Fantasy Impact: The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed 25-year-old forward Mikhail Grigorenko to a one-year contract worth $1.2 million. In a low-risk deal (just the one year), the Jackets get to see a formerly highly-touted prospect (a former 12th overall pick but at one point he had been ranked No.2 for that 2012 draft) and [...]

The Buffalo Sabres traded forwards Conor Sheary and Evan Rodrigues to the Pittsburgh Penguins for winger Dominik Kahun.

Following a few down/injured years in Buffalo, Minnesota, and Toronto, Ennis has rebounded nicely this year in Ottawa with [...]

By |2020-02-24T17:51:34-05:00February 24th, 2020|Fantasy Take - Latest NHL Moves|

With the way the season has gone, it was obvious that San Jose would be sellers heading into the deadline.

In a head-scratcher of a move, Robin Lehner - a starting goaltender - was traded to a team that already has a starting goaltender. The Vegas Golden Knights sent backup Malcolm Subban and prospect defenseman Slava Demin to Chicago in return. Vegas gets: one of the better, and obviously underrated, goaltenders in the league.

The Boston Bruins have traded winger Danton Heinen to the Anaheim Ducks straight up for Nick Ritchie. The Bruins get: a budding power forward.
