  • Liam Foudy C | NSH

    Islanders' Liam Foudy: Finds work with Isles

    Foudy signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Islanders on Wednesday, per PuckPedia.

    Foudy is a veteran of 102 NHL games over the last five seasons, but he has just seven goals and 15 assists to his name. He split time between the Blue Jackets and Predators last season. Foudy offers modest physicality that will likely help his cause, but he's not a lock to make the Islanders' Opening Night roster.

  • Hockey Club's Barrett Hayton: Inks two-year extension

    Hayton (lower body) signed a two-year, $5.3 million deal with Utah on Monday.

    Hayton was banged up last year and multiple injuries caused him to miss nearly 50 games. He was held to just three goals and 10 points in 33 appearances. He averaged 17:01 of ice time as a top-six staple but never quite found his groove offensively. The 24-year-old forward scored a career-high 43 points during the 2022-23 campaign and should be in line for at least similar production if he can stay on the ice this upcoming season.

  • Oilers' Raphael Lavoie: Grabs two-way deal

    Lavoie inked a one-year, two-way contract with Edmonton on Monday.

    Lavoie played in seven NHL regular-season games this past year in which he registered zero points, four shots on goal and 13 hits while averaging 7:17 of ice time. Even with a new deal in hand, the 23-year-old center is unlikely to start the season on the NHL roster, instead playing the bulk of his games with AHL Bakersfield in the minors.

  • Hockey Club's Curtis Douglas: Inks two-year contract

    Douglas signed a two-year, two-way contract with Utah on Sunday.

    Douglas chipped in five goals, 21 points and 148 PIM in 57 regular-season contests for AHL Tucson in 2023-24. He will likely begin the upcoming campaign in the minors. The 24-year-old forward doesn't have any NHL experience yet.

  • Jets' David Gustafsson: Inks two-year deal

    Gustafsson signed a two-year, $1.67 million contract with the Jets on Saturday.

    Gustafsson had three goals and seven points in 39 regular-season appearances in 2023-24 for the Jets. The Swedish native also picked up three helpers in six AHL regular-season games with Manitoba. Gustafsson will probably occupy a bottom-six spot with Winnipeg in the upcoming campaign.

  • Oilers' Matthew Savoie: Changes teams

    Savoie was acquired by the Oilers from the Sabres on Friday in exchange for Ryan McLeod and Tyler Tullio, per Jason Gregor of Sports 1440 Edmonton.

    Savoie had 19 goals and 47 points across 23 regular-season contests with WHL Moose Jaw in 2023-24 and then provided another 10 goals and 24 points across 19 playoff outings. He also got his first taste of NHL action Nov. 10 with Buffalo, though he logged just 3:55 of ice time in that appearance and didn't record a shot or point. The 20-year-old was selected by the Sabres with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2022 NHL Draft. While he has plenty of potential, Savoie shouldn't be counted on to make an impact with Edmonton in 2024-25.

  • Ryan McLeod C | BUF

    Sabres' Ryan McLeod: Involved in trade

    McLeod was acquired by the Sabres from the Oilers along with Tyler Tullio on Friday in exchange for Matthew Savoie, according to Jason Gregor of Sports 1440 Edmonton.

    Edmonton was presumably looking to clear McLeod's $2.1 million cap hit for the 2024-25 campaign despite the 24-year-old holding his own last campaign. McLeod had 12 goals and 30 points across 81 regular-season contests, but he was likely to be relegated to the fourth line for 2024-25 after Edmonton re-signed Adam Henrique and brought in free agents Viktor Arvidsson and Jeff Skinner. McLeod might earn a role on Buffalo's third unit.

  • Alex Limoges C | WAS

    Capitals' Alex Limoges: Signs one-year deal

    Limoges inked a one-year, two-way contract with the Capitals on Thursday.

    Limoges will earn the NHL minimum $775,000 when on the Capitals roster, and will get $300,000 in the minors. Limoges has yet to play in the NHL. The 26-year-old had 24 goals and 51 points in 62 regular-season contests with AHL Hershey in 2023-24 and chipped in with four goals and nine helpers in 20 playoff games, helping the Bears win the Calder Cup championship. He will get an opportunity to crack the Washington lineup during training camp, but he will likely start the season in Hershey, barring a multitude of injuries.

  • Sharks' Ty Dellandrea: Inks two-year extension

    Dellandrea signed a two-year, $2.6 million contract with the Sharks on Thursday, per PuckPedia.

    Dellandrea was dealt to San Jose from Dallas on June 19 for a 2025 fourth-round pick. The 13th pick in the 2018 Draft by the Stars, Dellandrea played in only 42 regular-season games in 2023-24, due to injuries and healthy scratches. He managed two goals and nine points, as well as a goal in six postseason games. Dellandrea will get a new start with the Sharks and will likely find himself battling for a role as a bottom-six forward in training camp.

  • Hurricanes' Jack Roslovic: Signs with Hurricanes

    Roslovic inked a one-year, $2.8 million contract with the Hurricanes on Thursday.

    Roslovic split the 2023-24 campaign between Columbus and the Rangers, picking up 31 points in 59 regular-season games. Roslovic had a pair of goals and six assists in 16 playoff games for the Rangers. He should play in a middle-six role for Carolina in 2024-25.
