Breaking down rumours, news Monday

Once again, NHL trade deadline day is here with a whole bunch of deals completed in the days beforehand.

The Florida Panthers have acquired forward Claude Giroux and defenseman Ben Chiarot. The Colorado Avalanche have acquired defenseman Josh Manson and forward Nico Sturm. The Boston Bruins beefed up their defense by acquiring Hampus Lindholm, then signed him to a six-year, $52 million contract. The Toronto Maple Leafs countered by making a deal for defenseman Mark Giordano.

Last year, a similar situation happened, but the Washington Capitals and Detroit Red Wings pulled off an old-fashioned hockey trade involving Anthony Mantha and Jakub Vrana at the buzzer.

Follow along today for deals and analysis. Earlier deals can be found here.
