NHL trade deadline 2021 tracker: Trades, grades and the latest rumours



The clock has hit 12:01 a.m. on April 12.

The clock is now officially ticking.

In less than 15 hours, GMs’ teams are going to be locked; the question is: Will they be loaded? The 2021 trade deadline is here and there’s a short window open for wheelin’ and dealin’. Some of the biggest names are already off the board but there are still players out there who can give teams a postseason push.

NHL TRADE TRACKER 2021: List of deals completed before the deadline

A number of teams will be looking to send soon-to-be unrestricted free agents packing while others will be looking to save almighty cap space. Maybe your team is — new term alert — a “broker team.”

Sporting News is keeping track of all the latest rumours and trades, and giving those swaps grades when they happen.

Latest NHL trade deadline rumours, trades and grades

(All times Eastern)

1:46 a.m. — It’s official, but it’s not the one you think. 

Kings receive: Penguins receive:
2022 conditional third-round pick, 2023 conditional fourth-round pick Jeff Carter (F)

*Kings will retain 50 percent of Carter’s salary.

Kings grade: B+

Penguins grade: B+

The Penguins add a veteran from the West Coast at the deadline — it’s very 2020 Patrick Marleau but Carter brings a couple of rings with him, unlike Marleau, the soon-to-be NHL all-time leader in games played. Carter’s best years are behind him but the 36-year-old can still add depth as a right-handed shot who can play any spot in the forward group.

1:30 a.m — The Taylor Hall trade may be done, but nothing has been announced by either team.

12:05 a.m. — It should be noted that Bob McKenzie dropped this “Bob’s Bomb” around 10:30 p.m., too.

12:01 a.m. — Just after midnight, this came down and all hell broke loose on Twitter. 

Midnight — A quick breakdown of a few of the big trades that have occurred:

MLB trade grade: Brewers acquire Daniel Norris from Tigers



Daniel Norris trade for the Brewers is nothing to phone home about

Milwaukee supporters sure were hoping for some better news, as Norris is currently sporting a 5.83 ERA this season. That’s not the kind of production you want from a reliever, which is why the Brewers receive a C grade for this deal.

Meanwhile, for Detroit, they’re getting a B+ for moving Norris. In return, Tigers beat writer Jason Beck is reporting Detroit is receiving 21-year-old pitching prospect, Reese Olson.

Blue Jays acquiring Twins ace Jose Berrios for Martin, Woods Richardson



The Toronto Blue Jays made a big splash hours before Friday’s MLB Trade Deadline, acquiring right-handed starter Jose Berrios from the Minnesota Twins, Sportsnet’s Ben Nicholson-Smith confirms.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic was first to report the agreement.

Nicholson-Smith reports that the Blue Jays are sending No. 2 prospect Austin Martin and No. 4 prospect Simeon Woods Richardson to the Twins in the trade.

Berrios, who is under team control through the 2022 season, was one of the most sought-after starters on the trade market. He has 3.48 ERA and 126 strikeouts in 20 starts for the Twins this season. The two-time All-Star has spent his entire six-year career with the Twins and outside his rookie season he has never had an ERA above 4.00.

The move gives the Blue Jays a third ace starter to join Robbie Ray, Alek Manoah and Cy Young finalist Hyun-Jin Ryu. It also is the latest blockbuster move in the AL East arms race after the Yankees, Red Sox and Rays all made trades in recent days to add power bats to their lineups.

The Blue Jays enter play Friday, their first home game at the Rogers Centre in nearly two years, fourth in the division with a 51-48 record. They are 9.5 games back of the Red Sox for first in the division and 4.5 games out a wild card spot.
