In other moves Monday:
The defending Stanley Cup-champion Boston Bruins acquired forward Brian Rolston and defenseman Mike Mottau from the New York Islanders for two prospects, center Yannick Riendeau and defenseman Marc Cantin, both of whom will be assigned by the Islanders to Bridgeport of the American Hockey League.
Boston also sent defenseman Steve Kampfer to the Minnesota Wild for defenseman Greg Zanon. To make space on the roster for the new acquisitions, the Bruins assigned Andrew Bodnarchuk, Carter Camper, and Max Sauve to Providence of the AHL.
The San Jose Sharks received left wing T.J. Galiardi, left wing Daniel Winnik and a 2013 seventh-round pick from the Colorado Avalanche for left wing Jamie McGinn, center Mike Sgarbossa and left wing Mike Connolly.
The Ducks, in addition to the Gordon-Erixon trade, acquired right wing Dale Mitchell from the Toronto Maple Leafs for defensman Mark Fraser.
The Tampa Bay Lightning traded defenseman Matt Gilroy to the Ottawa Senators for defenseman Brian Lee and sent right wing Carter Ashton to the Maple Leafs for defenseman Keith Aulie. The Lightning also got defenseman Mike Commodore from the Detroit Red Wings for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2013.
The Edmonton Oilers sent defenseman Tom Gilbert to the Wild for defenseman Nick Schultz. Schultz, the longest-tenured athlete among Minnesota's four major professional teams, took the news hard, his eyes wet with tears when he spoke to reporters.
"Basically all I know is being here, playing here and being part of this team," he said.
The Chicago Blackhawks acquired defenseman Johnny Oduya from the Winnipeg Jets for picks in the second and third rounds of the 2013 draft. Chicago also shipped defenseman John Scott to the New York Rangers for a 2012 fifth-round pick.
