DALLAS -- If there was any question whether or not the Dallas Stars would be sellers at the NHL's trade dealine after moving Brenden Morrow to the Penguins, it was confirmed Tuesday as the team traded winger Jaromir Jagr and center Derek Roy.

Jagr, 41, was the team's points leader with 26, and Roy, 29, scored 22 points in 30 games with Dallas this year. Both were accquired prior to this season by the Stars. Jagr was signed to a one-year, $4.55 million deal, while Roy was brought in from Buffalo in a trade that sent Steve Ott and Adam Pardy to the Sabres.

Roy was traded to Vancouver for a second-round draft pick and prospect defenseman Kevin Connauton, according to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, who was the first to report the deal. Connauton is 23 years old and was drafted 83rd overall in the 2009 draft. He's currently playing in the AHL, where he made the league's all star game last year.

Jagr was moved to Boston for a draft pick along with two young wingers, according to Dallas Morning News Stars Beat Writer Mike Heika, who initially reported the deal on Twitter.

RW Cody Payne, 19, was a fifth-rounder in 2012 and is currently playing in the CHL. LW Lane MacDermid, 23, has eight games of NHL experience with Boston over the last two seasons. MacDermid was drafted in the fourth round in 2008.

According to Jimmy Murphy with ESPN Boston, the draft pick in the Jagr trade is a second-rounder, but could turn into a first if the Bruins reach the Eastern Conference Finals.

The NHL's trade deadline is Wednesday.
