 WASHINGTON (AP) -Accustomed to being sellers at the NHL trade deadline, the Washington Capitals set out to help their playoff push with a flurry of deals Tuesday, including adding center Sergei Fedorov and goalie Cristobal Huet.
Washington got Fedorov, the 1994 Hart Trophy winner as league MVP, from the Columbus Blue Jackets for defenseman Theo Ruth, who was a 2007 second-round draft pick.
The Capitals picked up Huet, a 2007 All-Star, from the Montreal Canadiens for a 2009 second-round draft pick.
And, in yet another swap shortly before Tuesday's trade deadline, Washington acquired left wing Matt Cooke from the Vancouver Canucks for left wing Matt Pettinger.
The Capitals have jumped from last in the entire NHL in late November to within striking distance of first place in the Southeast Division. They headed into Tuesday night's game against the Minnesota Wild with a 28-27-8 mark for 64 points, five behind division leader Carolina.
Fedorov is 38 and in his 17th NHL season. He has nine goals and 19 assists this season.
The Russian, a six-time All-Star, has 470 goals and 663 assists in the NHL for Detroit, Anaheim and Columbus.
Ruth was chosen in the second round of the 2007 draft by Washington. He is a freshman at Notre Dame.
Huet went 21-12-6 with a 2.55 goals-against average for Montreal this season, splitting starts with rookie Carey Price.
The Capitals' top goalie has been Olie Kolzig, who is 21-19-6 with a 3.03 GAA.
Cooke has seven goals and nine assists in 61 games this season, his ninth in the NHL, all with Vancouver.
