Mike Fisher Kids Jersey On trade deadline day, fans are glued to their televisions and refreshing Twitter to see what their team does. But when a move is made, how do the players find out?

June 6, 1986: Traded on his birthday by the Vancouver Canucks with a first-round pick in the 1987 draft (Glen Wesley) to the Boston Bruins for Barry Pederson.

"I was actually working out with some buddies back in Maple Ridge [British Columbia] and it was pre-cell phones and you name it. The GM was trying to track me down. He called my parents' house and my younger sister knew where I was, so she got a hold of me at the gym and she was the one who told me I was traded. She said I needed to get a hold of the GM, so that's how I found out. I was surprised. I didn't hear any rumblings. My third year was more of a challenging year than my rookie year. There were times when I was playing fourth-line center, but I didn't think that I was going to be traded. [After the trade] I was like,'Man, if I'm struggling playing in Vancouver, what's it going to be like in Boston?' That's really what went through my head. I'm like, 'Geez, where is this going?' As soon as I got [to Boston] for my first camp, they put me with some better players to see if I could play, I guess. Right through camp and the start of the year things just really clicked for me here. I always say [being traded] was one of the best birthday gifts I got. I look back on it like it was a great gift."

Keith Hernandez Kids Jersey Oct. 27, 2013: Traded by the Buffalo Sabres to the New York Islanders for Matt Moulson and a first-round pick in 2014 and a second-round pick in 2015.

"In Buffalo, it was early in the year, I think, only about 10 games in and I got a phone call about 9 o'clock at night from Darcy Regier, who was our GM at the time. He just said, 'Hey, Thomas, I just traded you to the Islanders.' And that was it. Five minutes later, I got a phone call from [Islanders GM] Garth Snow welcoming me to the organization and he was telling me someone else was going to be calling me with my flight information, and pretty soon I got another phone call and I had a 6 a.m. flight, so it was a quick turnaround."

March 5, 2014: Traded by the New York Islanders with a conditional fifth-round pick in 2014 to the Montreal Canadiens for Sebastian Collberg and a conditional second-round pick in 2014.

"Actually, that one was a little different because it was on the deadline, so I was actually on the road in Edmonton watching TV and I heard I was traded, but I found out about half an hour later on TV that I'm going to Montreal, but I didn't get a phone call from anyone. But later on I got a phone call from Garth saying, 'Sorry it took so long but they had to wait for the papers to go through' or whatever. So it was a strange thing. I heard I was going to Montreal but no one called me or confirmed it. So I'm like, 'OK, I'm not sure if I'm still an Islander or not.'" -- Scott Burnside

Tony Oliva Kids Jersey June 30, 2015: Traded by the Columbus Blue Jackets with Jeremy Morin, Corey Tropp, Marko Dano and a fourth-round pick in 2016 to the Chicago Blackhawks for Brandon Saad, Michael Paliotta and Alex Broadhurst.

"I was back in Russia that time. And because [of the] time difference, it was in the middle of the night. I got the call, they tell me, you traded to Chicago. And that's it. Ruined my sleep. The first call my agent tell me like it's probably going to be trade. When the trade completed, Columbus GM Jarmo Kekalainen] called me and say, 'Thank you.' Couple minutes later, [Blackhawks GM] Stan Bowman called me and say, 'Welcome to the team and we look forward to working with you.' This is it.

You can plan around and move your stuff from Columbus to Chicago. You have time to find the right place to live. I think if you're traded during the season, it's much harder. Your family going to be staying in your old town and you just be in hotel and play games without your family." -- Scott Burnside
