  • Jordan Eberle working with 'Shot Doc'
    Jordan Eberle hired a shooting coach this summer.

    Advice: He worked with hockey's "Shot Doc," Ron Johnson to try to help him get back to the form he displayed in 2011-12 when he potted 34 goals in 78 games. "Everyone talks about the one-timer but there's more to it than that," said Eberle. "You can tip it, you can find areas on the ice (to get shots off). I don't even know if I want to call him a shooting coach as much as a position coach." Yesterday, 6:14 pm
  • RNH not worried about trade rumors
    Ryan Nugent-Hopkins isn't letting the trade rumors this off-season get to him.

    Advice: "I try not to pay attention too much ... if it happens, it happens," he said. "I know it's definitely a different group than the one we finished with last season." Nugent-Hopkins has been linked to defensemen like Minnesota's Matt Dumba and Colorado's Tyson Barrie. He registered 12 goals and 34 points in 55 games with the Oilers last season. Yesterday, 3:45 pm
  • B. Schenn expects to keep production high
    Brayden Schenn believes his 2015-16 numbers will be regular contributions for him moving forward.

    Advice: "I feel like I'm getting better year by year and I expect nothing else next year," he said. "... I expect to come in and continue to prove my game in all areas of the ice. When you get the chance to play with good players they make you better as well. We got some good pieces that are part of the Flyers. We have a good team moving forward here. You want to get better individually, but I think the team as a whole will be better this year as well." He generated personal bests last season with 26 goals, 33 assists and 59 points in 80 games. Schenn received a four-year, $20.5 million contract on Monday from the Flyers, which ensures he'll be a key member of the team in the present as well as the future. Yesterday, 2:32 pm
  • Adam Larsson expects to improve offensively
    Adam Larsson is hoping to develop the offensive side of his game as a member of the Oilers.

    Advice: "I think I can take an even bigger step," Larsson said. "There was a lot of focus on defense and penalty kill last year and the next step is to be more offensive, and hopefully, get more power-play time." He expects to take on more responsibilities as a member of Edmonton's defense corps, so his production should increase. Larsson is worth keeping an eye on as a two-way blueliner, but you shouldn't expect him to post 40 or 50 points. Yesterday, 2:20 pm
  • Petter Granberg gets 2-year deal from Preds
    Petter Granberg has signed a two-year contract with Nashville.

    Advice: He is set to earn $575,000 at the NHL level and $175,000 if he plays in the AHL next season. In 2017-18, he will be paid $650,000. The two sides had an arbitration hearing scheduled for August, but that won't be necessary now. Granberg played in 27 games with the Predators last campaign. He is slated to be the team's seventh defender in 2016-17. Yesterday, 1:15 pm
  • Matt Dumba remains unsigned RFA
    Matt Dumba is Minnesota's last restricted free agent remaining who needs to be signed.

    Advice: The 22-year-old defender recorded 10 goals and 26 points in 81 games last season. Dumba's name has come up in possible trade rumors, but so far nothing has materialized on that front. There haven't been many updates on his contract status either. Yesterday, 10:14 am
  • Rundblad, Chicago terminate his contract
    David Rundblad and the Chicago Blackhawks have mutually agreed to a termination of his contract.

    Advice: As a result, there will be no cap hit for the Blackhawks, which could help them try to sign pending unrestricted free agent Jimmy Vesey. "David indicated to us that he wanted to kind of get a fresh start, so I think he's looking to maybe pursue some other opportunities, whether it's in the NHL or maybe in Europe," GM Stan Bowman said earlier this month. He played in just nine games with Chicago last season and has 113 matches of NHL experience over his career. Yesterday, 8:05 am
  • B. Manning, Flyers agree to 2-year contract
    Brandon Manning has reached a two-year agreement with Philadelphia worth $1.95 million.

    Advice: The new deal will avoid the arbitration hearing that was set for August. He registered seven points and 66 penalty minutes in a personal high 56 games with the Flyers last campaign. Yesterday, 7:41 am
  • Rangers agree to terms with Zborovskiy
    Sergey Zborovskiy has inked a three-year, entry-level deal with the New York Rangers.

    Advice: The 19-year-old defenseman played in his second season with the WHL's Regina Pats in 2015-16 and he recorded 25 points in 64 contests. He was a third-round choice by the Rangers in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Yesterday, 7:33 am
  • Wings lock up DeKeyser with a 6-year deal
    Danny DeKeyser has signed a six-year, $30 million contract with the Detroit Red Wings.

    Advice: He averaged 21:48 minutes of ice time per game last season, while contributing eight goals and 20 points in 78 matches. DeKeyser has become a top-four defender for the Red Wings, but he still has work to do before he becomes a viable player in fantasy leagues. Yesterday, 7:16 am
  • Hawryluk wants to add agitating style to FLA
    Jayce Hawryluk is hoping to stay with the Panthers out of training camp.

    Advice: "I think about it every day," Hawryluk said. "My goal is to come in here and make the team this year. I'm going to do everything I can this summer to set myself up for the best chance to do that ... and show them I deserve to be here." He is facing tough competition for a spot behind players like Colton Sceviour, Jonathan Marchessault, Logan Shaw and Corban Knight. Hawryluk also had a sprained ankle at development camp, but he is expected to be ready for training camp. He intends to be an agitating scorer when he makes the jump to the pro ranks. However, the start of his professional career may be in the minors with Springfield in 2016-17. Yesterday, 6:01 am

  • Ben Bishop (ankle/shin) set to skate Tuesday
    Ben Bishop (ankle/shin) is slated to get back on the ice Tuesday.

    Advice: It will be the first time this off-season that he has skated since he suffered a high-ankle and shin sprain in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Yesterday, 5:28 am
  • DeKeyser, Wings talking long-term contract
    Danny DeKeyser's arbitration hearing is set for Thursday, but an agreement on a long-term deal could be finalized before that.

    Advice: "Ideally, Danny would like to do a longer-term deal. The club would like to do a longer-term deal," GM Ken Holland said. "Since they filed, this period of negotiation and time to do your brief for an arbitration hearing has mostly been about discussions on a longer-term deal. We talked Thursday, we talked Friday, we're going to talk again today." He can only receive a one-year deal if his case is heard. Monday, 8:32 am
  • Leafs sign Peter Holland to 1-year deal
    Peter Holland has signed a one-year, $1.3 million deal with Toronto.

    Advice: He tallied nine goals and 27 points in 65 games with the Leafs last season. Holland is projected to be a fourth-line player if he plays at the NHL level in 2016-17. Monday, 8:09 am
  • Brayden Schenn, Flyers agree to 4-year deal
    Brayden Schenn has agreed to a four-year contract with Philadelphia.

    Advice: The new deal carries an annual average of $5.125 million. The two sides narrowly avoided salary arbitration. Schenn just had the most productive season of his NHL career in 2015-16. He compiled 26 goals and 59 points in 80 games. Monday, 7:25 am
  • Lightning re-up with Yanni Gourde
    Yanni Gourde has inked a one-year, two-way contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

  • Kris Versteeg joins SC Bern of NLA
    Kris Versteeg's move to Europe for next season appears to be final.

    Advice: SC Bern of the National League A has announced that he will join the team on a one-year contract. It's surprising that Versteeg won't be playing in North America in 2016-17. In 550 career NHL contests, the 30-year-old forward has generated 131 goals and 313 points. Monday, 6:32 am

  • Peter Holland asks for $2.1 million
    Peter Holland has requested a salary of $2.1 million.

    Advice: Toronto has countered at $900,000. Holland had nine goals and 27 points in 65 contests last season while averaging 14:40 minutes per game. Keep in mind that while $2.1 million seems high for Holland, it's a negotiating point rather than what he likely expects to get. That said, Toronto strengthened its negotiating position by putting him on waivers. Every other team passed on the opportunity to claim him. His arbitration hearing is scheduled for July 25. Saturday, 5:12 pm
  • Peter Holland isn't claimed on waivers
    Peter Holland went unclaimed on waivers.

    Advice: That should help the Maple Leafs build their case for a reduced salary for Holland. After all, every other team in the league just had the opportunity to take him and no one stepped up to do so. Saturday, 12:08 pm
  • Brayden Schenn asks for $5.5 million salary
    Brayden Schenn is requesting a one-year, $5.5 million contract.

    Advice: The Philadelphia Flyers are countering with a two-year contract that would pay him $4.25 million in 2016-17 and $4,369,425 in 2017-18. This is all being presented ahead of his arbitration hearing scheduled for July 25. Obviously when players and teams make their pre-arbitration requests known there is going to be a salary gap and from a cap hit perspective, they're not terribly far off. What is somewhat unusual is that the Flyers have decided to ask for a two-year contract, so the difference between them could actually be larger because of it. If Schenn were to have presented what he wanted out of a two-year deal, he would have likely asked for an annual salary above his current request of $5.5 million. Saturday, 9:08 am
  • Report:Kris Versteeg will play in Switzerland
    Kris Versteeg will reportedly sign with Switzerland’s Bern in the near future.

    Advice: It will be interesting if that does happen given that Versteeg is a pretty established player in the NHL. He might not have been in line for a particularly lucrative deal, but it would be surprising if it turned out that he didn't have any NHL offers on the table. He scored 15 goals and 38 points in 77 games with the Carolina Hurricanes and Los Angeles Kings in 2015-16. Saturday, 1:26 am

  • Leafs put Peter Holland on waivers
    Peter Holland has been placed on waivers.

    Advice: The Toronto Maple Leafs are likely sending a message ahead of Holland's July 25th arbitration hearing. If he clears waivers then it will help the Leafs make the case for him to get a lesser contract during that process. Friday, 10:18 am
