Bryce Salvador, D, NJ

Bryce Salvador

Ex-Devil Salvador Announces Retirement

News: Bryce Salvador (back) announced his retirement Wednesday in an article on The Players' Tribune.
Analysis: Bryce Salvador skated 14 seasons in the NHL, recording 24 goals and 86 assists over 786 games. The 39-year-old spent his final eight years in the league with New Jersey, captaining the team for the last three seasons. Injuries dogged him later in his career, but his leadership and sound positional play from the blue line were attributes that outweighed his lack of offensive contributions. He'll remain in the New Jersey organization as an ambassador for the sport.

Joshua Morrissey

Jets' Morrissey Expected To Open Year In AHL

News: Joshua Morrissey is expected to open the upcoming season with AHL Manitoba, the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Joshua Morrissey, the Jets' top defenseman prospect who oozes offensive upside, is coming off a stellar junior-league campaign in which he produced 13 goals and 25 assists over 47 WHL games. The 20-year-old isn't far away from being NHL ready, but with nine defensemen on one-way contracts entering training camp, the Jets already have a wealth of options at the position to depend on. Though injuries could pave the way for Morrissey to see time with the big club this season, he'll be better served developing his skills further at the AHL level.

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.

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

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.

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.

7/18/2015

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.

7/16/2015

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

Jerome Leduc, D, BUF

Jerome Leduc

Leduc Signs Qualifying Offer With Sabres

News: Jerome Leduc signed a qualifying offer with the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday.
Analysis: Jerome Leduc scored six goals and 19 assists in 76 games with Rochester in the AHL last season and posted a -11 +/-. That was his third season in the AHL, so we'll see if he's able to break into the NHL soon.

7/16/2015

Yann Sauve, D, VAN

Yann Sauve

Sauve Inks AHL Only Deal With Portland Pirates

News: Yann Sauve signed a one-year AHL only contract with the Portland Pirates on Thursday.
Analysis: The 25-year-old will provide AHL Portland with some veteran experience in 2015-16. He tallied a total of four points (one goal, three assists) in 25 AHL contests last season.

7/14/2015

Kevin Czuczman, D, NYI

Kevin Czuczman

Czuczman Accepts Qualifying Offer From Islanders

News: Kevin Czuczman has accepted his qualifying offer from the Islanders, reports Arthur Staple of Newsday.
Analysis: Kevin Czuczman is ticketed to begin the season with Bridgeport of the AHL and would need quite a few injuries on the Islanders blue line in order to see playing time with the big club.

7/9/2015

Bruno Gervais, D, COL

Bruno Gervais

Ex-Av Gervais Signs With German Team

News: Bruno Gervais signed a contract Monday with Eisbaren Berlin of the German Elite League.
Analysis: A veteran of 418 career NHL games, Bruno Gervais has spent the last two seasons exclusively in the minors with AHL Adirondack and AHL Lake Erie. With the 30-year-old unlikely to earn an NHL roster spot in 2015-16, he elected to head to Europe for what likely amounts to a better financial opportunity.

Slava Voynov, D, LA

Slava Voynov

Kings' Voynov To Spend Three Months In Jail

News: Slava Voynov (Achilles) accepted a plea deal Thursday for his domestic assault charges and will spend 90 days in jail and face three years of probation, ESPN.com's Katie Strang reports.
Analysis: Slava Voynov was arrested on charges of domestic violence back in October and suspended indefinitely by the league. The defenseman has yet to be reinstated by the NHL, which will conduct its own investigation before making a ruling on his eligibility. Further complicating matters is that the Kings have instituted their own suspension on Voynov for suffering a torn Achilles tendon in a non-hockey related activity this past spring. His future with the Kings and in the NHL remains up in the air, and it's uncertain when a resolution might be reached.

Will O'Neill, D, WPG

Will O'Neill

O'Neill Signs With Penguins

News: Will O'Neill signed a two-way contract with the Penguins for the 2015-16 season.
Analysis: Will O'Neill spent last season with AHL St. John's in the Jets organization, where he compiled 48 points after 72 outings. Without any NHL appearances to his credit throughout his career thus far, he'll likely spend the majority of the upcoming season in the AHL yet again.

7/2/2015

Jani Hakanpaa, D, STL

Jani Hakanpaa

Blues Prospect Hakanpaa Leaves For Finland

News: Jani Hakanpaa has elected to sign a two-year contract with Karpat of the Finnish Elite League rather than remain in North America, Andrew Allsman of KMOV.com reports.
Analysis: Jani Hakanpaa appeared to fall down the Blues' defensive depth chart at AHL Chicago last season after recording just eight points in 64 games. The 23-year-old was tendered a qualifying offer, but he evidently decided a better opportunity for him existed overseas. He'll return to his native country for the next two seasons, but the Blues will retain his rights.

7/2/2015

Kevin Gravel, D, LA

Kevin Gravel

Kings Sign D-Man Gravel To Two-Year Deal

News: Kevin Gravel signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Kings on Wednesday.
Analysis: At 6-foot-4 and 204 pounds, Kevin Gravel offers good size on defense, but he's a long way off making any sort of impact with the Kings. He recorded six goals and 15 points in 58 games last season.

7/2/2015

Joel Hanley, D, ARI

Joel Hanley

Canadiens Ink Hanley For AHL Depth

News: Joel Hanley signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Canadiens on Wednesday.
Analysis: The 24-year-old saw action with the Coyotes' AHL affiliate in Portland last season, recording 17 points in 63 games. Joel Hanley is probably staring at another season at the AHL level, this time with Hamilton.

7/1/2015

Sena Acolatse, D, CGY

Sena Acolatse

Panthers Sign Acolatse To Two-Way Deal

News: Sena Acolatse signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Panthers on Wednesday, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Sena Acolatse wasn't tendered a qualifying offer by the Flames earlier this week after he recorded 19 points in 38 games with AHL Adirondack last season. The 24-year-old will serve as a minor-league depth body for the Panthers.

7/1/2015

Brent Regner, D, STL

Brent Regner

Panthers Bring Regner Aboard On Two-Way Deal

News: Brent Regner signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Panthers on Wednesday.
Analysis: Brent Regner skated with AHL Chicago in the Blues' organization last season, registered six goals and 23 assists across 71 games. The 26-year-old has yet to make his NHL debut and isn't much of a prospect at this point.

6/30/2015

Patrick Wey, D, WAS

Patrick Wey

Caps Prospect Wey To Retire

News: Patrick Wey has elected to retire after suffering two successive concussions with AHL Hershey last season.
Analysis: Patrick Wey's two-year, entry-level contract with the Capitals was set to expire July 1, and though he likely could have earned another contract with some organization, he decided to put his health at the forefront. The 24-year-old, who was drafted in the fourth round by the Capitals in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, previously appeared in nine games for the parent club in 2013-14.

6/30/2015

Jesse Blacker, D, FLA

Jesse Blacker

Panthers Part Ways With Blacker

News: Jesse Blacker wasn't tendered a qualifying offer by the Panthers on Monday and will become an unrestricted free agent, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Acquired from the Ducks in December, Jesse Blacker spent all of his time in the Panthers organization with AHL San Antonio, where he recorded 18 points across 40 games. The 24-year-old possesses some pedigree as a former second-round selection in 2009, so he'll still likely draw interest in free agency from a number of clubs.

6/30/2015

Chris Pronger, D, PHI

Chris Pronger

Flyers Deal Pronger's Contract To Coyotes

News: Chris Pronger was dealt to the Coyotes over the weekend along with defenseman Niklas Grossmann in exchange for forward Sam Gagner, a conditional fourth-round draft pick in 2016 or a third-round pick in 2017, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: Chris Pronger's playing career came to an end during the 2011-12 season due to post-concussion issues and an eye injury, but he still has two years remaining on the seven-year, $34.5 million contract he inked with the Flyers in the summer of 2009. His contract will cost the Coyotes $575,000 over both of the next two seasons and carries a cap hit of just under $5 million annually, which will help Arizona in their attempt to meet the league's salary-cap minimum. The 40-year-old Pronger, who was hired by the NHL's Department of Player Safety last season, is eligible to be voted into the Hockey Hall of Fame this week.
