    Max Comtois: Signs KHL deal
    21m ago

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

    No terms were announced. The 25-year-old forward spent five seasons with the Ducks before playing one game at the NHL level in 2023-24 with Carolina. Comtois played 212 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.

    Hurricanes' Jack Drury: Inks two-year deal
    18h ago

    Drury signed a two-year, $3.45 million contract with the Hurricanes on Wednesday, per Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

    Drury was a restricted free agent after completing his entry-level contract. He had eight goals, 27 points and 33 PIM in 74 regular-season contests with Carolina in 2023-24. Drury is likely to open the upcoming season as a member of the third line.

    Evgeny Kuznetsov: Getting contract terminated
    22h 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.

    Avalanche's Kevin Mandolese: Signs with new team
    2d ago

    Mandolese signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Avalanche on Tuesday.

    Mandolese's rights were acquired from Ottawa on Monday, and it didn't take Colorado long to get the 23-year-old goalie under contract. Mandolese is likely to spend most of 2024-25 with AHL Colorado, though he has three games of NHL experience and could see some time with the big club if Alexandar Georgiev or Justus Annunen are sidelined at any point.

    Islanders' Simon Holmstrom: Signs one-year deal
    2d 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.

    Blues' Torey Krug: Dealing with ankle injury
    2d 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.

    Byfield signed a five-year, $31.25 million extension with the Kings on Monday.

    Byfield was the second-overall pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. After a slow start to his career, he finally broke out during the 2023-24 campaign; Byfield racked up 20 goals and 55 points with a plus-19 rating in 80 regular-season games last year. The 21-year-old center scored 14 of those points with the man advantage. Byfield also added four points, all assists, in five postseason contests. Expect him to take another step forward with his offensive production during the 2024-25 season.

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.

    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.

    The fact that Ruhwedel signed a two-way deal doesn't bode well for him seeing a lot of minutes with New York this season. The 34-year-old blueliner has made a career out of being a seventh defenseman, one that includes a Stanley Cup championship, so he won't necessarily be playing a bunch with AHL Hartford. Regardless, fantasy players probably shouldn't be expecting much out of Ruhwedel even when he does get into the lineup.
