The Senators have acquired Julius Bergman, Mikkel Boedker and a 2020 sixth-round pick from the Sharks for Mike Hoffman, Cody Donaghey and a 2020 fifth-round pick.

Bergman was a second-round pick (No.46 overall) in 2014 and just finished his third season in the AHL. The 22-year-old has good size (6-foot-1 / 205 lbs.) and set a career-high in goals (10) but picked up just 10 assists in 65 games with the San Jose Barracuda (AHL) this season. He will likely report to Belleville to start 2019.

The Senators have acquired Mikkel Boedker, Julius Bergman and a 2020 sixth-round pick from the Sharks for Mike Hoffman, Cody Donaghey and a 2020 fifth-round pick.

Since signing a four-year, $16.0M deal with the Sharks two years ago, Boedker has recorded just 25 goals and 38 assists (63 points) in 155 games. This comes on the heels of a four-year stretch in which he averaged 20 goals and 32 assists (52 points) per 82 games. Boedker has great speed, but will have an extremely difficult time replacing Hoffman’s production.

The Sharks have acquired Mike Hoffman, Cody Donaghey and a 2020 fifth-round pick from the Senators for Mikkel Boedker, Julius Bergman and a 2020 sixth-round pick.

The 28-year-old is 24th in the NHL in goals (104) and 44th in points (224) over the last four seasons.

The Coyotes acquired Alex Galchenyuk from the Canadiens for Max Domi on Saturday.

Galchenyuk, 24, has disappointed since being picked No.3 overall in 2012. Galchenyuk had a breakout campaign in 2015-16, when he collected 30 goals and 26 assists, but is tied for 110th in points (95) in two years since. Galchenyuk has had a difficult time sticking at centre during his NHL career, but the Coyotes are expected to use him as a pivot, likely on the second line behind Derek Stepan.

The Canadiens acquired Max Domi from Arizona and signed him to a two-year contract worth $6.3 million ($3.15M AAV).

Domi was acquired from the Coyotes in a straight-up trade for Alex Galchenyuk. Domi was selected No.12 overall in 2013 and has yet to fully live up to expectations after a great rookie season—18 goals and 34 assists in 81 games. Since then he has scored just 18 goals with 65 assists (83 points) in 141 games. Domi brings some physicality along with great playmaking ability to the left-side of the Canadiens’ lineup, where he figures to slot in behind Max Pacioretty.

The Kings have acquired Peter Budaj from the Lightning for Andy Andreoff.

Budaj, who was acquired from the Kings back in February of 2017, appeared in just 15 games over a season and a half in Tampa Bay. Budaj was limited to just eight starts due to injury and poor play last season and was ultimately passed on the depth chart by Louis Domingue, who projects as Andrei Vaslievskiy’s backup next season. Budaj returns to Los Angeles, where he will be Jonathan Quick’s backup and where he was 27-20-3 with a 2.12 GAA, .917 SV% and seven shutouts while Quick was hurt in 2017.

The Lightning have acquired Andy Andreoff from the Kings for Peter Budaj.

Andreoff, 27, was drafted in the third-round (No.80 overall) in 2011 and has picked up just 24 points (13G / 11A) in 159 career NHL games. Andreoff, who had nine points in 45 games last season, will have to fight among one of the deepest forward groups for playing time in Tampa Bay in 2019. Andreoff may take the spot of Chris Kunitz, who will be a free agent in July, on the Lightning’s fourth line.

The Jets acquired Joe Morrow from the Canadiens for a 2018 4th round pick.

Morrow has picked up five goals and six assists (11 points) in 38 games with the Canadiens this season. Morrow was drafted with a lower of offensive potential but it hasn’t really developed as expected on the NHL level. He will serve as a depth defenseman on a good Winnipeg team.

The Rangers have acquired Vladislav Namestnikov, Libor Hajek, Brett Howden, 2018 1st Round Pick and a conditional 2nd Round Pick from the Lightning for Ryan McDonagh and J.T. Miller.

Namestnikov had a blistering start to the season picking up 33 points (15G / 18A) in his first 38 games but has struggled with just 11 points (5G / 6A) in his last 24. In New York he won’t have the luxury of playing with Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov, but he should still play a top-6 role.

The Lightning have acquired J.T. Miller and Ryan McDonagh from the Rangers for Vladislav Namestnikov, Libor Hajek, Brett Howden, 2018 1st Round Pick and a conditional 2nd Round Pick.

Miller basically replaces Vladislav Namestnikov in the Lightning lineup, but may not see the first line ice-time that Namestnikov was playing. Miller brings a solid amount of offence to the table as well, having picked up 13 goals and 27 assists (40 points) in 63 games with the Rangers. He should play a very similar, middle-6 role with some PP time as he did in New York.

The Lightning have acquired Ryan McDonagh and J.T. Miller from the Rangers for Vladislav Namestnikov, Libor Hajek, Brett Howden, 2018 1st Round Pick and a conditional 2nd Round Pick.

McDonagh has missed the last nine games with an upper-body injury but is expected to be back in the near future. His 50th game of the season will come in a Lightning uniform, but his fantasy value may actually take a hit because he will probably see less minutes behind Victor Hedman. McDonagh boosts the Lightning’s blueline a lot and make them and solidify them as Stanley Cup favourites.

The Devils have acquired Patrick Maroon from the Oilers for J.D. Dudek and a third round draft pick.

Maroon had a career-year while playing with Connor McDavid in 2016-17, but couldn’t quite find the same success this year. With his contract expiring at the end of the season and the Oilers out of the playoff hunt they had to trade him. Maroon made it seem possible that he could return to the Oilers this summer, but for now he heads to the Devils where he could find himself in the top-6.
