The Vegas Golden Knights agreed to a contract extension with Mark Stone on Monday, shortly after they acquired the right winger from the Ottawa Senators.

The contract will be for eight years and worth an average of $9.5 million per season, Bob McKenzie of TSN reported. Stone confirmed with the network that he and the team have agreed to a deal but declined to confirm the terms.

The Senators received highly regarded defensive prospect Erik Brannstrom (the No. 15 overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft), forward Oscar Lindberg and a 2020 second-round draft pick that originally belonged to the Dallas Stars.

Stone, 26, has 28 goals and 34 assists (62 points) in 59 games this season. He was set to become an unrestricted free agent following the season.

--The Pittsburgh Penguins made two deals for defensemen, acquiring Erik Gudbranson from the Vancouver Canucks for forward Tanner Pearson, and netting Chris Wideman from the Florida Panthers for forward Jean-Sebastien Dea.

--The Winnipeg Jets acquired forward Kevin Hayes from the New York Rangers for forward Brendan Lemieux and a 2019 first-round draft pick.

The Jets then closed out trade-deadline day with five more moves, bringing back forward Matt Hendricks from the Minnesota Wild for a seventh-round pick in 2020, landing forward Par Lindholm from the Toronto Maple Leafs for forward Nic Petan, getting defenseman Nathan Beaulieu from the Buffalo Sabres for a sixth-round selection in 2019 and acquiring defenseman Bogdan Kiselevich from the Panthers for a seventh-round selection in 2019.

In the Jets' final move of the day, they acquired forward Alex Broadhurst from the Columbus Blue Jackets for future considerations.

--The Philadelphia Flyers traded veteran forward Wayne Simmonds to the Nashville Predators for forward Ryan Hartman and a conditional fourth-round draft pick in 2020. Simmonds, 30, had 16 goals and 11 assists in 62 games for Philadelphia this season.

--The Predators also traded forward Kevin Fiala to the Wild for veteran winger Mikael Granlund in a swap of former first-round draft picks.

--The Blue Jackets acquired veteran defenseman Adam McQuaid from the Rangers for AHL defenseman Julius Bergman and two 2019 draft picks. New York received fourth- and seventh-round selections.

Columbus also acquired goaltender Keith Kinkaid from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft.

--The St. Louis Blues added defenseman Michael Del Zotto from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick.

--Prior to Colorado's Monday night contest against Florida, the Avalanche acquired forward Derick Brassard and a reported conditional 2020 sixth-round draft pick from the visiting Panthers in exchange for a third-round pick in 2020.

--The Montreal Canadiens acquired center Jordan Weal from the Arizona Coyotes on for center Michael Chaput. Both players turn 27 in April, and both were selected in the third round of the 2010 NHL Draft.

--The Carolina Hurricanes acquired forward Tomas Jurco from Florida and dealt forward Cliff Pu to the Panthers in separate trades Monday. In both transactions, the teams are receiving future considerations in return.

--The Boston Bruins acquired forward Marcus Johansson from the Devils in exchange for a second-round pick in 2019 and a fourth-rounder in 2020.

--The Calgary Flames acquired defenseman Oscar Fantenberg from the Los Angeles Kings for a conditional 2020 fourth-round draft pick.

--The Canucks acquired 19-year-old forward Linus Karlsson from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for 21-year-old forward Jonathan Dahlen.

--The Wild and center Eric Staal agreed to a two-year, $6.5 million deal shortly after the trade deadline. Staal, 34, had been slated to become an unrestricted free agent after the season.

--The Rangers signed forwards Boo Nieves and Steven Fogarty to one-year extensions. Terms were not released, but TSN reported the value of Nieves' deal at $700,000. Nieves was set to become an unrestricted free agent in July.

--Buffalo right winger Kyle Okposo cleared concussion protocol and played in the Sabres' Monday road game against the Maple Leafs. Okposo had been sidelined since being punched in the chin by Rangers defenseman Tony DeAngelo on Feb. 15. It was his third diagnosed concussion in three years.

--Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford, who has recovered from a concussion, was activated by the team. Crawford, 34, was sidelined more than two months after his second concussion in less than a year. Chicago removed Crawford from injured reserve and assigned goaltender Collin Delia to Rockford of the AHL.
