The Senators also received goalie Filip Gustavsson and the Penguins' first-round draft pick this year as well as their third-round selection next year.

The Penguins are also getting back prospect forward Vincent Dunn from the Senators, and prospect forward Tobias Lindberg from Vegas. Vegas agreed to retain 40 percent of Brassard's salary this season.

In 702 career games over 11 seasons, Brassard has 159 goals and 261 assists for 420 points to go along with 348 penalty minutes.

TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun confirmed the team's interest in Brassard Friday morning, but noted the Penguins will need to create cap space in order to take on Brassard's $5 million salary through next season. Brassard figures to slide in as the third-line center behind Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.

This season with Ottawa, Brassard has 18 goals and 38 points in 58 games.

In the end, Jim Rutherford got his man.

The Pittsburgh Penguins appear to be loading up for a shot at a third consecutive Stanley Cup. In 24 playoff games against the Penguins he had nine goals and six assists.

Cole, 29, has put up 13 points in 47 games this year. The Devils added forward Michael Grabner in the first ever trade made between them and the Rangers. "Tough guys in this league, many of them are obsolete because they can't play. We picked up a fourth round pick along the way". He has a 2.16 goals-against average and.917 save percentage with Lulea HF in the Swedish Hockey League.
