Montreal's Nokelainen Scratched

News: Petteri Nokelainen was a healthy scratch Saturday in Montreal's win over Tampa Bay.

Analysis: Though it was a minor transaction, Petteri Nokelainen represents the first move the Canadiens made amid the team's worst start in 70 seasons. We're not expecting Nokelainen to make a difference, but he did win all four of his faceoffs.

Habs Acquire Nokelainen

News: Petteri Nokelainen was traded to Montreal on Sunday along with defenseman Garrett Stafford in exchange for center Brock Trotter and a seventh-round pick, Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: He'll give Montreal depth at center with Scott Gomez potentially out a month or more with his injury. As a former first-round pick, the Habs could have untapped potential on their hands, but he'll likely begin in a limited role upon arrival.

Phoenix Signs Nokelainen

News: Nokelainen signed a one-year contract with Phoenix on Friday, the Sports Network reports.
Analysis: The former first-round pick was never able to gain traction in the NHL, totaling just 34 points in 189 games. He's unlikely to make an impact.

Nokelainen off to Phoenix for pick

News: The Coyotes have acquired C Petteri Nokelainen from the Ducks for a sixth-round pick.

News: Ducks C Petteri Nokelainen scored twice in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Blackhawks. The goals were his third and fourth of the season.
