Adam McQuaid is expecting to get medical clearance to play Saturday against the Rangers.

The rough and tumble Bruins' defenseman underwent surgery in October to remove a blood clot in his shoulder but seems fine now. If you need some PIMs from a blueliner, you could do worse than McQuaid.

Brian Dumoulin has signed a six-year contract with Pittsburgh.

Dumoulin's new deal, which was signed before his scheduled arbitration hearing, runs through the 2022-23 season and carries an average annual value of $4.1 million. He has dressed in all 49 playoff games during Pittsburgh's back-to-back Stanley Cup championships. Dumoulin posted 15 points in 70 games during the regular season in 2016-17. He also had 113 hits and 99 blocks.

Johnny Oduya has inked a one-year, $1 million contract with the Ottawa Senators.

The Senators announced that the deal has games played, time-on-ice and playoff bonuses that could earn Oduya another $1,250,000. Oduya skated in 52 games with Dallas and Chicago last season, while chipping in two goals and nine points. He will turn 36 before the start of the 2017-18 campaign and doesn't bring much to the table in terms of fantasy value. Still, Oduya can block shots and log around 20 minutes per game if called upon.

Connor Hellebuyck has avoided going to arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract with the Winnipeg Jets.

Hellebuyck's hearing was scheduled for August 1, but the two sides were expected to work something out beforehand. Hellebuyck's new deal has an annual average value of $2.25 million. He posted a 26-19-4 record with a 2.89 goals-against average and a .907 save percentage last year. Winnipeg signed Steve Mason in the off-season to help mentor Hellebuyck in 2017-18. Mason could see the bulk of the playing time, but Hellebuyck will try to push him for starts.

Viktor Arvidsson has signed a seven-year, $29.75 million contract extension with the Nashville Predators.

That works out to be a $4.25 million annual cap hit. Arvidsson was a restricted free agent that had filed for arbitration. He had 31 goals and 61 points in 80 contests last season, so based on that performance this new deal could be an incredible steal. However, Arvidsson doesn't have a history to back those numbers up, so there is a danger that he could regress dramatically. In other words, the Predators are taking a risk here, but it's not a bad one to take.

Jordan Martinook has signed a two-year, $3.6 million contract with the Arizona Coyotes.

Martinook's agent said that the two sides were "close" to a contract extension on Friday, so this agreement doesn't come as a surprise. This makes the arbitration hearing scheduled for Wednesday moot. He had 11 goals and 25 points in 77 games last season.
Jul 22 - 11:09 AM

Tomas Tatar has signed a four-year, $21.2 million contract extension with the Detroit Red Wings.

The two sides really waited until the last minute. Tatar and the Red Wings already went through their arbitration hearing, but because the arbitrator hadn't ruled yet, there was still a small window left for them to reach a compromise on their own. Tatar will come with a $5.3 million cap hit as a result of this deal. Based on previous reports, Detroit had offered Tatar a five-year, $25 million deal, but he rejected it as he was seeking $6 million to $7 million annually for six or seven years. It seems that the compromise was ultimately to agree to something with a shorter term. He had 25 goals and 46 points in 82 contests last season.

Ryan Dzingel has signed a two-year, $3.6 million contract with the Ottawa Senators.

Dzingel and Ottawa have managed to avoid an arbitration hearing. They had already reached the point where the two sides had to file salary requests with Dzingel asking for $1.95 million for the 2017-18 campaign and Ottawa countering at $1 million. He had 14 goals and 32 points in 81 contests last season.

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.

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.

Owen Tippett has signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Florida Panthers.

Tippett was taken with the 10th overall pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. Among his greatest assets are his speed and shot, so naturally he has a lot of offensive upside. He'll be worth keeping an eye on during training camp, although he should be regarded as a bit of a long shot to make the team. "I'm thrilled to sign Owen to his first NHL contract," said Panthers GM Dale Tallon. "Owen is a natural goal scorer with a bright future and he already possesses NHL-ready size and speed. We're looking forward to watching him compete for a spot on our NHL roster at training camp this fall."

The Dallas Stars will get Valeri Nichushkin back in 2018-19.

Nichushkin has a season left on his contract with CSKA Moscow, but his intention is to return to North America once it's over. "I talked to Val, he had a commitment and he knew that going in," Stars GM Jim Nill said. "He talked to the team, and he knew he had to go back one more year. I had a good talk with him and told him you're going to playing in all the national team tournaments and get a chance to make the Olympics. Take advantage of it. It's a great year of development for him. He's excited about that. And then he comes back the following year." Nichushkin had 11 goals and 24 points in 36 KHL contests last season. He's got a lot of upside so he'll be worth keeping a close eye on once he's back in the NHL.
