Flurry of deals as buzzer hits 3 p.m.

Once again, NHL trade deadline day arrived with a whole bunch of deals completed in the days beforehand.

The Florida Panthers have acquired forward Claude Giroux and defenseman Ben Chiarot. The Colorado Avalanche have acquired defenseman Josh Manson and forward Nico Sturm. The Boston Bruins beefed up their defense by acquiring Hampus Lindholm, then signed him to a six-year, $52 million contract. The Toronto Maple Leafs countered by making a deal for defenseman Mark Giordano.

But there was plenty of activity on Monday, including goalie Marc-Andre Fleury going to the Minnesota Wild and the New York Rangers making moves at the buzzer.

Here are deals and analysis from deadline day. Deals from earlier can be found here.

Ducks, Golden Knights pull off trade

Anaheim gets winger Evgenii Dadonov and a 2023 or 2024 second-round pick and Vegas gets injured defenseman John Moore and the contract of injured forward Ryan Kesler. This is likely all about clearing cap space to accommodate the acquisition of Jack Eichel in the fall. The Golden Knights didn’t have the flexibility to make any additions at the deadline.
