The Philadelphia Flyers are happy to announce the re-signing of LW Simon Gagne to a 2 year, 4.97M(2.485AAV) contract. Philadelphia has always been Simon's true home in the NHL, and we are happy to keep him here. The contract includes a no movement clause.
The Boston Bruins announced they have come to terms with free agent defenseman Chris Summers on a two year, two way contract worth $585k NHL, $125K AHL. "We're happy to add a good young defenseman like Chris to our organization. Chris has over two seasons of AHL level experience and we feel he is ready to compete for an NHL job. He's a good sized mobile defender with blazing speed and we see some potential here."
The Pittsburgh Penguins are pleased to announce the re-signing of hall-of-famer Jarome Iginla to a 5 year contract worth $4.5M per season and a NTC. Jarome has been moved all around the lineup since being traded to Pittsburgh, but that will be put to a stop this coming season. Iginla will be cemented to Sidney Crosby's RW where he is best suited for this team. We look for Crosby and Iginla to be one of the top lines in the league for years to come.
Montreal Canadiens have reach a contract agreement with winger Bryan Bickell. A 5 year 13.75mil$ deal that will pay Bryan 3.5, 3, 3, 2.5 and 1.75mil$ for a cap hit of 2.75mil$. The deal also include a NTC for the first 2 year of the deal followed by a limited NTC (list of 8 teams he won't accept a trade to) for year 3 and 4 of the deal. The final year of the contract do not have any NTC restriction.
''Thrilled to add a power winger like Bryan to our club. It's no secret we needed to add size and grit to our team and we think Bryan was the perfect player to get on the market. His net presence will also be more than welcome on the PP. Bryan can play on any of our top 3 lines and we expect with to line up on the left side of Tomas Plekanec and Brendan Gallagher.''
Montreal also as concluded a 1 year deal with winger Rostislav Olesz. A 2way deal that will pay Rostislav 675k$ in the NHL and 200k$ in the AHL.
''Olesz had a few tough years being buried in the minors but we think he can be a solid player in the NHL again if given a chance. Olesz will have to battle for a spot in training camp with many young players but the surgery to the bicep of captain Brian Gionta should open a spot for the start of the year. At this point, it will be Rostislav's play that will decide his faith.''
Matt Cooke has signed a 3 year deal worth $1.25M per year.
Both of these guys are big for our penalty-kill and for the overall grit of our team. Adams is a great leader in the locker room and Cooke's ability to get under the opposition's skin. We're excited to have them both back in our lineup.
The Edmonton Oilers made their additions in free agency today, adding forward and goaltending depth to the squad by signing free agent forwards Guillaume Latendresse, Andy McDonald, Boyd Gordon, and Kyle Chipchura to the team.
"These are guys are going to bring veteran leadership, grit, size and faceoff ability to a team that can definitely use it." Oilers GM TribalPhoenix stated in a press release today.
Latendresse has signed a 3 year, 7.5M$ with the team, while Andy McDonald was signed to a 1 year, 2.5M$ contract. Gordon agreed to a 3 year, 3.9M$ per year agreement, while Chipchura signed for 3 years at 1.5M$ per season.
The Oilers didn't stop there, supplementing their goaltending position by adding recently bought out Ilya Bryzgalov to a 2 year, 6M$ contract that will pay him 3M$ each season.
"We feel Ilya wasn't a great fit in Philadelphia, but he will be a great addition in Edmonton. He will platoon with Devan Dubnyk, and we feel that this tandem has the potential to really challenge each other for playing time."
Stalberg's contract with the Sens is: 4 yrs 3.5mil/yr with a NTC
"We are happy to add a player with great size and speed to our team. He will add tremendously to our offense and we feel with more ice time he can break out and be even better than how he was with Toronto and Chicago, he also joins a good company of Swedes on our team, we'd like to welcome Viktor to our team." Said the Ottawa GM
