Roberto Luongo traded, and other deals: The day before the trade deadline proved to be busy, too, with several big-name players on the move, including star goalie Roberto Luongo, who was ushered out of Vancouver and sent back to Florida eight years after he was sent packing.
The Panthers dealt goalie Jacob Markstrom and forward Shawn Matthias to the Canucks for Luongo and forward Steven Anthony.
The Anaheim Ducks sent goalie Viktor Fasth to the Edmonton Oilers for a 2014 fifth-round draft pick and a 2015 third-round selection. Edmonton then traded veteran goalie Ilya Bryzgalov to the Minnesota Wild for a fourth-round draft pick this year.
The Ducks also traded forward Dustin Penner to the Washington Capitals for a fourth-round draft pick this year and then moved that pick to the Dallas Stars for veteran defenseman Stephane Robidas.
