  • Ty Emberson D | SJ

    Sharks' Ty Emberson: Ready for camp

    Emberson (lower body) will be full fit when training camp kicks off ahead of the 2024-25 campaign, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports Friday.

    Emberson recently signed a one-year deal with the Sharks, resolving his restricted free-agent status ahead of the season. Last year, the 24-year-old defenseman saw action in 30 NHL contests in which he garnered one goal, nine assists and 31 shots while averaging 18:33 of ice time. Looking ahead to the upcoming season, Emberson should take the next step in his development and be a full-time NHL option for San Jose.

  • 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.

  • Otto Koivula LW | NYI

    Otto Koivula: Heading overseas

    Koivula signed a two-year contract with the Vaxjo Lakers of the SHL on Thursday, Stefen Rosner of NHL.com reports.

    A fourth-round pick in 2016, Koivula ended up playing in 28 games over parts of three seasons with the Islanders. He managed just four assists, and after spending all of 2023-24 with AHL Bridgeport, the 25-year-old will try his luck in Europe. He did not accrue enough service time with the Islanders for them to retain his rights, so he is considered a Group 6 unrestricted free agent should he make his way back to North America in the future.

  • 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.

  • Radim Zohorna LW | PIT

    Radim Zohorna: Inks overseas deal

    Zohorna agreed to terms on a one-year contract with Swiss club HC Lugano on Thursday, Seth Rorabaugh of Tribune-Review Sports reports.

    Zohorna played in 33 regular-season games for the Penguins last year in which he generated four goals, three assists and 38 shots while averaging just 9:46 of ice time. Undrafted coming out of the Czech league, the 28-year-old winger spent four years trying to make it in North America but will now return to Europe to extend his playing career.

  • 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.

  • Tyce Thompson RW | NYI

    Islanders' Tyce Thompson: Inks new deal

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

    Thompson was acquired by the Islanders in November of 2023 in a minor-league trade. The 24-year-old has just 11 games of NHL experience, and none of them came in 2023-24, so it's likely that he'll spend most of the upcoming campaign at AHL Bridgeport.

  • 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.
