The trade market is sizzling at the NHL draft.

Day two brought a frenzy of deals with many more goaltenders on the move.

The Vancouver Canucks sent Eddie Lack to the Carolina Hurricanes for third– and seventh-round picks, which created a domino effect Saturday morning.

Carolina sent Anton Khudobin to the Ducks for defenceman James Wisniewski, a cap-clearing move for Anaheim.

The Ducks were busy, getting forward Carl Hagelin from the Rangers in a deal that included Emerson Etem going to New York.

With goalies flying around in trades, the Rangers cashed out on Cam Talbot, getting three picks from the Edmonton Oilers for the 27-year-old.

Edmonton gave up selections 57, 79 and 184 for Talbot on a day it also acquired defenceman Erik Gryba from the Ottawa Senators and traded Martin Marincin to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Dallas Stars didn't want to wait for free agency to shore up their goaltending situation, sending a seventh-round pick to the San Jose Sharks for the rights to pending unrestricted free agent Antti Niemi.

Dallas general manager Jim Nill said a deal is close with Niemi, who will form an all-Finnish tandem with Kari Lehtonen.

One move that hasn't happened yet has to do with Canucks defenceman Kevin Bieksa.

Vancouver president Trevor Linden said he had no update on the club's efforts to deal Bieksa.
