Today is the big day, and though the Ottawa Senators have already made a couple of moves ahead of the deadline there’s still a good chance that Pierre Dorion will be active. The Sens’ GM is nothing else if not willing to roll the dice.

We’ll update this page as we go with any trades from around the league. So strap in, and let’s talk some hockey!

**UPDATE 12:56 PM ET**

Over the last hour, a few notable things have occurred around the NHL. First, it’s confirmed that Filip Forsberg will not be on the move - at least, not yet. The Nashville Predators will be keeping him around beyond the deadline, likely to attempt to get a deal done before he hits free agency this summer.

The Edmonton Oilers worked to upgrade their blueline as they sit right on the fence of the playoff picture by acquiring Brett Kulak from the Montreal Canadiens.

Justin Braun is on the move as the Philadelphia Flyers continue to rebuild and/or retool. Braun is the latest addition to the New York Rangers, in exchange for a 2023 third round pick.

In a few more minor deals, the Toronto Maple Leafs sent Alex Biega to Nashville in exchange for future considerations - likely a move to make room for another contract. Los Angeles and Nashville also exchanged a few less exciting prospects with Frederic Allard heading to the Preds in exchange for Brayden Burke.

**UPDATE 11:23 AM ET**

The Washington Capitals have bolstered their forward depth for the upcoming play-offs by re-acquiring Marcus Johansson

**UPDATE 11:12AM ET**

In the first big move of the day, Chicago has traded Marc-Andre Fleury to the Minnesota Wild. The Wild have performed far above expectations this season, and likely view the West as winnable with some help from their goalie.

**UPDATE 11:06 AM ET**

The Arizona Coyotes is the team that takes on bad contracts in exchange for futures and they did it again today by bringing in Brian Little’s contract from Winnipeg.

Also, the Washington Capitals are bringing Marcus Johansson back to the team in a deal with Seattle. The pieces are still to be confirmed and will be updated here shortly.

**UPDATE 10:20 AM ET**

The Bruins have agreed to a two-year extension with Jake DeBrusk. The extension is interesting for a couple of reasons, not least of which is that DeBrusk was rumoured to have asked out and it seems that request has not been rescinded in the face of the extension. Could be more to come!
