Jason SwansonContributor IMarch 4, 2009

The Ottawa Senators kicked off the NHL trade deadline by moving left winger Antoine Vermette to Columbus, and in return, Ottawa gets goalie Pascal Leclaire.  

Ottawa has also come to terms on a contract extension for Filip Kuba, as both sides agreed to a three-year deal worth $3.7 million per year.

Anaheim defenseman Chris Pronger, meanwhile, is off the table according to his agent.

Toronto Maple Leafs Dominic Moore and Nik Antropov will be traded, according to a conversation TSN had with team president and general manager Brian Burke this morning.
