NHL TRADES: All 30 NHL teams made deals on one of the most active trading days in league history. Before 3 p.m. in the East on the final dealing day, 46 players and at least 16 draft picks were swapped in a flurry of 24 trades.

The NHL said it was the most number of deals and players moved since at least 1980.

St. Louis found an answer for its goaltending woes by prying Chris Osgood away from the New York Islanders. Osgood missed nearly seven weeks due to an ankle injury, but returned Saturday night before New York embarked on a key six-game road trip that started with a 4-3 loss in Vancouver.

The Blues sent prospect Justin Papineau and a second-round pick in this year's draft to the Islanders. St. Louis also received a third-round pick from New York for the 30-year-old Osgood, who is earning $4 million and can be a restricted free agent at season's end. St. Louis is chasing the Stanley Cup champion Red Wings for the Central Division title.

Detroit shored up its defense by trading for Los Angeles' Mathieu Schneider, a champion with Montreal in 1993 who is joining his sixth NHL team.
