  • Lee Stempniak heads to Carolina
    Lee Stempniak has signed a two-year/$5 million contract with the Carolina Hurricanes.

    Advice: Stempniak is getting a nice raise from the $850,000 contract he signed with the Devils last off-season. He managed 16 goals and 41 points for New Jersey in 63 games before he was dealt to Boston where he had 10 points in 19 games. All-in-all, he had a good fantasy season last year but don't expect 51 points this season. A 40 point year is more likely so draft him accordingly. Today, 11:31 am
  • Yannick Weber joins Predators
    Yannick Weber has agreed to join the Nashville Predators on a one-year contract.

    Advice: He will earn $575,000. Yannick is far from a replacement for Shea Weber, who was traded to Montreal in exchange for P.K. Subban, and will be a depth player on the back end for the Predators. He chipped in seven assists in 45 games for the Canucks last season. Today, 11:25 am
  • Habs sign Zach Redmond to two-year deal
    The Montreal Canadiens have signed Zach Redmond to a two-year/$1.225 million deal.

  • Al Montoya signs with the Canadiens
    The Montreal Canadiens have signed Al Montoya to a one-year contract.

    Advice: The Canadiens have a good backup for Carey Price but hopefully will not have to rely on Montoya as much as they had to rely on their backups last season as Price missed most of the season with injuries. Montoya was 12-7-3 last season with a 2.18 GAA and a .919 save percentage. Look for similar peripherals this season and he should see action in 20-25 games. Today, 10:39 am

    Advice: His AAV on the contract is $650,000, according to a team source. Trotman suited up in a career high 38 games for Boston last season and he contributed seven points as well as 60 shots. Today, 10:28 am

  • Vernon Fiddler off to New Jersey
    Vernon Fiddler has signed a one-year deal worth $1.25 million deal with the New Jersey Devils.

    Advice: Nice move by the Devils as Fiddler is a great bottom-two center. He will not be a great scorer but he is a good penalty killer as well as very good on the draw. He also will be good in the locker room and that never hurts. Do not take him in fantasy drafts however. Today, 9:58 am
  • Coyotes get Jamie McGinn on a 3-year deal
    Arizona has inked Jamie McGinn to a three-year contract worth $10 million.

    Advice: McGinn had 22 goals and 39 points in 84 games between Buffalo and Anaheim last season. Today, 9:55 am
