    • Chris Tierney SJ C
      Sharks' Chris Tierney: Inks deal with Sharks
      2h ago

      Tierney signed a two-year, $5.875 million contract with the Sharks on Thursday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

      After originally filing for salary arbitration a couple weeks ago, Tierney and the Sharks were finally able to settle on a number. Tierney is coming off a career season in San Jose, setting career highs in goals with 17 and assists with 23. Tierney will now be making nearly four times what his salary was in 2017-18 as a key offensive weapon off the bench for the Sharks.

      Flyers' Anthony Stolarz: Secures one-year pact
      22h ago

      Stolarz signed a one-year, two-way deal worth $761,250 on Monday, TSN reports.

      It was a tough year for Stolarz, as he recovered from two knee surgeries and played just one game in the AHL and three games in the ECHL. The 6-foot-6, 210-pound netminder will likely spend most of his time in the minors again with Brian Elliott (abdomen) and Michael Neuvirth (hip) locking down the big club's crease.

      Avalanche's Spencer Martin: Secures another year with Avs
      22h ago

      Martin signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Avalanche on Monday, TSN reports.

      Martin didn't suit up in the NHL during 2017-18 and played 34 games with AHL San Antonio instead, producing a .893 save percentage and 3.10 GAA -- the worst stats of his minor-league career. Colorado acquired Phillipp Grubauer via trade from the Capitals and still have Semyon Varlamov (knee) on the roster, so it's tough to see a way Martin cracks the lineup besides an injury.

      Kings' Kurtis MacDermid: Inks two-way deal with Los Angeles
      23h ago

      MacDermid signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Kings on Sunday. The contract is worth $675,000 at the NHL level.

      MacDermid saw the ice in 34 games for Los Angeles a season ago, logging a goal, three assists and 57 penalty minutes. Even if the 24-year-old ends up seeing a larger share of action in the NHL in 2018-19, he would likely receive limited ice time in a third-pairing role.

      1d ago

      Nosek secured a one-year, one-way contract worth $963,000 on Tuesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

      Nosek was a clutch contributor during the Golden Knights' unpredictable playoff run, scoring three goals against the Capitals in the Stanley Cup Finals. The 25-year-old had a more modest stat line during the regular season, with seven goals and 15 points in 67 games. Expect him to remain in the bottom-six for 2018-19.

      Vesey was thought to be headed for arbitration, but he's since signed a contract with New York. He collected 28 points (17 goals, 11 assists) through 79 games with the Rangers during the 2017-2018 campaign.

      Coleman signed a three-year, $5.4 million contract with the Devils on Tuesday, Chris Ryan of NJ Advance Media reports.

      After becoming a restricted free agent, Coleman ultimately became arbitration eligible and had a hearing scheduled for July 22. But, with the two sides able to agree on terms with five days to spare, Coleman will avoid having to go through that process. Coleman appeared in 79 games for the Devils last season, recording 13 goals and 12 assists.

      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.

      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.

      Noesen and teammate Blake Coleman both filed for salary arbitration after not being satisfied with their qualify offers, but now both have agreed to re-sign with the Devils ahead of their scheduled court dates. Noesen is coming off his first full campaign with New Jersey, and he posted career highs in goals (13) and assists (14) at the NHL level.

      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.

      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.

Pulock was a relatively safe option last season, firing 184 shots on net despite playing in only 68 games. This rate of 2.71 shots per game was comparable to that of Artemi Panarin (2.81).

      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.

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.

      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.
