Player Notes

  • Pens three-year contract
    Mittelstadt signed a three-year, $17.25 million deal with Colorado on Tuesday.

    Advice: Mittelstadt put up solid numbers for the Avs after being acquired at the trade deadline last season. The 25-year-old center garnered four goals on 25 shots to go with six helpers, 12 hits and eight blocks in 18 appearances. Scheduled to be a restricted free agent this offseason, Mittelstadt avoids a protracted contract negotiation by getting this deal done early. Heading into the 2024-25 campaign the Minnesota native should be capable of reaching the 50-point threshold for a third consecutive season and even challenging for 60-plus.

  • Staying with club
    DeMelo inked a four-year, $19.6 million contract with Winnipeg on Tuesday.

    Advice: DeMelo was able to get a new deal signed ahead of the start of free agency Monday, tying himself to the Jets for another four seasons. Last year, the veteran blueliner played in all 82 regular-season contests while putting up three goals, 28 assists and 83 shots. While DeMelo is never going to be a Norris Trophy candidate, he should be able to replicate that production next season, making him a decent mid-range fantasy target. Rotowire.com Today, 8:09 am
  • Snags two-way deal
    Bongiovanni agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with Ottawa on Tuesday.

    Advice: Bongiovanni has yet to make his NHL debut after originally signing with Winnipeg coming out of Quinnipiac University. In the minors this season, the 24-year-old center notched 16 goals and nine assists in 48 combined games for AHL Manitoba and AHL Belleville. At this point, the Michigan native looks like a long shot to become a full-time NHL player, though his new two-way deal will allow him to be on the list of potential call-ups during the 2024-25 campaign.

  • Contributes assist in loss
    Ceci posted an assist and two hits in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Panthers in Game 7.

    Advice: Ceci set up a breakaway goal for Mattias Janmark in the first period. The helper ended a nine-game drought for Ceci, who was also scratched in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals. The 30-year-old defenseman had five points, 24 shots on net, 37 hits, 30 blocked shots and a minus-5 rating over 24 playoff outings. He's under contract for 2024-25, but with that being the last year on his deal, the Oilers may shop him around if they want to remodel their blue line. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 9:20 pm
  • Scores lone goal in Game 7 loss
    Janmark scored a goal in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Panthers in Game 7.

    Advice: Janmark had four points over the last four games, but the Oilers weren't able to complete a comeback for the ages. The 31-year-old forward produced eight points in 25 playoff outings after being limited to 12 points in 71 regular-season contests. He's one of seven NHL-level unrestricted free-agent forwards for the Oilers, and it's unclear if he'll re-sign with the team. Janmark's defensive skills could make him a coveted depth option for any number of teams if he makes it to the market July 1. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 9:17 pm
