The Calgary Flames have asked defenceman Robyn Regehr to waive his no-trade clause to complete a deal with Buffalo, according to a source.
The veteran has spent his entire 11-year NHL career with the Flames.
Jeff Carter has been traded from the Philadelphia Flyers to the Columbus Blue Jackets.
In exchange for Carter, the Flyers are expected to receive Jakub Voracek, plus first and third round draft picks.
Last season, Carter scored 36 goals and 66 points, he also had two points in six playoff games as the Flyers were eliminated by the Boston Bruins in the first round.

Don Meehan, the agent for Maple Leafs winger Clarke MacArthur, shares the view that his client is headed for salary arbitration with the club.
“It seems like it as of now,” Meehan told the Toronto Sun via e-mail. “However, we will still make all efforts to get him signed.”
In recently asking Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk a couple of questions on the this weekend’s draft, he said the odds of the team trading up are very slim, but the odds of them trading down are pretty good.
“I think moving down is a more realistic possibility,” Nieuwendyk said. “Our guys feel that after a certain point in this draft there are a number of good players and you’d be happy with acquiring any one of them. We don’t have our third round pick, so trying to get an additional pick is something that will definitely be discussed.”
