What seemed to be a "done deal" between the Calgary Flames and Minnesota Wild involving forward Jason Zucker reportedly "fell through" Monday, according to The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun, although it's not clear why.

Zucker recorded a career-high 64 points last season, and the Wild rewarded the speedy winger with a five-year, $27.5-million deal. The 27-year-old has 15 goals and 16 assists this season.

It was reported Monday that talks between the Flames and Ottawa Senators regarding forward Mark Stone also fell apart late Sunday night.

Calgary managed to acquire defenseman Oscar Fantenberg from the Los Angeles Kings, but any attempts to bolster the Flames' forward depth at the trade deadline were unsuccessful.

On the other side, it was a busy weekend for Wild general manager Paul Fenton, who played both deadline buyer and seller. The Wild added forwards Kevin Fiala and Ryan Donato while parting with forwards Charlie Coyle, Matt Hendricks, and Mikael Granlund.
