NASHVILLE -- Andrei Kostitsyn is being reunited with his brother Sergei in Nashville.

The Montreal Canadiens dealt the winger to the Predators for a second-round pick in 2013 and a conditional fifth-round selection ahead of the NHL's trade deadline.

Andrei Kostitsyn is earning $3.25 million and will become an unrestricted free agent July 1.

He's struggled recently and has 12 goals and 24 points in 53 games this season.

The Kostitsyn brothers played together with the Habs from 2007 to 2010.

The conditional pick Montreal sent to the Predators is one they acquired in the Hal Gill trade last week.

Two Canadian teams have hit the waiver wire for some Deadline Day shopping.

The Montreal Canadiens have claimed forward Brad Staubitz off re-entry waivers from the Minnesota Wild while the Winnipeg Jets have claimed defenceman Grant Clitsome from the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Clitsome has scored four goals and added 10 assists in 51 games with the Blue Jackets this season.

The 26-year-old defenceman has one year left on a two-year deal he signed with Columbus in 2011 worth an average annual value of $1.25 million.

Originally selected in the ninth round (271st overall) by the Columbus Blue Jackets at the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Clitsome has scored nine goals and 27 assists in 93 career NHL games.

The 27-year-old Staubitz has posted a minus-7 with no points in 43 games with the Wild this year.

The Wild had been looking to find Staubitz a new home after the 27-year-old forward cleared waivers on February 11.

Staubitz was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by San Jose. He has scored eight goals and 10 assists in 196 career games with the Wild and Sharks.

He is in the final year of a two-year deal he signed with the Wild worth an average annual value of $575,000. The Canadiens will only have to pay half that salary and only half of Staubitz's average annual value will count towards Montreal's salary cap number.

He is set to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2011-12 season.

The deadline for players claimed off waivers to be eligible for post-season play was Monday at Noon et.

EDMONTON - The Edmonton Oilers are shaking up their blue-line, acquiring Nick Schultz from the Minnesota Wild for Tom Gilbert on Monday.

Schultz is a more defensive-minded player than Gilbert and had spent his entire career with the Wild. He has three points (1-2) in 62 games this season.

The 29-year-old carries a US$3.5-million cap hit through 2013-14.

Gilbert also has two years remaining on his contract with an annual cap hit of $4 million.

He has 17 points (3-14) in 47 games for Edmonton this season.

Love the deal for the Oilers. Schultz is the kind of player that the Oilers need.

Ryan Miller of the Sabres was alomst traded to the Flyers late Sunday night. I'm not sure what the whole deal would've been, but it was said to be a blockbuster type of trade. Jason Pominville was going to Philly as well.

Schultz wasn't told by the Wild he had been traded & he's pissed.

According to TSN, the Chicago Blackhawks acquired veteran defenseman Johnny Oduya in a trade with the Winnipeg Jets on Monday, less than an hour before the deadline expired.

Oduya had two goals and 11 assists in 63 games with the Jets. The blueliner averages 19 minutes, 19 seconds per game and is a minus-9. The 30-year-old native of Sweden previously played three-plus seasons with the New Jersey Devils before joining the Atlanta Thrasher (now Jets) during the 2009-10 season.

The left-handed shot played in three postseason series with the Devils and represented Sweden in the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver.

The Colorado Avalanche have acquired Jamie McGinn, Mike Connelly and Michael Sgarbossa from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for T.J. Galiardi, Daniel Winnik, and a seventh round pick.
McGinn has 12 goals and 24 points in 61 games. He is a physical forward who will chip in offensively while probably serving on the Avalanche's third line.

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators acquired Matt Gilroy from the Tampa Bay Lightning for fellow defenceman Brian Lee on Monday.

Gilroy has two goals and 15 assists in 53 games with Tampa Bay this season. In 180 career games with the Lightning and Rangers, the 27-year-old has nine goals and 34 assists.

The North Bellmore, N.Y., native won the Hobey Baker Award as the top player in the NCAA in his senior season Boston University.

Lee has five goals and 23 assists in 167 career games with the Senators.

The native of Moorhead, Minn., was taken ninth overall by Ottawa at the 2005 draft.

OK, the deal is official.

 

The Toronto Maple Leafs managed to move out a body on deadline day, but rather than a veteran, it was a youngster that now has a new home.

Leafs GM Brian Burke sent defenceman Keith Aulie to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday in exchange for winger Carter Ashton, a 20-year-old prospect who was taken 29th overall in 2009.


Aulie was behind Carl Gunnarsson, John-Michael Liles and Jake Gardiner on the left side on the Leafs blueline, and the other three weren't going anywhere. It makes sense that he was the one to go, especially considering he had not played very well in his time in the NHL.

Aulie was considered by Burke to be a key piece in the trade that brought he and captain Dion Phaneuf from the Calgary Flames in January of 2010.

"Obviously I didn't expect this," Aulie told TSN. "I'm pretty shocked still. I just got off the phone with [Lightning GM] Steve Yzerman and he said he's been interested in me for a while and is happy to have me.

"There was lots of competition here [in Toronto] all year and it made a lot of stress at times. Going down there, knowing there's some opportunity down there, I'll kind of make the best of that."

Ashton is the son of long-time NHLer Brent Ashton, who played 998 games with nine different NHL teams between 1979 and 1993.

He's big at 6-foot-3, 215 pounds, and had a couple 30 goal seasons at the WHL level, but remains a bit of a project. In his first full pro season, he has 19 goals and 35 points in 56 games with Tampa's AHL affiliate and is likely to start with the Toronto Marlies.

At this point, it's a gamble that either Aulie or Ashton are going to be meaningful contributers at the NHL level, and it makes sense for the Leafs to shift out a body on the blueline for potential help up front.

Like most late first-round picks, Ashton's game has some deficiencies – mainly in his own end – and the scouting reports all consider him as "somewhat raw." He skates well and has good speed but needs to work on lower body strength. He doesn't mind being physical but isn't a great hitter.

That said, he also shoots the puck very well and is still very young. I recall that the reports coming out of his pro training camps were pretty favourable, so it's not as if he can't compete at the pro level.

For now, that means added forward depth on the Marlies, who already have one of the higher scoring teams in the minors.

here's the complete Oduya deal

 


The Blackhawks were in desperate need of a defenseman, especially with Steve Montador and Niklas Hjalmarsson battling injuries. The market was thin but general manager Stan Bowman grabbed one in veteran Johnny Oduya.


According to Canada's TSN, the Hawks acquired Oduya from the Winnipeg Jets on Monday. The Jets are run by GM Kevin Cheveldayoff, who was Bowman's assistant previously with the Hawks. The Hawks reportedly sent the Jets second- and third-round picks in 2013.

The Hawks are yet to officially announce the move, pending a trade call with the NHL. The Jets claimed Grant Clitsome, formerly of the Columbus Blue Jackets, off waivers earlier Monday.

Oduya, 30, has two goals,13 points and a minus-9 rating in 63 games this season for the Jets. He's a defensive-minded blue-liner who began his career with the New Jersey Devils. He's in the final year of a three-year deal carrying a $3.5 million cap hit.

Oduya brings experience to a Hawks' blue line that was relying too much on 20-year-old Nick Leddy and 21-year-old Dylan Olsen this season. He shouldn't be expected to improve the Hawks' inept power play. But Oduya should help on the penalty kill. He's averaging more than two minutes per game this season on the PK.

"One correct defenseman can put everybody else in the right spot," former NHL coach Marc Crawford told the Sun-Times recently. "It doesn't mean that Leddy has to play an exorbitant amount. It doesn't put as much strain on [Duncan] Keith or [Brent] Seabrook. [Niklas] Hjalmarsson can be what he is instead of a guy who has to manufacture more."
