NHL trade tracker 2019: Rumors, completed deals as deadline nears

The NHL trade deadline is almost upon us.

Feb. 25 at 3 p.m. ET is the cutoff for teams to decide if they’re playoff contenders or playoff pretenders.

Big names are reportedly on the trade block, including upcoming unrestricted free agents Artemi Panarin (Blue Jackets), Mark Stone (Senators), Mats Zuccarello (Rangers), Kevin Hayes (Rangers) and Matt Duchene (Senators). The question is: Who wants to pay a heavy price for what could potentially be a rental player?

On the other end, a few teams will be looking to shed salary as the season appears to be a lost one. The Devils already traded Brian Boyle to Nashville and now rumors are swirling that fellow veterans Ilya Kovalchuk (Kings) and Eric Staal (Wild) are on the market.

Only time will tell what moves will be made, and Sporting News is keeping track of them all.

Here’s an updated list of every trade completed before the NHL’s 2019 deadline.
