Panthers acquire Nutivaara
Nutivaara carries a $2.7 million salary cap hit
Senators acquire Gudbranson from the Ducks
“Erik Gudbranson provides another sizable presence to our defence corps,” said Senators general manager Pierre Dorion. “He’s a reliable veteran who plays an intimidating style of game and someone who will add a combination of grit, energy and, most importantly, leadership to our lineup.”
Shawn Simpson: “Gudbranson gives some toughness and leadership, and classy local family. Take him over Hainsey, but the mobility is a big concern. Short term deal at low cost while reaching the floor makes this work.”
Pierre LeBrun: The Ducks are not retaining any salary in the deal. The Sens will take the full $4 million salary cap hit and $3 million salary.

Devils trade for a defenseman from the Blue Jackets
David Pagnotta: GM Tom Fitzgerald: “Ryan is a smart, two-way defenseman who fills a need on the left side of our top four. His poise, defensive acumen and transitional game will pair nicely with our current defensemen on the right side and he will play an important role for us.”
Frank Seravalli: The Columbus Blue Jackets have now shed $11.8 million in salary cap space over the past 24 hours.
Murray (trade) $4.6 million
Nutivaara (trade) $2.7 million
Wennberg (buyout) $4.459 million
#NJDevils acquire D Ryan Murray for a 2021 5th Round pick, UFA after this season, but brings great value as a Top 4 defensive defenseman that can kill penalties. Love this add for the Devils. pic.twitter.com/Afq9pEs1gV
