The Ducks acquired Joel Persson from the Oilers for Angus Redmond and a conditional 2022 seventh-round draft pick.
Persson is in his first year in North America and has split his time between the AHL and NHL this season. While with the Oilers, he had just two assists in 13 games but was second among Bakersfield defensemen with 16 points (3G / 13A) in just 27 AHL games. Expect him to report to San Diego (AHL).
The Oilers acquired Angus Redmond and a conditional 2022 seventh-round draft pick from the Ducks for Joel Persson.
This was probably the smallest trade of the deadline. Redmond is an undrafted goalie who is in the ECHL, however, he is an impressive 13-0-0 with a 2.31 GAA and .918 SV% with the Newfoundland Growlers. He's expected to remain in the ECHL post-trade.
The Golden Knights received Martins Dzierkals from the Maple Leafs for a 2020 fifth-round pick as a part of the Robin Lehner trade.
Lehner was actually traded to the Maple Leafs and then flipped to the Golden Knights so that the Maple Leafs could retain part of Lehner's salary and receive the draft pick. Dzierkals has three goals and seven assists (10 points) in 31 games with Jukurit Mikkeli of the SM-liiga this season.
The Maple Leafs have acquired Matt Lorito from the Islanders for Jordan Schmaltz.
Lorito has nine goals and 13 assists (23 points) in 50 AHL games with Bridgeport (AHL) this season. This is a pure AHL deal, so look for Lorito to report to the Toronto Marlies.
The Islanders have acquired Jordan Schmaltz from the Maple Leafs for Matt Lorito.
In his first season in the Maple Leafs organization, Schmaltz has scored two goals with 11 assists (13 points) in 37 AHL games. This is a straight AHL trade, so look for Schmaltz to report to Bridgeport (AHL).
The Sharks have acquired Brandon Davidson from the Flames for future considerations.
Davidson has split his campaign between the NHL and AHL, picking up 20 points (3G / 17A) in 34 games with Stockton. During his time in the NHL he had no points in seven games, giving him just 23 points (9G / 14A) in 169 career games with the Oilers, Canadiens, Islanders, Blackhawks and Flames. Now he heads to his sixth team where it's unclear whether he'll report to the NHL or AHL.

The Sharks have acquired Anthony Greco and a 2020 first-round draft pick from the Lightning for Barclay Goodrow and a 2020 third-round draft pick.
Greco spent the first three and a half seasons with the Panthers organization before being acquired for Danick Martel four days ago. He was quickly flipped to the Sharks because the Lightning were already at 50 contracts. The 26-year-old winger has 10 goals and 10 assists (20 points) in 40 AHL games this year.
The Lightning have acquired Barclay Goodrow and a 2020 third-round draft pick from the Sharks for a 2020 first-round draft pick and Anthony Greco.
This is a bit of a surprising return for an undrafted 26-year-old with just 24 points (8G / 16A) in 62 games this season. However, he is under contract next season with a very small $925K cap-hit, which is good news for a cap-strapped Lightning team. Goodrow has good size (6-foot-2, 215 lbs) and is a capable penalty killer that really bolsters Tampa Bay's fourth line.
The Ducks have acquired Matt Irwin and a 2022 sixth-round pick from the Predators for Korbinian Holzer.
Irwin goes from the Predators' seventh defenseman to replacing Korninian Holzer as the Ducks' spare D-man. The 32-year-old has picked up just two assists while averaging 11:49 TOI/gm in 27 games this season.
The Predators have acquired Korbinian Holzer from the Ducks for Matt Irwin and a 2022 sixth-round pick.
Holzer has made a living as a seventh defenseman in the NHL and that will be the role he fills in Nashville as well. He has already set a career-high in games played (46) this season but has just four points (1G / 3A) in that time. He's a small upgrade over Irwin, which is why the sixth-round pick was also sent to Anaheim.
The Blackhawks have acquired T.J. Brennan from the Flyers for Nathan Noel.
Brennan bounced around a lot in the early part of his career but seemed to have found a home in the Flyers system, where he's played for Lehigh Valley (AHL) for the last four years. A once prolific point producer in the AHL, Brennan has picked up just eight points (1G / 7A) in 28 games in his age-30 season.

The Flyers have acquired Nathan Noel from the Blackhawks for T.J. Brennan.
This is a super minor trade. Noel is a 2016 fourth-round pick who is in the ECHL. He is expected to remain in the ECHL after the trade.

The Coyotes have acquired Markus Hannikainen from the Coyotes for a conditional 2020 seventh-round pick.
Hannikainen has not played in an NHL game this season after picking up seven points (4G / 3A) in 44 games with Columbus last year. Instead he's got 18 points (7G / 11A) in 28 AHL games and is expected to Tucson (AHL) where he can build on that.
The Golden Knights have acquired Nick Cousins from the Canadiens for a 2021 fourth-round draft pick.
Cousins was an effective bottom-6 forward for the Canadiens this season, posting 22 points (9G / 13A) in 58 games while playing just 13:28 ATOI. In Vegas, he'll help fill a void left by Alex Tuch's injury and should be a third line winger moving forward.
The Devils have acquired Frederik Claesson, Janne Kuokkanen and a conditional second-round draft pick from the Hurricanes for Sami Vatanen.
Claesson signed on with the Hurricanes in September and has spent the entire 2020 season in the AHL. In 47 games with Charlotte the 27-year-old picked up three goals with 16 assists (19 points) and will likely report to Binghamton (AHL).
The Ducks have acquired Christian Djoos from the Capitals for Daniel Sprong.
Djoos was becoming a regular with the Capitals in 2019 before a thigh procedure cost him a few months and he never got back into the rotation. Djoos has spent most of the 2020 season in Hershey, where he led all Bears defensemen with 32 points (5G / 27A) in 42 games. He'll report to San Diego (AHL).
The Capitals have acquired Daniel Sprong from the Ducks for Christian Djoos.
Sprong is a former highly regarded prospect who is now with his third team in two years. Spring has not had a problem scoring in the AHL, posting 11 goals with 16 assists (27 points) in 39 games with San Diego this season. However, he has just 19 goals and 11 assists (30 points) in 97 career NHL games with the Penguins and Ducks. He'll report to Hershey (AHL) and have to work his way up to the high-powered Capitals.
The Blackhawks have acquired Slava Demin, Malcolm Subban and a second-round draft pick from the Golden Knights for Robin Lehner.
Demin was a fourth-round pick of the Golden Knights in 2018 and is in his sophomore year at the University of Denver. The 6-foot-2, 190 lbs. defenseman has scored two goals with seven assists (nine points) in 30 games for the Pioneers.
The Blackhawks have acquired Malcolm Subban, Slava Demin and a second-round draft pick from the Golden Knights for Robin Lehner.
Subban has struggled this season, going 9-7-3 while posting a 3.18 GAA and .890 SV% in 20 games (19 starts) this season. The Golden Knights were looking to improve their backup goaltending situation, so Subban is part of the package to acquire Lehner. Subban will serve as Corey Crawford's backup for the remainder of the 2020 season.
The Golden Knights have acquired Robin Lehner from the Blackhawks for Malcolm Subban, Slava Demin and a second-round draft pick.
Lehner followed up his spectacular 2018-19 season with an impressive stint in Chicago. He was able to post a 16-10-5 record with a .918 SV% despite some obvious flaws in Chicago’s defense. Lehner will immediately assume the backup role and could potentially challenge Marc-Andre Fleury for the starting job. He is set to become an unrestricted free-agent on July 1st.
