  • Andre Burakovsky signs one-year extension
    Andre Burakovsky has signed a one-year contract with the Colorado Avalanche.

    Advice: The new contract is reportedly worth $3,250,000. Colorado acquired Burakovsky from Washington in exchange for the negotiating rights to Scott Kosmachuk, a 2020 second-round pick, and a 2020 third-round selection. The Capitals took him with the 23rd overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, but he never lived up to his potential in Washington. He had 12 goals and 25 points in 76 contests last season. Perhaps a change of scenery will do him some good. Today, 12:28 pm
  • Andrew Copp might get a bigger role in 19-20
    Andrew Copp might play a bigger role in 2019-20 due to the departure of Brandon Tanev.

    Advice: Copp had 11 goals and 25 points in 69 games last season. He averaged just 12:10 minutes per game, which was down from 13:44 minutes in 2017-18. Even if he does play a bigger role with the Jets next season, he will continue to serve as a bottom-six forward and his fantasy value will be limited. Today, 2:33 am
  • Sven Andrighetto signs with KHL team
    Sven Andrighetto has signed a two-year contract with Avangard Omsk of the KHL.

    Advice: Andrighetto became an unrestricted free agent after he didn't get a qualifying offer from Colorado. He generated seven goals and 17 points in 64 games with the Avalanche last year. Saturday, 8:22 am

  • Artturi Lehkonen feels he has a lot to prove
    Artturi Lehkonen feels he has room to improve.

    Advice: Lehkonen had 11 goals and a career-high 31 points in 82 contests last season. The 24-year-old recently inked a two-year, $4.8 million contract extension. "I know I can still play a lot better than I showed last year," Lehkonen said. "Of course, I wasn’t happy in my point production, basically, or how my goal stats were at the end of the year. So I know I still have a lot to prove." Saturday, 2:20 am
  • Flyers, Laughton settle on two-year extension
    Scott Laughton signed a two-year, $4.6 million extension with the Philadelphia Flyers.

    Advice: Laughton had 12 goals and 32 points in 82 contests last season. He had an arbitration hearing scheduled for July 30th, so this contract allowed both sides to avoid that unpleasant fate. His previous contract was a two-year, $1.925 million deal. Friday, 5:44 pm
  • Robby Fabbri signs one-year extension
    Robby Fabbri has agreed to a one-year, $900,000 contract with the St. Louis Blues.

    Advice: Fabbri scored two goals and six points in 32 games last season. His previous contract was a one-year, $925,000 deal. Friday, 2:20 pm

  • Hurricanes add Ryan Dzingel on 2-year deal
    Ryan Dzingel has agreed to a two-year contract with the Carolina Hurricanes.

    Advice: The deal will pay Dzingel $3.25 million in 2019-20 and $3.5 million in 2020-21. "Ryan has proven that he can be an impact player offensively, putting up bigger numbers over each of his three full-time NHL seasons," said Hurricanes GM Don Waddell. "His speed, skill and vision make him an excellent fit for our forward group and our style of play. At 27, he's just entering his prime and certainly had options coming off a 26-goal season, so we're happy he's chosen to be a part of the Carolina Hurricanes." Dzingel set career highs in goals (26), assists (30) and points (56) in 78 games last season, but his production slowed after he was traded by Ottawa to Columbus. He is a versatile player, though, who can be used up and down the lineup. Friday, 7:21 am
  • D. Heinen focuses on improving offensively
    Danton Heinen will be looking to bounce back offensively in 2019-20.

    Advice: Heinen had 47 points in 77 contests as a rookie in 2017-18, but regressed to 11 goals and 34 points in 77 games last season. He signed a two-year, $5.6 million bridge contract earlier this week and if he wants to land a big contract by the end of that, he'll need to show that he can build on his success as a rookie. "I’m going to continue to work on [the little details] because I think if you’re good at the little details good things happen, and you’re put in better spots on the ice. I’m going to continue to work on those details and then when you get chances, grade-A looks or [chances to] be an offensive guy that’s kind of… do your follow up there. That’s the kind of player I see myself being," Heinen said. "Coming into the league, I wanted to be an offensive guy. I wanted to, you know, create more, and I’m going to keep on working at doing that, trying to produce more for the team." Friday, 1:49 am

  • Jason Dickinson signs two-year, $3M contract
    Jason Dickinson has agreed to a two-year, $3 million contract.

    Advice: Dickinson had six goals and 22 points in 67 games last season. He had an arbitration hearing set for July 20th, so with this contract both sides have avoided that unpleasant possibility. "Jason is a conscientious player who plays a very detailed, 200-foot game," said Stars GM Jim Nill. "As last season progressed, he began impacting games night in and night out, and he really established himself during the playoffs. We fully expect him to continue to build upon that and be a big part of our team for years to come." Thursday, 12:32 pm
  • Hynes thinks T. Hall wants to stay with NJD
    Devils coach John Hynes believes Taylor Hall will want to remain with the team.

    Advice: Hall is entering the last season of his contract and doesn't appear to be in any hurry to sign an extension. "Taylor is invested here," Hynes said. "The situation with a contract thing is a contract thing. But when you look at the player-coach relationship, he wants to play. The way I look at it as a coach is he’s all in. If he’s going to be on this team this year then he’s all in to play. If it winds up where his contract isn’t done, it’s not going to affect who is and what he believes in as a person." It certainly doesn't hurt that the Devils have been busy this offseason, drafting Jack Hughes with the first overall pick, acquiring PK Subban from Nashville, and signing Wayne Simmonds. The Devils are looking like a significantly improved group and that might persuade Hall to re-sign. Thursday, 2:39 am

  • Ryan Kuffner training in Detroit this summer
    Ryan Kuffner is spending the summer in Detroit to focus on his training.

    Advice: Kuffner is on the ice three times a week and he's training with Detroit's Darren Helm, Dylan Larkin, and Luke Glendening. After getting into 10 games with the Red Wings last season, the 23-year-old understands just what to expect from the highest level. That said, there's a good chance that he'll start the 2019-20 campaign in the AHL to get more seasoning. Thursday, 2:21 am
  • Kings, Alex Iafallo agree to 2-year contract
    Alex Iafallo has signed a two-year, $4.85 million contract extension with the Los Angeles Kings.

    Advice: Iafallo had an arbitration hearing set for July 20th that's no longer necessary. He scored 15 goals and 33 points in 82 games in 2018-19. This is a solid bridge contract that makes a lot of sense for both sides. By the end of it, we should have a better idea of how Iafallo's career will likely shape out and what qualifies as fair value for him long-term. Wednesday, 2:12 pm
  • Vancouver inks Micheal Ferland to 4-year deal
    Micheal Ferland has signed a four-year, $14 million contract with the Vancouver Canucks.

    Advice: Ferland was one of the biggest names left on the UFA market. He had 17 goals and 40 points in 71 contests last season. He's solid secondary scorer and is just 27-years-old, so he should be fine for the length of this contract. This is a good pickup for Vancouver as it looks to transition from a rebuilding squad into a contender. Wednesday, 11:39 am
  • A. Nylander has an opportunity in Chicago
    Although Alexander Nylander disappointed in Buffalo, there is a big opportunity for him in Chicago.

    Advice: The Blackhawks acquired Nylander from the Sabres on Tuesday in exchange for Henri Jokiharju. There is an opening available for Nylander on a line with Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews, but he'll likely first need to prove himself in the AHL at the start of the 2019-20 campaign. He struggled in 2018-19 with 19 points in 49 AHL games and four points in 12 contests with Buffalo, but there is a lot of offensive potential with him. Perhaps the move to Chicago will bring it out. "The one thing about Alex that’s appealing is that he’s had success playing left-hand right wing," Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman said. "With his offensive talent and his skill level, it’s certainly exciting to think of what he could do when you put him with some of the players that we have." Wednesday, 12:35 am

  • Reid Boucher agrees to one-year extension
    Reid Boucher has inked a one-year, two-way deal with Vancouver.

    Advice: Boucher had 31 goals and 62 points in 56 AHL games. He's a veteran of 133 NHL contests, but the 25-year-old (he'll be 26 in September) will probably end up spending most of 2019-20 in the minors. Tuesday, 5:07 pm

  • Rocco Grimaldi's arb. hearing set for Aug 4
    Rocco Grimaldi has an arbitration hearing set for August 4th.

    Advice: Grimaldi had five goals and 13 points in 53 contests in 2018-19. It wouldn't be surprising to see the Predators and Grimaldi agree to terms before the hearing. Tuesday, 12:42 pm

    Rocco Grimaldi Nsh - C,LW,RW
  • Sheldon Dries' arb. hearing is set for Aug 4
    Sheldon Dries' arbitration hearing is set for August 4th.

  • Charles Hudon's arb. hearing is set for Aug 2
    Charles Hudon's arbitration hearing is scheduled for August 2nd.

    Advice: Hudon has three goals and five points in 32 games last season. Montreal and Hudon can avoid the hearing by agreeing to terms ahead of time. Tuesday, 12:29 pm
  • Chandler Stephenson's arb. date set for Aug 1
    Chandler Stephenson's arbitration hearing will be held on August 1st.

    Advice: Stephenson he had five goals and 11 points in 64 contests in 2018-19. He finished a two-year, $1.3 million contract. Tuesday, 12:26 pm
