NHL trade deadline 2024: Tracking the latest news, rumors

March 7 — The Devils were trying to work out an extension with winger Tyler Toffoli, but that appears to have fallen through. Instead, it looks like New Jersey is pivoting and is shopping the scoring winger. 

March 7 — All eyes remain focused on Pittsburgh and Jake Guentzel. The winger is undoubtedly going to be moved before Friday’s deadline, and a number of teams remain in on the talented forward. 

March 7 — The Avalanche made a couple of strong acquisitions to their bottom-six forward group, adding Yakov Trenin from the Predators and Brandon Duhaime from the Wild. 

March 7 — The Maple Leafs are acquiring defenseman Joel Edmundson from the Capitals, according to former NHL defenseman Jordan Schmaltz. Washington is receiving the Islanders’ 2024 third-round pick and the Blackhawks’ 2025 fifth-round pick while retaining half of Edmundson’s salary.

March 7 — The Kraken plan to trade Jordan Eberle before the deadline if an extension can’t be reached, according to Daily Faceoff’s Frank Servalli, who notes that the Oilers have interest in the veteran. 

March 6 — The Golden Knights are making a big splash, as the defending Stanley Cup champions reportedly are getting Noah Hanifin from the Flames, according to TSN’s Darren Dreger. Not only that but there is an extension being worked out with the pending free agent. 

March 6 — The Rangers are reportedly getting some bottom-six help, as the team is acquiring center Alexander Wennberg from the Kraken, according to ESPN’s Emily Kaplan. Seattle is retaining 50% of Wennberg’s contract, while receiving a second- and fourth-round pick. 

March 6 — One potential trade target is off the board. The Flyers are re-signing pending UFA defenseman Nick Seeler to a four-year extension, keeping the 30-year-old in Philadelphia. 

March 6 — A big one-for-one deal: the Avalanche are sending young defenseman Bowen Byram to the Sabres for Casey Mittelstadt, according to Kevin Weekes, hoping to boost their offense after landing some defensive help with the deal for Sean Walker.

March 6 — The Avalanche have struck a deal to land defenseman Sean Walker from the Flyers, sending a conditional 2025 first-round pick back to Philadelphia. The Flyers also received Ryan Johansen but will place him on waivers.

March 6 — The Vladimir Tarasenko sweepstakes are over, as the Panthers swung a deal to land the former Blues star from Ottawa for third- and fourth-round picks. Tarasenko didn’t sign with the Senators until late July but emerged as an intriguing trade candidate with 41 points in 57 games.

The Senators retained half of Tarasenko’s salary as part of the deal, which became possible when the veteran waived his no-movement clause. 

March 5 — The Penguins are hoping to trade Jake Guentzel by the end of Wednesday, according to Darren Dreger. Pittsburgh is expecting to receive a significant haul for the 29-year-old.
