Kyle Brodziak, C, MIN

Kyle Brodziak

Brodziak Signs With Blues

News: Kyle Brodziak agreed to a one-year contract with the Blues on Thursday.
Analysis: Kyle Brodziak spent the last six seasons with the Minnesota Wild, but the 31-year old will now head to the Blues. During the 2014-15 season, Brodziak finished with nine goals and 11 assists while playing in 73 games. His fantasy value was limited to just those in deeper fantasy leagues during that span, so we'll have to wait and see if a fresh start in St. Louis is enough to improve his value.

James Wright, C, WPG

James Wright

Isles Sign Wright To Two-Way Deal

News: James Wright signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Islanders on Thursday.
Analysis: James Wright skated in the KHL last season, posting 19 points in 53 games for Zagreb Medvescak. He's previously appeared in 146 NHL games with the Jets and Lightning, but the Islanders seem to be viewing him strictly as a depth option for their AHL squad.

10:45 AM

Bracken Kearns, C, BOS

Bracken Kearns

Isles Add To Forward Depth With Kearns

News: Bracken Kearns signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Islanders on Thursday.
Analysis: The 34-year-old Bracken Kearns played overseas last season, racking up 20 points in 45 games in the Finnish Elite League. He'll serve as a depth option on the wing for the Islanders at AHL Bridgeport.

10:40 AM

Ben Holmstrom, C, CAR

Ben Holmstrom

Isles Sign Holmstrom To Two-Way Deal

News: Ben Holmstrom signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Islanders on Thursday.
Analysis: Ben Holmstrom suited up for AHL Charlotte in the Hurricanes organization last season, accruing five goals and 15 assists in 62 games. He'll function as forward depth in the minors for the Islanders.

8:31 AM

Jeremy Welsh, C, STL

Jeremy Welsh

Blues Re-Sign Welsh To One-Year Deal

News: Jeremy Welsh re-signed with the Blues on Tuesday on a one-year, two-way contract.
Analysis: Jeremy Welsh was one of the more productive members of the Blues' AHL affiliate in Chicago last season, as he finished fourth on the team with 41 points. The 27-year-old will stick around with the organization in a minor-league depth role.

8:29 AM

Pat Cannone, C, STL

Pat Cannone

Blues Re-Sign Cannone On Two-Way Deal

News: Pat Cannone re-signed with the Blues on a one-year, two-way contract Wednesday.
Analysis: Pat Cannone saw time in 64 games for AHL Chicago last season, finishing second on the team with 47 points. At 28 years old and with his NHL debut still yet to arrive, Cannone doesn't have much upside at this stage of his development.

7:32 AM

Rob Flick, C, BOS

Rob Flick

Panthers Sign AHL Forward Flick

News: Rob Flick signed a one-year contract with the Panthers on Thursday, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: The former fourth-round draft pick in 2010 spent last season with the Bruins organization, skating in 65 games for AHL Providence and producing 24 points. He'll serve as minor-league depth for the Panthers' affiliate in San Antonio.

Shawn Horcoff, C, DAL

Shawn Horcoff

Horcoff Signs One-Year Deal With Ducks

News: Shawn Horcoff signed a one-year, $1.75 million contract with the Ducks on Wedesnday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
Analysis: As he enters his 15th NHL season, Shawn Horcoff is essentially looking for a team that gives him a good opportunity to contribute. Anaheim seems to present that chance, at least while Nate Thompson (shoulder) remains sidelined for the season's first month or longer. Once Thompson is healthy, Horcoff's ability to play the wing may allow him to maintain a spot on the Ducks' third or fourth line.

7/1/2015

Marc Savard, C, BOS

Marc Savard

Savard Traded To Panthers

News: The Panthers acquired Marc Savard's (concussion) contract Wednesday in a deal that also sent Jimmy Hayes to the Bruins for Reilly Smith, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Marc Savard -- who is not expected to resume his playing career -- has not played in the NHL since the 2010-11 campaign due to concussion issues, but the move frees up $4.027 million worth of salary cap space for the Bruins in each of the next two seasons.

Mike Richards, C, LA

Mike Richards

Report: Border Stop Why Kings Terminated Richards

News: Mike Richards had his contract terminated by the Kings on Monday after he was allegedly stopped by police June 17 and questioned about illegal presciption drugs near a Canadian border crossing, according to a report from TMZ Sports.
Analysis: Mike Richards reportedly wasn't charged with a crime during the police stop, but was asked about the prescription painkiller Oxycodone. It's not clear from the report if Richards was even carrying the drug in question at the time, though the Kings evidently determined from the evidence that the incident represented a "material breach" of the forward's contract with the team. The Kings were thought to be pursuing a buyout of the remainder of Richards' 12-year, $69 million contract, so the timing of the report will likely lead the NHLPA to investigate the situation closely. Regardless of the outcome, Richards is officially an unrestricted free agent and will be free to sign with any team.

6/30/2015

Stephen Weiss, C, DET

Stephen Weiss

Red Wings Buy Out Weiss

News: The Red Wings bought out the remaining three years on Stephen Weiss' contract Tuesday, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: The Red Wings will owe $16 million to Stephen Weiss, who was appeared in just 78 games during his two seasons with the team as a result of injury. He showed that he still had some offensive ability in his repertoire in the instances he was healthy last season (nine goals, 25 points in 52 games), but at 32 years old, it's doubtful that he'll reemerge as a 50-point scorer in the remaining years of his career. Weiss will become an unrestricted free agent and isn't likely to command a hefty salary figure on the open market.

6/30/2015

Alex Broadhurst, C, CHI

Alex Broadhurst

Blue Jackets Pick Up Broadhurst In Saad Trade

News: Alex Broadhurst was acquired Tuesday by the Blue Jackets in the deal that also sent forward Brandon Saad and defenseman Michael Paliotta to Columbus. In return, the Blackhawks will receive forwards Artem Anisimov, Marko Dano, Jeremy Morin, and Corey Tropp, along with a 2016 fourth-round draft choice.
Analysis: Saad is the headliner of the deal, but the additions of Alex Broadhurst and Paliotta should help bolster the depth of the Blue Jackets' prospect pool. The 22-year-old Broadhurst tallied six goals and 14 points in 29 games for AHL Rockford last season, and will presumably open the 2015-16 campaign at the Jackets' minor-league affiliate in Columbus. The 5-foot-10 winger is probably still a year or two away from potentially making an impact with the parent club.

6/29/2015

Brandon McMillan, C, VAN

Brandon McMillan

Canucks, McMillan Part Ways

News: Brandon McMillan wasn't tendered a qualifying offer by the Canucks on Monday and will become a free agent, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Brandon McMillan played in eight games last season for the Canucks, notching one point. He'll likely try to earn a fourth-line role with another club this coming season.

6/29/2015

Luke Adam, C, CLB

Luke Adam

Jackets Don't Tender Adam

News: Luke Adam wasn't tendered a contract by the Blue Jackets on Monday and will become an unrestricted free agent.
Analysis: Luke Adam appeared in only three games with the Blue Jackets last season, but that was likely only a byproduct of the team enduring substantial hits to its depth due to injury. The 25-year-old will try to land an AHL spot with whichever organization he joins this offseason.

6/29/2015

Philippe Paradis, C, TB

Philippe Paradis

Bolts Tender Qualifying Offer To Paradis

News: Philippe Paradis has been tendered a qualifying offer by the Lightning.
Analysis: It just means the team retains his rights while the two sides continue to negotiate. It looks like a new contract is the future for this depth player.

6/27/2015

Scott Gomez, C, NJ

Scott Gomez

Gomez Will Not Return To Devils Next Season

News: The Devils will not attempt to re-sign Scott Gomez in the offseason, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: The Devils are likely trying to get younger. Unfortunately, the 35-year-old Scott Gomez simply doesn't fit into those plans. However, someone will likely take a chance on the veteran forward, as he has been able to remain relatively productive even as he has gotten up there in age. He managed to tally 34 points in 58 games with the Devils in 2014-15, and can still serve as a valuable offensive contributor when healthy.

6/25/2015

Jarret Stoll, C, LA

Jarret Stoll

Kings' Stoll Has Felony Charge Dismissed

News: Jarret Stoll's felony drug possession charge was dismissed and reduced to two misdemeanors on Thursday, ESPN's Katie Strang reports.
Analysis: Getting the felony charge reduced to two misdemeanors is obviously a huge win for Jarret Stoll and his legal team, but it isn't clear what effect, if any, the legal victory will have on the 33-year-old veteran's attractiveness in the free agent market. The Kings reportedly have no intention of re-signing Stoll, so he will likely become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

6/22/2015

Alex Friesen, C, VAN

Alex Friesen

Canucks Extend Friesen

News: Alex Friesen signed a two-year, $575,000 contract extension with the Canucks on Monday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: Alex Friesen's two-way deal will give the Canucks the option of stashing him with the parent club or assigning him to AHL Utica out of training camp, with the latter scenario being the likelier bet. The 24-year-old provided 10 goals and 20 assists across 60 regular-season matches with Utica.

6/17/2015

Stephane Da Costa, C, OTT

Stephane Da Costa

Ex-NHLer Da Costa Re-Ups With KHL Club

News: Stephane Da Costa re-signed Wednesday with CSKA Moscow on a two-year contract, Igor Eronko of Sports.ru reports.
Analysis: After a productive 2013-14 campaign with the Senators' AHL affiliate in Birmingham, Stephane Da Costa bolted for the KHL last summer. He immediately made his mark in Russia, tallying 30 goals and 32 assists in 46 games to finish second in the league in scoring. Still only 25 years old, Da Costa could make his way back to North America once his commitment to CSKA expires.

6/12/2015

Jason Dickinson, C, DAL

Jason Dickinson

Stars' Dickinson Gains Pro Experience

News: Jason Dickinson played in five AHL games -- two regular-season contests and three in the playoffs -- at the end of his junior year, giving the 19-year-old center his first taste of pro hockey.
Analysis: The 2013 first-round draft pick probably isn't ready for the NHL yet, but he got a taste of pro life this season, putting in three assists in his two regular-season games. That came on the heels of a great season captaining the Guelph Storm of the OHL, where he had 27 goals and 44 assists in 56 contests.

6/8/2015

Casey Wellman, C, WAS

Casey Wellman

Ex-Capital Wellman Signs With KHL Club

News: Casey Wellman has signed a one-year contract with Spartak Moscow of the KHL, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: The 27-year-old Casey Wellman spent all of last season with AHL Hershey in the Capitals' organization, collecting 25 goals and 29 assists across 73 games. Wellman's production has been more modest in his 54 career NHL games, and he seemed poised to settle into an organizational depth role had he elected to remain in North America. Instead, he'll presumably take on a more featured role in the KHL, which could allow him to build up his value and warrant more interest should he elect to pursue a return to the NHL next summer.

6/4/2015

Vladimir Sobotka, C, STL

Vladimir Sobotka

Former Blue Sobotka To Stick In KHL

News: Vladimir Sobotka has decided to remain with KHL Avangard Omsk for the 2015-16 season rather than return to the Blues, Yahoo! Sports reports.
Analysis: After the Blues awarded him a one-year, $2.7 million contract following an arbitration hearing, a disappointed Vladimir Sobotka surprisingly chose to bolt for the KHL, where Omsk was able to offer him a more lucrative and tax-free three-year, $12 million deal. Though Sobotka would likely prefer to play in the world's top league, the financial security offered by the KHL club was too tempting to ignore. He'll have an out clause for the final year of his contract next summer that would allow him to rejoin the Blues, but he'd once again have to accept the one-year, $2.7 million offer before becoming eligible for free agency.

5/28/2015

Andrew Desjardins, C, CHI

Andrew Desjardins

Blackhawks' Desjardins Dishes Out Two In Win

News: Andrew Desjardins supplied two assists in Wednesday's Game 6 win over the Ducks.
Analysis: Andrew Desjardins' first assist required a particularly resilient effort, as he chased down a loose puck and dumped it over to Andrew Shaw, who would give the Blackhawks a two-goal advantage. Valued mostly for his steady, physical play on the back end, Desjardins typically doesn't see much involvement on the attack, and he has only three points across 14 postseason contests.

5/26/2015

James Sheppard, C, NYR

James Sheppard

Rangers' Sheppard Scores First Playoff Goal

News: James Sheppard scored his first goal of the playoffs in Tuesday's Game 6 against the Lightning, tallying the eventual game-winning tally in the third period.
Analysis: James Sheppard played a game-low (among Rangers) 8:35 in fourth-line duty, but scored a hard-working goal to put the Rangers up 4-1. It was the second tally of what ended up being a five-goal period for the Rangers, with Tampa chipping in a pair of goals to turn Sheppard's into the game-winner. It was his first point since May 10 against Washington.

5/25/2015

Dylan Larkin, C, DET

Dylan Larkin

Wings' Larkin Scores First Two Professional Goals

News: Dylan Larkin scored twice in Grand Rapids' (AHL) 4-2 Game 2 win over Utica on Monday.
Analysis: Dylan Larkin decided to leave the University of Michigan after one season and signed his entry-level contract with Detroit last week. He has since joined the Griffins for their Western Conference final against Utica. Larkin had a pair of shots in his professional debut on Sunday and then potted the two markers on Monday. He had a monster year for the Wolverines (15G, 47P in 35GP) and he has quickly turned into one of the better prospects in the league.
