  • Bruins' Michael Callahan: Signs one-year deal

    Callahan penned a one-year, two-way contract with Boston on Friday.

    Callahan has yet to make his NHL debut after being selected by the Coyotes in the fifth round of the 2018 NHL Draft. Last year, the 24-year-old defenseman generated four goals and 13 helpers in 70 regular-season contests. While Callahan could make his debut this year, he figures to spend the bulk of the campaign in the minors with AHL Providence.

  • Sean Walker D | CAR

    Wild's Samuel Walker: Signs one-year deal

    Walker agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with Minnesota on Thursday.

    Walker has just 13 games of NHL experience under his belt over the last two seasons, including four games during the 2023-24 campaign in which he recorded zero points, three shots and two hits. While the 25-year-old winger could get the occasional call-up this upcoming season, he will likely spend the bulk of the year in the minors with AHL Iowa.

  • Ty Emberson D | SJ

    Sharks' Ty Emberson: Pens one-year deal

    Emberson (lower body) inked a one-year, $950,000 contract with San Jose on Thursday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Emberson saw action in 30 regular-season games with the Sharks last year in which he notched one goal, nine assists and 94 hits while averaging 18:33 of ice time. The Wisconsin native should be in the mix for a full-time NHL roster spot this year, which sets him up well to offer decent mid-range fantasy value given his offensive upside.

  • Janis Moser D | TB

    Lightning's J.J. Moser: Inks two-year contract

    Moser signed a two-year, $6.75 million contract with the Lightning on Thursday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Moser was recently dealt to Tampa Bay with Conor Geekie, a 2025 second-round pick and a 2024 seventh-round pick (Noah Steen) for Mikhail Sergachev. Moser had five goals, 21 assists, 99 hits and 112 blocked shots in 80 regular-season appearances for the Coyotes in 2023-24. Look for Moser to be a second-pairing blueliner with Tampa Bay next season.

  • Jets' Dylan Coghlan: Re-ups with new club

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

    Coghlan made just one NHL appearance in 2023-24, though he put up 41 points in 61 games with AHL Springfield. The Jets acquired him from the Hurricanes via trade earlier in July. Coghlan's not guaranteed an NHL roster spot this season, though he'll have the chance to compete for one in training camp now that he's under contract.

  • Ryan Suter D | STL

    Blues' Ryan Suter: Links up with St. Louis

    Suter signed a one-year, $775,000 contract with the Blues on Wednesday.

    Suter was bought out by the Stars in June, the second time he's been bought out since 2021. The 39-year-old defenseman has the ability to earn an additional $2.225 million in performance bonuses. Suter remains capable as a third-pairing defenseman, but after posting 17 points in 82 regular-season contests last year, there is virtually no upside in his game for fantasy purposes.

  • Flyers' Jamie Drysdale: Skating after surgery

    Drysdale has resumed skating after undergoing surgery in April, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports Wednesday.

    Kimelman also reported that Drysdale underwent sports hernia surgery -- the defenseman's procedure had previously been undisclosed. The 22-year-old Toronto native is on track to be ready for training camp, though it will be worth checking in on his status once the Flyers report Sept. 22.

  • Blue Jackets' Jake Christiansen: Avoids arbitration

    Christiansen agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way deal with Columbus on Wednesday, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

    Christiansen was headed for an arbitration case but appears to have found some middle ground with the Jackets. Given the two-way nature of his deal, fantasy players should be expecting the blueliner to split his time between the NHL and AHL, at best. With just 44 NHL games under his belt, Christiansen won't offer much in terms of fantasy value any time soon.

  • Adam Boqvist D | FLA

    Panthers' Adam Boqvist: Inks one-year deal

    Boqvist agreed to terms on a one-year contract with Florida on Tuesday.

    Boqvist becomes the second member of the Panthers' defensive depth to join the club after getting bought out this offseason, though Nate Schmidt figures to play a bigger role for the club. While Boqvist could certainly spend some time in the minors, the club is buying low on a 23-year-old, eighth-overall pick that has 209 games of NHL experience. Whether Boqvist makes the Opening Night roster will depend heavily on his training camp and preseason performance, likely needing to edge out Uvis Balinskis or Tobias Bjornfot for a spot.

  • Egor Zamula D | PHI

    Flyers' Egor Zamula: Signs two-year contract

    Zamula signed a two-year, $3.4 million contract with Philadelphia on Sunday.

    Zamula produced five goals, 21 points, 61 shots on net and 79 blocked shots across 66 regular-season outings with the Flyers this past campaign. The 24-year-old defender will probably see action in a bottom-pairing role in 2024-25.
