DETROIT -- The Red Wings acquired Mathieu Schneider from the Kings on Tuesday in a bid to strengthen their defense for a run at another Stanley Cup. Detroit gave up center Sean Avery, defenseman Maxim Kuznetsov and two draft picks in a deal hours before the trade deadline.

"I'm very excited to get the chance to win the Stanley Cup. And if there was one team I wanted to go to it was the Detroit Red Wings," said Schneider, 33, a member of Montreal's 1992-93 Stanley Cup-winning team.

BLACKHAWKS: Slumping Chicago traded veterans Steve Thomas and Phil Housley and two others for four draft picks. Thomas was sent to Anaheim, Housley to Toronto, left wing Sergei Berezin to Washington and little-used center Peter White to the Flyers.

BLUES: St. Louis' seemingly endless search for a goalie ended when they acquired veteran Chris Osgood and a draft pick from the Islanders. The Blues also acquired forward Valeri Bure from the Panthers for prospect defenseman Mike Van Ryn. In exchange for Osgood, the Blues gave the Islanders prospect Justin Papineau and a draft pick.

CANUCKS: Vancouver reacquired hard-nosed forward Brad May from the Coyotes for a future draft pick.

HURRICANES: Carolina traded slumping forward Bates Battaglia to the Avalanche for Radim Vrbata.

MAPLE LEAFS: Toronto acquired forward Doug Gilmour from the rival Canadiens for future considerations. Gilmour was a popular captain of the Maple Leafs from 1992 to 1997.

MIGHTY DUCKS: Anaheim also acquired veteran forward Rob Niedermayer from Calgary for young defenseman Mike Commodore and prospect goalie J-F Damphousse.

PENGUINS: Pittsburgh shed six more veteran players and their salaries. In the feature deal, left wing Jan Hrdina went to Phoenix with defenseman Francois Leroux for forwards Ramzi Abid and Guillaume Lefebvre and defenseman Dan Focht. Center Wayne Primeau was dealt to San Jose for right wing Matt Bradley, and right wing Shean Donovan to Calgary for defenseman Micki DuPont and center Mathias Johansson.

RANGERS-OILERS: New York acquired Edmonton's leading scorer, Anson Carter, in a four-player deal. The Rangers also got rookie defenseman Ales Pisa, and sent forward Radek Dvorak and defenseman Cory Cross to Edmonton.

SABRES: Buffalo dealt former Lightning Chris Gratton to the Coyotes for play-maker Daniel Briere in a swap of centers and draft picks. Gratton was the Sabres' second-leading scorer with 15 goals and 44 points in 66 games.

SENATORS-KINGS: Ottawa acquired veteran center Bryan Smolinski from Los Angeles and shipped the rights to prospect Tim Gleason to the Kings.
