    Sabres' Beck Malenstyn: Secures two-year pact
    4h ago

    Malenstyn and the Sabres agreed to terms on a two-year, $2.7 million contract Tuesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Malenstyn was brought in via trade by Buffalo from Washington before the 2024 NHL Draft but needed to agree to new terms as a restricted free agent. Last season, the 26-year-old natural center saw action in 81 games for the Caps in which he generated six goals and 15 assists, all career bests. He figures to slot into a bottom-six role for the Sabres this year and likely has a ceiling in the 25-30-point range.

    Hatakka signed a one-year, two-way contract with New Jersey on Monday.

    Hatakka notched five goals and 20 points in 48 regular-season appearances with AHL Utica in 2023-24. He also contributed two assists, 12 shots on goal, 12 blocked shots and 14 hits in 12 NHL outings with the Devils last campaign. The 23-year-old defender will battle for a depth spot during New Jersey's training camp but may spend most of 2024-25 in the minors.

    Sprong generated 18 goals and 43 points in 76 regular-season outings for Detroit in 2023-24. As a member of the Canucks in a bottom-six role, he should register similar numbers in the upcoming campaign. Sprong also could see playing time on the second power-play unit.

    Max Comtois: Signs KHL deal
    5d ago

    Comtois signed a contract with Dynamo Moscow of the KHL on Thursday.

    No terms were announced. The 25-year-old forward spent his first five seasons with the Ducks before playing one game at the NHL level in 2023-24 with Carolina. Comtois spent most of 2023-24 in the AHL, picking up 19 goals and 25 assists in 65 regular-season appearances with Chicago. Comtois played 211 regular-season NHL games, scoring 38 goals and adding 49 assists. The feisty winger is young enough that he could eventually return to the NHL after his stint overseas.

    Evgeny Kuznetsov: Getting contract terminated
    6d ago

    Kuznetsov was put on unconditional waivers for the purpose of terminating his contract, the Hurricanes announced Wednesday.

    Kuznetsov had one season remaining on his eight-year, $62.4 million contract. When an NHL agreement is mutually terminated rather than bought out, the remaining cap hit and salary are erased from the books, which will save each of Carolina and Washington $3.9 million for the 2024-25 campaign. Kuznetsov struggled in 2023-24, finishing the regular season with eight goals and 24 points across 63 contests. He's likely to join the KHL's SKA St. Petersburg.

    Islanders' Simon Holmstrom: Signs one-year deal
    7d ago

    Holmstrom signed a one-year, $850,000 contract with the Islanders on Tuesday, per PuckPedia.

    Holmstrom and the Islanders were able to work out a deal outside of his qualifying offer, which would have paid him marginally more. That would have been a two-way agreement, but the contract Holmstrom penned instead is a one-way deal, which suggests the team has faith in the winger spending most of the year in the NHL. He produced 25 points over 75 regular-season outings in 2023-24, playing mainly in a middle-six role, though he also shot 20.8 percent, which makes him a candidate for regression.

He also registered one assist, five shots on goal, six blocked shots and five hits in seven NHL appearances with Ottawa during the 2023-24 campaign. Jarventie will probably begin the upcoming season in the minors but could be among the first call-ups by the Oilers if reinforcements are required.

    Blues' Torey Krug: Dealing with ankle injury
    7d ago

    Krug was diagnosed with pre-arthritic changes in his left ankle and will be evaluated in 6-8 weeks.

    That timeline puts Krug's next check-up at just before training camp. If his ankle gets worse, surgery is on the table, which would cost him the entire 2024-25 campaign. As is, it's likely the defenseman misses at least some time early in the season since his offseason ramp-up will be disrupted. If Krug misses the year, it could lead to a full-time role for Pierre-Olivier Joseph on the third pairing, while Scott Perunovich and Justin Faulk would figure to get the most additional power-play time.
