The Flames weren't done with only the Jarome Iginla trade.

The Calgary Flames dealt defenceman Jay Bouwmeester to the St. Louis Blues on Monday night ahead of the upcoming trade deadline.

In return, the Flames acquired a first-round pick and two prospects — defenceman Mark Cundari and goaltender Reto Berra.

In the event St. Louis does not qualify for this year's playoffs, the Flames will receive St. Louis' fourth-round selection in this summer's draft, with the first-round pick being deferred to 2014.

In case you missed it Cherry likes the way Kadri plays (there is video, doesn't start automatically).

After Nazem Kadri scored his second career hat trick Saturday night in Ottawa, the Toronto Maple Leafs forward was a guest of Hockey Night in Canada's Ron MacLean and Don Cherry.

Another trade occurred during the Wings - Avs game last night.

Buffalo Sabres defenceman Robyn Regehr has been sent packing and captain Jason Pominville could be next.

On Monday, the club asked Pominville for a list of eight teams he would not accept a trade to, as per the terms of his limited no-trade clause.

According to TSN, Regehr was traded to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for two second-round draft picks.

Ottawa is trying to prove that Matt Cooke intended to injure Karlsson.

“You know what? I’m going to prove whether it was intentional or not…You watch. It may be public, it may not be public, but it’s between me and the league. I think it was intentional, but you have to be able to prove it,” Melnyk said.

“The force that that skate had to go in through a sock… a sub-sock, then your skin, muscle… then to get to your tendon. Either this guy is is really good or very lucky at being able to do that.”

Once the investigation is over, he will approach the NHL and disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan with the results.

“If I’m wrong, I’m wrong,” he said.
