When is the 2017 NHL trade deadline?

A question that comes up a lot this time of year is when exactly the NHL trade deadline takes place. Many different theories appear online in absence of any announcement from the NHL, who for some reason doesn't like to make a big fuss about the date despite it being a huge deal for fans.

So, after a lot of searching the corners of the internet for this date, it appears the 2017 NHL trade deadline is set for March 1st, 2017.

Several sources, including this article by Pierre LeBrun, point to that being the correct date. At the time of this post it can't be found on NHL.com, TSN, Sportsnet or any other major website for some reason. Some sites have incorrectly pegged the deadline for late February.
