Hey, did Colorado actually let Steve Silas go? Kid won "Most Outstanding Defenceman" for the Bulls after leading them in D-points. He's improved his skates, got a good eye and can make plays, and uses his body at the right times. Figured they'd give him a shot...
^It appears that Colorado did lose his rights and he also went through last week's drafted without being picked.
Per Peter Chiarelli, Boston has signed C Alexander Khokhlachev to a contract. Khokhlachev, a 2nd round pick, 40th overall in 2011, has an agreement to play in Russia next season if he fails to make the Bruins out of training camp. The contract with the Bruins will allow Boston to control his rights while he plays in the KHL.
Per their own twitter account, the Oilers have signed David Musil. Musil, 19, had 6 goals and 27 points in 59 games with Vancouver of the WHL. He was a 2nd round pick, 31st overall of the Oilers in 2011.
The Ottawa Senators announced today that the club has signed forward Shane Prince to a three-year entry-level contract. Prince recently completed the 2011-12 season with the Ontario Hockey League’s Ottawa 67’s and helped them advance to the OHL Eastern Conference final, where they were eliminated in five games by the Niagara IceDogs.
This article mentions that "sources say Bryan Lerg (which has already been confirmed) and Geoff Walker have signed with the Avalanche."
His NHL.com player profile also shows him as being Colorado property now too.
Anaheim signed C Rickard Rakell. Rakell, 19, had 28 goals and 62 points in 60 games with Plymouth of the OHL last season. He was a 1st round pick, 30th overall, in 2011. He will make $925,000 on a 3 year/2-way ELC.
Detroit signed LW Marek Tvrdon. Tvrdon, 19, had 31 goals and 74 points in 60 games with Vancouver of the WHL last season. He was a 4th round pick, 115th overall in 2011. He will make $617,500 on a 3 year/2-way ELC.
Red Wings sign Max Nicastro to ELC. Nicastro, 22, had 3 goals and 9 points in 27 games with Boston University of the NCAA. Nicastro was a 3rd round pick, 91st overall in 2008. Nicastro was charged with sexual assault earlier this year only to be recently cleared of all charges.
