The Devils plan to use Nico Hischier as a center right from the start.

The alternative would have been to have Hischier start his career as a winger as a mean to ease him into the NHL a bit more. It's not clear who his linemates will be, but it's entirely possible that Hischier will find himself on one of the Devils' top two lines. He's going into the season as a potential contender for the Calder Trophy, so you'll naturally want to keep an eye on him during training camp.

Nolan Patrick has been kept off the ice for the last two days due to a facial infection.

Patrick hasn't been having any luck as he was already recovering from abdominal surgery. He was dealing with a "sharp, shooting pain" in his lower stomach last season that he had played through. Philadelphia took him with the second overall pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

Kyle Okposo, who missed the end of the 2016-17 campaign, participated in an exhibition game on Wednesday.

Okposo reportedly suffered a concussion and then had a reaction to the medication he was taking, which resulted in him being hospitalized and put in the neurological intensive care unit. It's great to see that Okposo has recovered to the point where he's able to play again. "It was pretty scary when that news came out [he was hospitalized], everyone was pretty concerned and wished him the best," said Islanders Brock Nelson, who was also participating in the game. "But I've seen him a lot this summer and he seems to be doing well, which is good, and it was good to see him back out there [Wednesday], too. Everyone's out there having fun. It was good to see him on the ice again and hopefully this helps him get ready for the fall and we look forward to seeing him out there again."

The Detroit Red Wings and Tomas Tatar weren't able to avoid an arbitration hearing.

Tatar and the Red Wings have consequently had to make their case to an arbitrator, who will name Tatar's salary within the next 48 hours. Tatar's requested salary was $5.3 million and Detroit countered with $4.1 million, but the arbitrator has the power to determine a middle ground as well. He's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent next summer and did suggest that if it came to the point where a hearing was necessary then the 2017-18 campaign would likely be his last season with Detroit. The two sides will be able to begin negotiations on a long-term deal in January though. If he's still not signed to an extension by the trade deadline then it wouldn't be surprising to see Detroit trade him.

The Nashville Predators and Viktor Arvidsson have put in significantly different salary requests.

Arvidsson is requesting a one-year, $4.5 million contract for the 2017-18 campaign while the Predators have countered with a two-year request with a total value of $5.5 million. These salary requests were filed ahead of Arvidsson's upcoming arbitration hearing. There is still time for the two sides to work out a compromise.

Colton Parayko and the St. Louis Blues have agreed to a five-year, $27.5 million contract extension.

Parayko would have had an arbitration hearing on Thursday, so this last minute deal renders that moot. He was coming off his entry-level contract, but this big raise is well deserved. He's established himself as a top-four defenseman in his first two NHL campaigns and has contributed offensively with 13 goals and 68 points in 160 career games. If the 24-year-old continues to develop then this will be a great contract for the Blues. As it is it already looks like a good price for Parayko.
