News:Petr Straka has signed an entry-level contract with the Flyers.
Analysis:Petr Straka played for Baie-Comeau Drakkar of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League this season, recording 82 points (41 goals). His entry-level contract is worth $925,000 over three years and is set to begin in the 2013-14 season.
News: The Blue Jackets have elected not to sign Petr Straka to an entry-level contract, and he'll return to the draft-eligible pool.
Analysis: This is a very odd decision by a team that should be beating every bush to add talent to its depth chart. The 2010 second-round pick has seen his development stall the last couple of seasons in part due to injuries, but Petr Straka still managed a point-a-game pace in this year's QMJHL playoffs and would appear to have some upside yet.
