      Predators' Juuse Saros: Inks three-year deal with Predators
      8h ago

      Saros signed a three-year, $4.5 million contract with Nashville on Monday.

      Saros has established himself as one of the league's best backup goaltenders behind Pekka Rinne in Nashville. He appeared in 26 games last season, registering a 2.44 GAA and .925 save percentage alongside an 11-5-7 record. He should continue posting strong numbers but won't have much fantasy value as long as he remains in a backup role.

      Stars' Dillon Heatherington: Earns two-way contract with Dallas
      8h ago

      Heatherington signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Stars on Monday.

      The 6-foot-4 blueliner appeared in six games with Dallas last season, registering one assist and 26 penalty minutes. Heatherington spent most of his season with AHL Texas, scoring three goals and 17 points for the minor league club. He'll have a shot to make the NHL roster to start the 2018-19 campaign but likely won't have a big enough role to earn any fantasy attention.

      9h ago

      Smith signed a one-year, two-way contract worth $874,125 with Buffalo on Monday.

      Smith registered 17 goals and 44 points in 57 games with AHL Rochester last season and was leading his team in scoring before missing some time with a lower-body injury. The University of Massachusetts Lowell alumnus should see NHL action at some point this season but might not crack the roster out of training camp.

      Rangers' Rob O'Gara: Sticking with Rangers
      10h ago

      O'Gara accepted his qualifying offer from the Rangers for the 2018-19 season Sunday.

      O'Gara was brought to New York as part of the Nick Holden trade with the Bruins last season. He would score just three points in 22 games to close out the 2018 season with the Rangers but was still able to keep steady playing time. Heading into next year, the 25-year-old blueliner should stay in a relatively unproductive, bottom-pair role.

      Rangers' Steven Fogarty: Accepts qualifying offer

      Fogarty accepted a qualifying offer for the 2018-19 season with the Rangers on Monday.

      Fogarty has just one NHL appearance in his career, logging a couple penalty minutes but held off the scoresheet elsewhere. Over the last two years with AHL Hartford, he's tallied 16 goals and 40 points. If the 25-year-old does crack the NHL roster, he won't have a very productive role in the Rangers forward group.

      After being acquired from the Avalanche last season, Bigras spent the rest of the year with AHL Hartford, scoring two goals and 13 points in 18 games. There's no guarantee he'll have an NHL roster spot for the 2018-19 campaign and can be ignored in nearly all fantasy formats.

      Ducks' Adam Henrique: Signs five-year deal with Anaheim
      11h ago

      Henrique signed a five-year, $5.825 AAV contract with the Ducks on Monday, Josh Cooper of The Athletic Los Angeles reports.

      Acquired from New Jersey last season, Henrique potted 20 goals and 36 points in just 57 games with Anaheim after the trade. The 28-year-old center has scored 20-plus goals in four of the last five seasons, including a 30-goal output during the 2015-16 campaign. Heading into next year, Henrique will continue centering a top-six line and have an important role during power plays.

      Roy signed a one-year, $874,000 two-way contract with the Ducks on Sunday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

      Roy was extended a qualifying offer back in June as he entered restricted free agency, and, as expected, he will remain in Anaheim. Roy ended up playing 25 games in the NHL last season after making the jump from AHL San Diego and recorded six goals and one assist in that span.

      Danault signed a three-year, $9.25 million contract with the Canadiens on Sunday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

      After scoring 13 goals and 40 points during the 2016-17 season, Danault scored just 25 points in an injury-shortened 2017-18 campaign. Now that Montreal has officially re-signed him, the 25-year-old forward should slot into a top-six role and look to produce another 30-plus points this season.

      O'Regan signed a one-year, two-way contract worth $874,125 with the Sabres on Sunday.

      O'Regan was part of the return for a trade of Evander Kane. The 24-year-old played in just two games with the Sabres, recording zero points and a plus-1 rating. He thrived with AHL Rochester instead, lighting the lamp six times and mustering nine helpers. The Sabres added three more forwards -- Vladimir Sobotka, Patrik Berglund and Tage Thompson -- in a trade with St. Louis, so it'll be tough to crack the lineup this year as well.

      Dauphin (lower body) inked a one-year, two-way contract with the Coyotes on Saturday.

      Dauphin spent most of the 2017-18 campaign in the minors, totaling nine goals and 20 assists in 50 games. The 23-year-old pivot will likely spend most of his time with the Coyotes' AHL affiliate in 2018-19, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to keep tabs on him.

      Lindholm signed a six-year, $29.1 million contract extension with the Flames on Monday, Mike Kelly of TSN reports.

      Lindholm was acquired by Calgary from Carolina alongside Noah Hanifin earlier this offseason. The Swedish forward is coming off back-to-back 40-point seasons with 27 goals and over 300 shots on net the last two seasons. Lindholm should secure a top-six role in Calgary's revamped forward group during the 2018-19 season.

The former first-round pick is coming off his second full season in the NHL and was a restricted free agent before coming to terms with the Predators.

In 171 career games in the AHL, the Canadian has scored 35 goals and 46 assists in 171 games, but has also played 36 games in the NHL with Ottawa, collecting three goals and three assists.

      Bailey has 52 career NHL games under his belt, including four point in 12 games with Buffalo last season. The 23-year-old winger was injured in AHL Rochester's final playoff game last season but should be ready to go for training camp. Buffalo was incredibly active this offseason and acquired some forward depth, so Bailey will need to battle for a spot on the NHL roster.

He will attempt to stay healthy again this campaign, a feat he's accomplished just once so far in his career.

      Senators' Erik Karlsson: Ottawa unable to offer huge signing bonuses
      3d ago

      Karlsson may have turned down the Senators' July 1 contract-extension offer due to the team not presenting him with sufficient signing bonuses, according to The Athletic.

      The Senators are said to be in a poor financial state, even though GM Pierre Dorion reportedly offered the elite defenseman an eight-year deal that was "closer to $11 million than $10 million." As suggested in this latest report, players are heavily concentrated on earning big signing bonuses and front-loaded contracts since there may be a lockout in the 2019-20 campaign. Karlsson remains with Ottawa, despite how it had seemed like a sure bet that he'd wind up in either Tampa Bay or Dallas. Of course, those teams aren't necessarily out of the running. The reality is that no one truly knows at this point what sweater Karlsson will be donning to start the 2018-19 season.

      Fleury was entering the final year of his contract, but instead will stick with the Golden Knights on a three-year deal that will carry him to age 36. The veteran netminder went 29-13-4 with four shutouts and a 2.24 GAA in his first campaign away from Pittsburgh. While a concussion sidelined him for a large chunk of the season, the Flower took Vegas all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals in its inaugural season. Injuries are no doubt a concern for fantasy owners, yet when Fleury is healthy, he remains one of the league's elite netminders.

      It was only a question of when Hellebuyck's new deal would get done, as the netminder had previously filed for salary arbitration. The Michigan native finally had his breakout performance last year, as he went 44-11-9 with six shutouts, a 2.36 GAA and a .924 save percentage -- all of which saw him finish second in the Vezina Trophy voting behind Pekka Rinne. At $6.167 million AAV, Hellebuyck's deal puts him in line with Braden Holtby, Corey Crawford and Cory Schneider.

      Schneider (hip) may miss the beginning of the 2018-19 campaign, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.

      Schneider remains on schedule in his recovery from the surgery he underwent in May, but the latest update confirms the earlier notion that he will at least miss a significant portion of training camp as he continues to recover. Keith Kinkaid will likely draw the majority of reps in his absence, which could put him in a position to see significant action early on. The Devils' investment in Schneider should make him the favorite to top the team's depth chart again in 2018-19, when healthy, but his grasp on the starting job won't be as firm as it was prior to last season.

Last year, he made his NHL debut and appeared in 11 regular-season games at the top level, posting a 4-2-1 record, 2.75 GAA and .905 save percentage. Still, Lyon is probably best known for enduring a five-overtime marathon outing with AHL Lehigh Valley last May --- he set aside 94 of 95 shots for a playoff win in what culminated as the longest game in AHL history.
