The Blue Jackets are getting a player who will help strengthen their top-six.

One of the top blue-liners available on the rental market is off the board.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have acquired goaltender Keith Kinkaid from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for a 2022 fifth-round pick, the Blue Jackets confirmed Monday.

With the addition of the draft picks, NY now has seven draft picks in the first four rounds, after adding a first in the Hayes deal, a second in the Zuccarello deal, and a conditional second in the Ryan McDonagh trade previous year.

The Senators moved Dzingel a day after sending Matt Duchene to the Blue Jackets, and winger Mark Stone is the only unrestricted free agent with strong value on the trade market left in the club's dressing room. The Jackets blanked the Senators 3-0.

Hall has played in 33 of the Devils' 63 games this season with 11 goals and 26 assists.

The Rangers, meanwhile, are stockpiling draft picks; they have 10 in 2019, including five in the first two rounds.

He has a $1.8 million cap hit and will be a free agent come July. "I think the guys in here and me appreciate that, and so do the fans".

"He got put in a hard situation with two of his real high-end players that weren't willing to commit to re-sign", MacLellan said.

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.

Coach John Tortorella appeared to be in an (uncharacteristically) ebullient mood on Monday, and that was before the McQuaid trade was announced.

Kekalainen has said he would only trade Panarin if he gets his desired return for his leading scorer and now is more likely to continue adding than subtract from his group. They are one point behind the Blue Jackets for third place and are five points behind the Washington Capitals for second place and are seven points behind the Metropolitan Division leaders New York Islanders.

The Coyotes originally acquired Weal, who was selected 70th overall by Los Angeles in the 2010 draft, from Philadelphia for minor-league defenceman Jacob Graves and a 2019 sixth-round pick on January 11. "It was kind of a good way to end my time as a Sen and I probably felt more comfortable because I was in this building (rather) than had we gone somewhere else", said Duchene.
