Supposedly the IceCaps/Jets are signing Jason King i'm not sure how good the "Sources" are from this paper. But from the headline it seems like a sure thing.

Chicago signs J.P. Testwuide

Quote:
The Chicago Wolves announced today that they have signed defenseman J.P. Testwuide.

The 26-year-old Testwuide posted five points (one goal, four assists) and 56 penalty minutes in 48 American Hockey League games with the Adirondack Phantoms during his second pro campaign last season.

Phantoms signed three players (Cullen Eddy, Garrett Klotz, Andy Bohmbach)
http://www.oursportscentral.com/serv...es/?id=4266279
Surprised to see Klotz back in the organization since he had a two-way contract with the Flyers but was sent as far as the CHL

Rampage signed Cornell graduate Joe Devin
http://www.oursportscentral.com/serv...es/?id=4266186

Charlotte re-signed Mike Mckenzie

A clever move--it doesn't waste a year of free agent eligibility since both will probably stay in the AHL all year anyway. Have any other teams tried this?

It shouldn't have any bearing on free agency - professional games is what's relevent rather than simply NHL games, no?

It does keep a couple of spots open on the reserve list for the time being anyway.

Group III free agency is based on "accrued seasons", which wouldn't count an AHL contract

Flick and Shaw were drafted as 19 year olds, and like other prospects, the Hawks have exclusive negotiating rights for two years. They're both 20 now.

I can't remember the names, but I know the Wolves signed at least one, if not more, of Atlanta's draftees to AHL contracts.

Yes it happened a few times last year. For example, last year there was :
-Nicola Riopel (drafted in 2009 by the Flyers) signed with Adirondack.
-Michael Pelech (drafted in 2009 by the Kings) signed with Manchester.
-Maxime Legault (drafted in 2009 by the Sabres) signed with Portland.
-Kyle Neuber (drafted in 2009 by the Blue Jackets) signed with Springfield.

In those cases, I don't think it was about saving free agency years. I think it was just a way for teams to evaluate their players at the AHL level and to see if they are worth an ELC.

For the story, none of the four players above ended being signed to an ELC and they all became free agents on June 2011. However, Legault was re-signed by Buffalo's farm team.

I don't understand why they signed LeNeveu with already a veteran goalie (Yann Danis) in Oklahoma City. Why keep 2 veterans goaltenders and not let play a roookie (Olivier Roy)

Depth. A full season in the ECHL won't hurt Roy's development. However, I think that it's very likely that Khabibulin will go on the IR at some point in the season, so Roy shoud get his fair at the AHL level.

I don't understand how Perkovich is back in the mix after the Qualifying offer being an RFA. Weird. I guess the offer expired or something.

Thanks Caley.
