Trade Deadline Pretty Quiet

On Monday the trade deadline came and went and no one named Rick Nash moved.  It was pretty quiet overall, with a few teams making tweaks here and there. 

The Ducks, who only a couple months ago seemed poised to be sellers, made just two minor moves.   Right wing Andrew Gordon, who was sent to Syracuse a while back, was shipped to the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for defenseman Sebastian Erixon.   Erixon, 22, has spent the entire season with the Chicago Wolves of the AHL. 

Anaheim also traded minor league defenseman Mark Fraser to Toronto in exchange for right wing Dale Mitchell.   Mitchell, also 22, has played with the Toronto Marlies of the AHL and Reading of the ECHL.

Beyond that there were no blockbuster deals or shocking moves to make the deadline notable.
