The Capitals paid a heavy price to get their hands on the 26-year-old Longueuil. They gave up forwards Jakub Vrana and Richard Panik, in addition to a first-round pick in 2021 and a second-round pick in 2022.
Mantha, a 1.96 m (6 ft 5 in), 106 kg (234 lb) forward, has scored 95 goals in 302 NHL games. This season, he has 21 points, including 11 goals, in 42 games.
The Wings’ first-round pick (20th overall) in 2013, he signed a four-year contract extension worth $ 22.8 million last season. His rights therefore belong to the Capitals until the end of the 2023-2024 season.
Vrana, 25, was arguably the Red Wings’ most coveted player. Like Mantha, he has had 25- and 24-goal seasons, but will become a compensated free agent at the end of the season.
Taylor Hall in Boston
Taylor Hall, one of the most coveted players at the deadline, will continue his career in Boston.
The Calgary native was ceded by the Buffalo Sabers along with Curtis Lazar against Anders Bjork and a second-round draft pick.
Buffalo will pay 50% of Hall’s salary.
The 29-year-old had signed an $ 8 million contract with the Sabers. He has a record of 2 goals and 17 assists in 37 games. He was the first-ever pick in the 2010 draft.
I still believe in myself as a player. I know I can bring something to a team. I’m excited to join a winning team, a dit Hall.
Jeff Carter in Pittsburgh
The Los Angeles Kings sent forward Jeff Carter to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday night against two conditional picks.
Kings vice-president and general manager Rob Blake explained that the team would get a conditional third-round pick in the 2022 draft and another in the fourth round in 2023.
Carter has played in the NHL for 16 seasons, including the last nine and more with the Kings. He helped them win two Stanley Cup titles.
In 40 games this season, Carter has 8 goals and 11 assists. He leaves Los Angeles tied for 10th in team history for goalscoring. He is 1st in overtime goals with 11.
Foligno and Rittich in Toronto
The Maple Leafs acquired forwards Nick Foligno of the Columbus Blue Jackets and Stefan Noesen of the San Jose Sharks in a three-team trade.
Toronto sends a first-round pick in 2021 and a fourth-round pick in 2022 to Columbus, while San José receives from the Leafs a fourth-round pick in 2021.
The Blue Jackets have agreed to keep 50% of Foligno’s $ 5.5 million salary, while the Sharks keep 25% of the 33-year-old forward’s starting salary.
Thus, the Maple Leafs will only have to assume 25% of Foligno’s salary for the remainder of the season, or 1.375 million. He has 16 points in 42 games this season and 482 in 950 NHL games.
Noesen, 28, has played 5 games with the Sharks this year and 12 with the California roster, the Barracuda.
The Maple Leafs also secured the services of Calgary Flames goaltender David Rittich for a third-round pick in 2022.
The Flames are withholding 50% of Rittich’s salary, which is the last season of a two-year contract.
The 28-year-old goaltender is 4-7-1 with a 2.90 goals-against average and .904 save rate in 15 games this season. He also had a shutout.
Gaudette in Chicago
The Chicago Blackhawks acquired forward Adam Gaudette from the Vancouver Canucks and host center Matthew Highmore.
Gaudette, 24, had 7 points, including 4 goals, in 33 games in 2021. Highmore, 25, has 2 assists in 24 games.
In another trade, the Hawks gave up forward Mattias Janmark and a 5th round pick in 2022 to the Vegas Golden Knights to get two picks: a 2nd round in 2021 and a 3rd in 2022.
Janmark, author of 10 goals and 9 assists in 41 games, is well positioned for the best attacking season of his career. He peaked at 19 goals and 34 points in 2017-18 with the Dallas Stars.
The Blackhawks also gave Colorado Avalanche forward Carl Soderberg, 15 points in 34 games this season. They get prospects Ryder Rolston and Josh Dickinson, two forwards.
Kulikov à Edmonton
The Edmonton Oilers have added experience to their defense with Dmitry Kulikov, acquired from the New Jersey Devils against a conditional 4th round pick in 2021.
The 30-year-old Russian has 2 assists in 38 games this season.
Ottawa drops ballast in defense
The Ottawa Senators also traded defensemen Mike Reilly and Braydon Coburn on Sunday night.
The Senators sent Reilly to the Boston Bruins for a third-round pick in 2022.
Reilly, 27, has 19 assists in 40 games. He could become an unrestricted free agent this summer.
Coburn will continue his career in New York. The Senators got a 2022 seventh-round pick from the Islanders.
Coburn, 36, has two assists in 16 games with the Senators.
