The Latest on the NHL trade deadline (all times local):

It's quiet so far in Buffalo, where general manager Tim Murray was expected to be active before the NHL trade deadline with several players in the final years of their contracts on the block. The group includes forwards Jamie McGinn and David Legwand, sparingly used defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo and backup goalie Chad Johnson.

The Sabres flew home early Sunday and aren't scheduled to be back on the ice until Tuesday, before the team's home game against the Edmonton Oilers. The game will mark the first meeting between Edmonton's Connor McDavid and Buffalo's Jack Eichel, the two centers selected first and second in last year's draft.

The future is now for the Toronto Maple Leafs, who recalled prospects William Nylander, Kasperi Kapanen and Nikita Soshinkov to replenish their roster after several trades.

The 19-year-old Nylander is the organization's top prospect and was set to make his NHL debut Monday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning, who have said they're not trading pending free agent Steven Stamkos before the 3 p.m. deadline.


10:35 a.m.

The Arizona Coyotes have acquired winger Sergei Plotnikov from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for prospect Matthias Plachta and a conditional seventh-round pick in 2017.

The deal was announced hours before the NHL trade deadline. Signed out of the KHL last offseason, the 25-year-old Plotnikov has just two assists in 32 games. He is set to be a restricted free agent this summer.
