Canadiens get younger up front, deal for Gurianov in forward swap with Stars

29 days ago CBC

The Montreal Canadiens have acquired forward Denis Gurianov from the Dallas Stars in exchange for forward Evgenii Dadonov, the team announced Sunday.

The Canadiens will retain 50 per cent of Dadonov's salary through the end of the season.

Gurianov, a first-round pick of the Stars in 2015, has two goals and nine points in 43 games for Dallas this year.

The six-foot-three, 205-pound right-winger has produced 46 goals and 103 points across 257 NHL regular-season contests in five-plus seasons for the Stars. Gurianov, 25, is set to be a restricted free agent this coming off-season.

The NHL trade deadline is next Friday at 3 p.m. ET.

Dadonov, 33, is in the final year of a three-year, $15-million US contract he signed with Ottawa in 2020. He was traded to Montreal for defenceman Shea Weber by Vegas last June.

The right-winger has four goals and 14 assists in 50 games this season.

Golden Knights add Barbashev before deadline

The St. Louis Blues traded forward Ivan Barbashev to the Vegas Golden Knights.

In return, the Blues received forward Zach Dean, a first-round pick in 2021.

Barbashev, 27, has recorded 29 points (10 goals, 19 assists) in 59 games in his seventh season with St. Louis.

He has 78 goals and 178 points in 410 NHL regular-season games since the Blues drafted him in the second round in 2014.

Vegas drafted the 20-year-old Dean 30th overall in 2021 draft. The Alberta native has 49 points in 38 games this season with the Gatineau Olympiques of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Tuch hurt in Friday win over Panthers

The Buffalo Sabres' playoff push hit a speed bump on Sunday, with top-line forward Alex Tuch and top defenceman Rasmus Dahlin ruled out from playing against the Washington Capitals.

Tuch was placed on injured reserve and will miss at least two weeks with a lower-body injury, general manager Kevyn Adams said before the game. Dahlin, a Norris Trophy candidate, is considered day to day and requires resting an injury he's been playing through, Adams said.

Without revealing the nature of the players' injuries, Adams said Tuch does not require surgery and is projected to return before the end of the season.

Tuch was hurt in the third period of a 3-1 win at the Florida Panthers on Friday.

The 26-year-old Tuch has been a mainstay on a line centred by Tage Thompson and rounded out by Jeff Skinner, and he ranks second on the team with 28 goals and 62 points — both career highs. He had scored four goals in his past five games, including the game winner at Florida.

"It's a tough loss," Adams said, referring to Tuch. "We believe internally in what we have in our locker room. It's opportunity for guys to kind of step in and play a bigger role. But yeah, it's just a massive player in our lineup from everything he does, not just the offensive side, but you guys see the minutes he plays, the situations he plays."

The Sabres called up Vinnie Hinostroza from the minors to fill Tuch's roster spot.

Adams acknowledged Tuch's injury places what he called "urgency" on trade talks leading up to Friday's deadline.

Buffalo opened Sunday 30-23-4 and in a tightly contested race for the Eastern Conference's two wild-card playoff berths as it tries to end an NHL-record 11-year post-season drought.
