Jay Rosehill, LW, PHI

Jay Rosehill

Rosehill Stays With Flyers On AHL Contract

News: Jay Rosehill signed a one-year, AHL-only contract with the Flyers' affiliate in Lehigh Valley, Dave Isaac of the South Jersey Courier-Post reports.
Analysis: Jay Rosehill will stick around in the Flyers organization for a fourth straight season, but expect him to skate exclusively with Lehigh Valley, as was the case for all of 2013-14. As an enforcer with limited offensive ability, Rosehill is becoming an increasingly poor fit in the modern NHL, and could very well have played his last minute in the league.

Scott Gomez, C, NJ

Scott Gomez

Gomez Signs PTO With Blues

News: Scott Gomez accepted a professional tryout offer with the Blues on Thursday, Andy Strickland of FOX Sports Midwest reports.
Analysis: After failing to garner a contract in free agency for the second straight offseason, Scott Gomez will again head to training camp on a PTO, as he did last season in New Jersey. Though he wasn't able to crack the Devils' Opening Night roster, he continued to work out with the team after the tryout period ended and was eventually signed to the team when injuries opened up an opportunity in late November. Gomez would end the season as one of the more productive contributors on the offensively challenged Devils, finishing third on the team with 34 points. The Blues boast a far deeper roster of forward talent, but with the news surfacing after Gomez's signing that Patrik Berglund would miss at least four months following shoulder surgery, an opening on the third line could exist for the 35-year-old.

Mike Richards, C, LA

Mike Richards

Charges Announced For Ex-King Richards

News: Mike Richards was formally charged with possession of a controlled substance while entering Canada stemming from a June 17 border stop by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Manitoba, Greg Wyshynski of Yahoo! Sports reports.
Analysis: The Kings determined the incident gave them just cause to release Mike Richards for a "material breach" of his 12-year contract, a decision that prompted the NHL Players Association to file a grievance. The nature of the border stop likely won't affect the outcome of that legal battle, as both the NHLPA and the Kings were aware of the circumstances surrounding the incident. Currently a free agent, Richards is able to sign with any team while the grievance remains underway, but his steep decline in performance over the last few seasons coupled with this ongoing dispute probably has few organizations interested in his services.

8/26/2015

Daniel Carcillo, LW, CHI

Daniel Carcillo

Retirement Imminent For Hawks' Carcillo

News: Daniel Carcillo told Kap and Haugh of WGN Radio on Wednesday that he's "about 98 percent ready to move on" from professional hockey.
Analysis: The news isn't especially surprising after the Chicago Tribune reported earlier this month that Daniel Carcillo was focusing his offseason efforts on establishing a not-for-profit organization for post-career NHL players. Carcillo's rough-around-the-edges game doesn't really fit well in the modern NHL, which has resulted in him receiving limited interest in free agency this summer. Unless the 30-year-old has a change of heart once training camps start up in September, expect him to formally announce his retirement at some point in the near future.

8/25/2015

Tomas Vincour, RW, COL

Tomas Vincour

Avs' Vincour Signs With Foreign Club

News: Tomas Vincour signed a one-year contract with Sibir Novosibirsk of the KHL, General Fanager reports.
Analysis: Tomas Vincour didn't receive a qualifying offer from the Avalanche after skating in seven games with the big club a season ago. The 24-year-old will aim to restore some value overseas before potentially pursuing an NHL return next summer.

8/24/2015

Sergei Gonchar, D, MON

Sergei Gonchar

Pens Sign Gonchar To PTO

News: Sergei Gonchar has agreed to a professional tryout offer with the Penguins, Jenn Menendez of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Now 41 years old, Sergei Gonchar will try to stave off retirement by returning to the team he skated for from 2005-06 through 2009-10 and led to two Stanley Cup Finals appearances. Routinely a 50-point scorer for the Penguins in those days, Gonchar has slowed down considerably with age, and was limited to just one goal and 13 points in 48 games split between the Stars and Habs last season. However, with the Penguins breaking in several young defenseman into the lineup in 2015-16, Gonchar may be able to claim an Opening Night roster spot if the prospects prove too green during training camp.

8/17/2015

Daniel Briere, C, COL

Daniel Briere

Briere Announces Retirement

News: Daniel Briere announced his retirement on Monday, Stephen Whyno of The Canadian Press reports.
Analysis: The former first-round pick played 17 seasons in the NHL with five different teams. The announcement doesn't come as a huge surprise, as the 37-year-old's production has declined immensely over the past three seasons. Daniel Briere had his best statistical NHL season in 2006-07 with the Sabres, racking up 95 points (32 goals, 63 assists) in 81 games. Briere's knack for producing in the playoffs was arguably his most commendable trait as a player throughout his career. He racked up an astounding 116 points (53 goals, 63 assists) in 124 career playoff contests.

8/14/2015

Eriah Hayes, RW, SJ

Eriah Hayes

Hayes Signs With AHL Chicago

News: Eriah Hayes has signed an AHL contract with the Chicago Wolves, the team announced on Thursday.
Analysis: The contract is an AHL deal and not a two-way deal for the NHL, which means that Eriah Hayes is unlikely to find himself NHL time this season and won't have an impact on fantasy leagues.

8/12/2015

Marek Zidlicky, D, DET

Marek Zidlicky

Isles Showing Interest In Zidlicky

News: There is mutual interest between the Islanders and Marek Zidlicky, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis: Should the Islanders consummate a deal with Marek Zidlicky, an unrestricted free agent, it could result in top defensive prospect Ryan Pulock opening next season at AHL Bridgeport. If he signs, Zidlicky would provide the Islanders with a boost at one of the points of their power play, an area where the team struggled near the end of last season.

8/5/2015

Sergei Tolchinsky, LW, CAR

Sergei Tolchinsky

Canes' Prospect Tolchinsky Turning Heads

News: Shugg was extremely impressive at the Hurricanes' recent prospects camp, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Sergei Tolchinsky, who was undrafted two years ago after his first season of hockey in North America, went on to post 91 and 95 points, respectively, in his next two seasons with the Soo Greyhounds of the OHL. Now, video of his dazzling training camp plays are being featured regularly on the Hurricanes' Twitter feed. Looking ahead, there is no doubt that Tolchinsky has the offensive ability to make an impact in the NHL - it's just a matter of when. The most likely scenario is for him to open the upcoming season at AHL Charlotte; however, the Hurricanes are starved for offense, and if Tolchinsky has another strong showing at training camp in September, he could very well skip over the AHL entirely and start the season with the big club. Monitor closely, and don't be afraid to take a flyer on the young Russian in the later rounds of your fantasy drafts.

8/5/2015

Viktor Svedberg, D, CHI

Viktor Svedberg

Blackhawks and Svedberg Agree To One-Year Deal

News: Viktor Svedberg agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Blackhawks on Wednesday, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Viktor Svedberg spent all of the 2014-15 playing for AHL Rockford, posting 14 points (three goals, 11 assists) and a plus-14 rating with 41 penalty minutes over the course of the season. He'll likely begin the 21015-16 season in a similar situation, but could be a borderline NHL player if the Blackhawks suffer injuries.

8/4/2015

Brennan Evans, D, DET

Brennan Evans

Evans Signs With Texas Stars

News: Brennan Evans signed an AHL contract with the Texas Stars on Tuesday, 100 Degree Hockey reports.
Analysis: Brennan Evans is a veteran of the AHL, where he's spent a total of 12 seasons without ever getting an opportunity at the NHL level. Unsurprisingly, the defender is expected to mentor the younger talent with Texas and isn't expected to receive a promotion at any point during the 2015-16 season.

8/4/2015

John Muse, G, CAR

John Muse

Muse Signs AHL Deal With Texas

News: John Muse signed an AHL contract with the Texas Stars on Tuesday, 100 Degree Hockey reports.
Analysis: John Muse is expected to serve as the backup goalie in Texas behind Jack Campbell. The Massachusetts native has yet to make an appearance in the NHL, and that won't likely change during the 2015-16 season.

8/3/2015

Aaron Dell, G, SJ

Aaron Dell

Dell Inks One-Year Deal With Sharks

News: Aaron Dell signed a one-year contract with the Sharks on Monday.
Analysis: The 26-year-old goaltender was solid in 26 games with AHL Worcester in 2014-15, posting a 2.06 GAA and a .927 save percentage in those contests. He will likely serve as the Sharks' primary AHL goaltender this season.

7/29/2015

Dainius Zubrus, RW, NJ

Dainius Zubrus

Devils Release Veteran Winger Zubrus

News: The Devils terminated Dainius Zubrus' contract Wednesday, making him an unrestricted free agent, Frank Seravalli of TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Dainius Zubrus had never been much of a top-flight offensive producer in his eight seasons in a Devils uniform, but he saw his scoring output completely fall off a cliff in 2014-15, as he netted just four goals and 10 points across 74 games. With the Devils looking to give some younger players an opportunity in their forward ranks and Zubrus' ice time likely to decline even further in the coming season, the team decided it wasn't worthwhile to keep him around at his $3.1 million cap hit. The 37-year-old could conceivably latch on in a depth role with another club, but no matter where he ultimately lands, an ascension to fantasy relevance probably isn't in the cards.

7/29/2015

David Steckel, C, ANA

David Steckel

Ex-Duck Steckel Inks Deal With German Club

News: David Steckel signed a contract Wednesday with the Nurnberg Ice Tigers of the German Elite League.
Analysis: The 33-year-old served as a depth forward for the Ducks at AHL Norfolk last season, producing seven goals and 23 points in 76 games. David Steckel is a veteran of 425 games, but considering his age and his impending move to Europe, we may have seen the last of him in North America.

7/24/2015

Turner Elson, LW, CGY

Turner Elson

Elson Inks One-Year Deal With Calgary

News: Turner Elson signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flames on Friday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The FAN reports.
Analysis: Turner Elson played well for AHL Adirondack last season, registering 30 points (17 goals, 13 assists) in 59 games with the team. The 22-year-old will likely spend the majority of the 2015-16 season continuing to develop in the AHL.

7/23/2015

Cody Franson, D, NSH

Cody Franson

Franson Draws Free Agent Interest

News: Though Cody Franson remains unsigned, the blueliner indicated Tuesday that he's in contact with a number of teams, sportsnet.ca reports. "There's probably five or six teams we're talking to. There are some very interested ones, but some teams are in cap situations and all the rest that comes with it," Franson noted Tuesday. "Everything is just kind of slowly rolling."
Analysis: Cody Franson, who is coming off three consecutive one-year deals, is hoping to ink a long-tern contract this time around, though apparently there is nothing imminent on that front. The 27-year-old notched seven goals and 36 points over 78 games between Toronto and Nashville this past season and at this juncture, the 6-foot-5 blueliner remains one of the top talents remaining in free agency.

7/21/2015

Gilbert Brule, C, ARI

Gilbert Brule

Ex-Coyote Brule Signs With KHL Team

News: Gilbert Brule signed a contract Monday with the KHL's Medvescak Zagreb, Murray Pam of The Hockey News reports.
Analysis: Gilbert Brule will do another tour in the KHL after recording 15 points in 44 games for Yekaterinburg Automobilist in 2014-15. The 28-year-old, who was the No. 6 overall pick by the Blue Jackets in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, last appeared in the NHL in 2013-14, skating in three games with the Coyotes.

7/21/2015

Max Domi, C, ARI

Max Domi

Domi Expected To Make Coyotes

News: GM Don Maloney said that he expects Max Domi to make the Coyotes' season-opening roster, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: Max Domi is the Coyotes' top prospect and a huge offensive talent -- he scored 32 goals and 102 points in 57 games for OHL London last year. The 'Yotes have brought him along slowly, but with a rebuild in full swing in the desert, the team now appears ready to see what he can do at the NHL level. He should be among the top rookies in the coming season.

7/18/2015

Mat Bodie, D, NYR

Mat Bodie

Bodie Re-Signs With Rangers

News: Mat Bodie agreed to terms with the Rangers on Friday.
Analysis: Mat Bodie was excellent in his first AHL season in 2014-15, racking up 32 points (five goals, 27 assists) in 75 games with AHL Hartford. He will likely once again spend the majority of the 2015-16 season continuing to develop in the AHL. Don't be surprised, however, if the 25-year-old defender makes his NHL debut this season.

7/17/2015

Trevor Parkes, RW, DET

Trevor Parkes

Parkes Signs AHL Only Contract With San Jose

News: Trevor Parkes signed a one-year AHL only contract with the San Jose Barracuda on Thursday.
Analysis: Trevor Parkes registered nine points in 20 games with AHL Worcester last season. He will attempt to put a solid 2015-16 campaign together with AHL San Jose in hopes of drawing some attention from NHL clubs next offseason.

7/16/2015

Vincent LoVerde, D, LA

Vincent LoVerde

LoVerde Signs Two-Year Deal With Kings

News: Vincent LoVerde signed a two-year contract with the Kings on Thursday.
Analysis: Loverde put up solid numbers for a defenseman last season in Manchester with nine goals, 11 assists, and 63 penalty minutes in 63 games, but he's old for a prospect at 26 and could just be signed for AHL depth at this point.

7/16/2015

Andrew Crescenzi, C, TOR

Andrew Crescenzi

Crescenzi Inks One-Year Deal With Kings

News: Andrew Crescenzi signed a one-year contract with the Kings on Thursday.
Analysis: Andrew Crescenzi registered 15 points (seven goals, eight assists) in 54 games with AHL Manchester last season. He will provide the Kings with organizational depth at forward in 2015-16, and will once again like spend the majority of the season in the AHL.

7/16/2015

Jordan Weal, C, LA

Jordan Weal

Weal Inks One-Year Deal With Kings

News: Jordan Weal signed a one-year contract with the Kings on Thursday.
Analysis: Jordan Weal was fantastic with AHL Manchester last season, racking up 69 points (20 goals, 49 assists) in 73 games with the team. He has a ton of offensive upside, and will compete for a roster spot with the Kings in training camp.
