Blue Jackets acquire Dzingel from Senators

Regardless of what happens, the Blue Jackets have filled a big hole in their roster and can make some serious noise to close out the season as Columbus searches for its first playoff series win. San Jose to me is the better team here and we are getting them cheap as Columbus will be traveling home and will still be getting used to their new lineup. "You don't often have the luxury of having a two-time Vezina Trophy victor".

The Wheaton, Ill., native is now one goal shy of tying his career high of 23 set last season in 79 games while his 44 points is already a career best.

The New York Rangers have traded center Kevin Hayes to the Winnipeg Jets for forward Brendan Lemieux, a 2019 first-round pick and a conditional 2022 fourth-round pick.

The teams meet Tuesday night in Columbus, Ohio, in what will be the first of three meetings in 12 days, games that could help shape where they finish in the tight Metropolitan Division - or if they make the playoffs at all.

He has a $1.8 million cap hit and will be a free agent come July.

"The challenge is on us now", Columbus captain Nick Foligno said.


"He definitely wants to play", Shero said of Hall.

Jarmo Kekalainen isn't going to subtract after he added.

The rebuilding Senators added to their haul of prospects and draft picks by acquiring defenseman Erik Brannstrom, center Oscar Lindberg and a 2020 second-round selection in trading Stone to Vegas. "He was part of this team's eventual transformation since he took over a regular role in 2014-15 and we greatly appreciate his efforts over his time here".

Columbus did get on the board at 14:43 of the first period when Josh Anderson put a one-timer from the face-off circle behind Craig Anderson following a pass from the corner by Pierre-Luc Dubois. "Matt is a really good goalie, and we believe in him".

Columbus now sits third in a clogged Metropolitan Division, which features five teams within six standings points of each other.

"It was a huge thing to commit to eight years, somewhere where there's still a lot of question marks", Duchene said. "It's more of the nature of the business than it is him needing a change". "That's the goal. That's the only reason why any of the 31 teams are in this League and I don't think anybody is going to be lifting their arms up to win one round of playoffs and be happy about it. I'm glad Panarin and [Bobrovsky] are still here, gives us a chance to compete".
