 3:00 p.m. ET deadline.

Sharks GM Doug Wilson is open to such a move, but believes it's more likely to happen over the summer. San Jose went 3-8-2 in February and are now two points behind in the battle for a playoff spot. San Jose isn't undergoing a traditional rebuild, but it is a team in transition and Wilson might attempt to accelerate that process over the summer by moving one or more of his veteran players.

Brian Flynn has been acquired by Montreal in exchange for a 2016 fifth-round pick.

He has recorded five goals and 17 points in 54 games for the Buffalo Sabres this season. Flynn will be a depth player for the Canadiens.
Mar 2 - 10:50 AM

Kris Letang had two assists in a 5-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Letang has recorded at least a point in three of his last four games. He has 10 goals and 49 points in 56 contests in 2014-15.
Mar 2 - 10:47 AM

The 2015 first-round draft pick that the Philadelphia Flyers are getting as part of the Braydon Coburn trade might not be the Tampa Bay Lightning's.

It almost certainly will be, but in the unlikely event that Tampa Bay somehow fails to make the playoffs and then wins the draft lottery, Philadelphia will receive the New York Rangers' top pick instead. The Lightning got the Rangers' first-round selection as part of the Martin St. Louis trade.
