 Exclusive: NHL trade deadline tracker: Latest rumors, news, updates for 2021 deadline day



The clock has hit 12:01 a.m. on April 12.

The clock is now officially ticking.

In fewer than 15 hours, GMs’ teams are going to be locked; the question is: Will they be loaded? The 2021 trade deadline is here and there’s a short window open for wheelin’ and dealin’. Some of the biggest names are already off the board but there are still players out there who can give teams a postseason push.

NHL TRADE TRACKER 2021: List of deals completed before the deadline

A number of teams will be looking to send soon-to-be unrestricted free agents packing while others will be looking to save almighty cap space. Maybe your team is — new term alert — a “broker team.”

Sporting News is keeping track of all the latest rumors and trades, and giving those swaps grades when they happen.

Mantha is not worth nearly as much as GM Brian MacLellan paid (a first-rounder, which Hall didn’t get) but he’ll get some cap relief and a guy who is a decent mid-six.

Dmitry Kulikov (D) 2022 conditional fourth-round pick

Oilers grade: B+

Devils grade: B+

A good move by Ken Holland as he adds a depth defenseman to help bolster a blue line that already has Darnell Nurse, Tyson Barrie and Ethan Bear. A good move by Tom Fitzgerald as he nabs a pick for a guy who could have walked in the offseason.

12:57 p.m. — Things are starting to pick up.

12:54 p.m. — Another ex-Rangers defenseman reportedly heading to Tampa Bay.

12:37 p.m. — Officially official.

Canucks receive: Blackhawks receive:

Pretty even swap here with two guys who have some upside.

12:14 p.m. — Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reports that Canucks are sending Adam Gaudette to the Blackhawks for Matthew Highmore. 

12:02 p.m. — Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston says that Vegas could be looking to make a move and that it could be Ryan Getzlaf. Also adds Jamie Oleksiak is a name piquing some interest.

11:58 a.m. — Are the Oilers adding a depth D?

11:41 a.m. — John Tortorella says losing Nick Foligno is like “breaking up the band.”

11:29 a.m. — Could the Sharks be in the mix?

11:23 a.m. — TSN’s Frank Seravalli reports that the Capitals are looking to upgrade between the pipes for the postseason. The two guys there now, Vitak Vanecek and Ilya Samsonov, are youngsters with not a ton of experience.

10:18 a.m. — Flyers centerman drawing interest.

10:14 a.m. — A first? In this economy?

10:00 a.m. — Detroit is open for business?

9:22 a.m. — Is Connor Garland on the move? Elliotte Friedman mentioned that he’s a guy being talked about on NHL Network too.

8:03 a.m. — It’s now officially official: Taylor Hall is a Bruin.

Bruins receive: Sabres receive:
Taylor Hall (F), Curtis Lazar (F) Anders Bjork (F), 2021 second-round pick

Bruins grade: B+

Sabres grade: D

1:46 a.m. — It’s official, but it’s not the one you think. 

Kings receive: Penguins receive:
2022 conditional third-round pick, 2023 conditional fourth-round pick Jeff Carter (F)

*Kings will retain 50 percent of Carter’s salary.

Kings grade: B+

Penguins grade: B+

The Penguins add a veteran from the West Coast at the deadline — it’s very 2020 Patrick Marleau but Carter brings a couple of rings with him, unlike Marleau, the soon-to-be NHL all-time leader in games played. Carter’s best years are behind him, but the 36-year-old can still add depth as a right-handed shot who can play any spot in the forward group.

1:30 a.m — The Taylor Hall trade may be done, but nothing has been announced by either team.

12:05 a.m. — It should be noted that Bob McKenzie dropped this “Bob’s Bomb” around 10:30 p.m., too.

12:01 a.m. — Just after midnight, this came down and all hell broke loose on Twitter. 

Midnight — A quick breakdown of a few of the big trades that have occurred:
