Anton Zlobin

Pens' Zlobin Healthy Entering Camp

News: Anton Zlobin (shoulder) is looking forward to entering training camp healthy after undergoing two shoulder surgeries in three years, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Anton Zlobin, a sixth-round pick in 2012, scored 40 goals in the QMJHL but has played just 61 games since turning pro due to injury. While his speed and size (5-11, 205 pounds) don't stand out, he has reputation for scoring big goals -- he scored six goals (three game-winners) in 15 AHL playoff contests. The 22-year-old Russian will be looking to make an impression this fall, most likely in the AHL, as he's playing for a new contract.

Daniel Cleary

Wings Ink Cleary To One-Year Contract

News: Daniel Cleary signed a one-year contract with the Red Wings on Friday, Stephen Whyno of The Canadian Press reports.
Analysis: The veteran Daniel Cleary didn't see a ton of action with the Red Wings last season, playing just 17 games due to some knee issues. He'll give it another go in 2015-16, however, with perhaps another offseason helping with the knee problem.

Kristers Gudlevskis, G, TB

Kristers Gudlevskis

Bolts' Gudlevskis In Line To Open Season As Backup

News: With Andrei Vasilevskiy slated to remain off the ice for the next two-to-three months while recovering from a blood clot near his collarbone, Kristers Gudlevskis is expected to serve as the backup goalie behind Ben Bishop.
Analysis: Vasilevskiy's recovery timetable has him on track to sit out until early November at the earliest, paving the way for Kristers Gudlevskis to stick with the Bolts for at least the first month of the season. Coach Jon Cooper showed a willingness to give Bishop more frequent nights off than some of the league's top netminders last season, but that was due in some part to the reliability Vasilevskiy showed in a part-time role. Though Gudlevskis is a quality prospect, it might take a while before he earns the same amount of trust from the coaching staff, which could result in Bishop bearing a heavier workload to open the campaign, at least until Vasilevskiy is healthy enough to return. That said, because of the overall strength of the Bolts' roster, Gudlevskis should be well positioned to come away with the win nearly anytime he's called upon to make a spot start.

Keith Ballard, D, MIN

Keith Ballard

Ex-Wild D-Man Ballard Leaning Toward Retirement

News: Keith Ballard (concussion) confirmed last week that he's leaning toward retirement, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Keith Ballard is still experiencing concussion symptoms from the head injury he suffered Dec. 9 of last season, and it sounds like he's leaning toward hanging up his skates rather than risking permanent health issues. The 32-year-old had previously experienced several concussions during his NHL career, likely leaving many teams disinterested in Ballard's services even if he opts to keep playing.

9/2/2015

Markus Soberg, RW, CLB

Markus Soberg

Jackets' Soberg Out 4-6 Weeks

News: Markus Soberg (groin) will miss the next four-to-six weeks as he recovers from surgery to repair a sports hernia, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: A sixth-round pick by the Blue Jackets in 2013, Markus Soberg was hampered by an abdominal injury throughout much of last season, ending up with 13 goals and 17 assists in 61 games for OHL Windsor. It's unclear whether he would've been able to make the jump to Columbus this season even if healthy, but the surgery will certainly delay his progress to North American hockey.

9/2/2015

Marcel Goc, C, STL

Marcel Goc

Ex-Blues Center Goc Returns To Germany

News: Marcel Goc signed a one-year contract Tuesday with Adler Mannheim of the German Ice Hockey League.
Analysis: Marcel Goc will return to his native country after failing to attract NHL interest following a nine-point campaign while skating as a fourth-line player in 74 games for the Penguins and Blues. At 32 years old, Goc's career in North America could very well be over.

9/2/2015

Maxim Lapierre, C, PIT

Maxim Lapierre

Ex-NHLer Lapierre Signs With Swedish Club

News: Maxim Lapierre signed a one-year contract Tuesday with MODO of the Swedish Hockey League, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: After skating in 80 games with the Blues and Penguins last season while scoring two goals and nine assists, Maxim Lapierre was unable to generate much interest from other teams as a fourth-line option in free agency. Rather than having to enter an NHL training camp on a professional tryout offer, Lapierre determined it was in his best interest to take the guaranteed money overseas in attempt to rebuild value. The 30-year-old's deal with MODO contains an option for a second season, allowing him to return to North America next summer if he so chooses.

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.

9/1/2015

Joshua Morrissey, D, WPG

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
