Sergei Gonchar (flu) will miss Sunday's game against the Montreal Canadiens.

He's been banged up with a lower-body injury, and now it appears that he's dealing with some kind of sickness. He's still an integral part of the Ottawa Senators lineup, so this hurts. Then again, as an older player, this little break might have some advantages over the long haul of the season.

Kris Letang (neck) expects to be ready for the 2017-18 season.

Letang has had plenty of time to recover from surgery back in April for a herniated disc in his neck. "It's been pretty good and we're on a path of starting training camp and being fully healthy," he said. Letang was seen recently working on his footwork with former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens, as he prepares for the upcoming season. The 30-year-old isn't a stranger to injuries, but when he is healthy Letang is one of the best offensive rearguards in the league.

Oilers coach Todd McLellan isn't worried that Leon Draisaitl still needs a new contract.

"I'm confident we're going to see Leon in an [Oilers] uniform," McLellan said. "We want him to be there, he wants to be there, and it's just a matter of getting a few things done over the summer." Edmonton GM Peter Chiarelli made signing Draisaitl and Connor McDavid his big off-season priorities and McDavid's extension was completed earlier this month. He is still negotiating with Draisaitl and said he will match any offer sheet.

Andrei Markov will head back to Russia and play in the KHL during the 2017-18 campaign.

Markov announced his decision Thursday after the Canadiens decided not to sign him. He probably would have attracted interest from other NHL teams, but he has passed on those opportunities and should represent Russia in the Olympics.

Andrei Markov will not be back with the Canadiens in 2017-18.

Montreal made the announcement on Thursday morning. Markov had spent his entire 16-year NHL career with the Canadiens, while skating in 990 games. The 38-year-old blueliner has 572 total points, which includes the six goals and 36 points he generated in 62 appearances last year. Markov should be able to find another team on the open market.

Boston has made Ryan Spooner's contract signing official.

It is indeed a one-year deal worth $2.825 million, which was initially reported by Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman this morning. "We are pleased with the process and are happy to have Ryan's contract resolved. His agent, Murray Kuntz, and Ryan were both very professional, and our group was well prepared as they had worked very diligently prior to arriving at a settlement point," said GM Don Sweeney. "We know Ryan has the offensive skills to be an impactful player, especially while on the power play. We expect Ryan to continue to take the necessary steps with his development to be an even more complete, two-way player." Spooner took a step back last season with 39 points in 78 games after he had 49 points over 80 matches in 2015-16. He will have to be better this year because the Bruins have other players in the pipeline looking to move up and take his place.

Will Butcher will reportedly test the open market as an unrestricted free agent, according to BSN Denver.

"We informed the Avalanche of that decision," said Butcher's agent, Brian Bartlett. "We appreciate what Colorado has done, and we're not ruling out the Avalanche as a potential destination. But we just feel there will be other opportunities that should be explored too, and therefore we're going (Aug. 15)." The Avalanche can still negotiate with Butcher until then, but it's unlikely that he'll sign with them. He is coming off an impressive season with the University of Denver, where he captured the Hobey Baker Award and the NCAA championship. Butcher registered 37 points in 43 games last year and he should attract plenty of interest.

Mark Streit has signed a one-year contract with the Montreal Canadiens.

Streit will reportedly earn $700,000. He suited up in 68 games with Philadelphia and Pittsburgh last season. Streit had 21 points in 49 appearances with the Flyers as well as six points in 19 outings with the Penguins. He could be in line to replace Andrei Markov as a veteran power-play option if the latter doesn't re-sign with the Canadiens.

Mika Zibanejad has agreed to a five-year contract with the Rangers worth an average annual value of $5.35 million.

Zibanejad got exactly what he was reportedly seeking from his new deal. He had an arbitration hearing slated for Tuesday, but that obviously is no longer necessary. Zibanejad was limited to 56 games last season and he contributed 37 points. He will be the Rangers' top center in 2017-18 and could reach the 60-point plateau if he can stay healthy.
Jul 25 - 11:29 AM

Robin Lehner has agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth $4 million with the Buffalo Sabres.

Lehner set new career highs in games played (59), wins (23) and shutouts (2) in 2016-17 during his first full season as the starting goalie for the Sabres. He spent most of the previous campaign on the sidelines due to injury. Lehner also stopped the third-most shots in the league (1,758), while posting an impressive .920 save percentage.

Kyle Okposo said he's healthy and ready for the 2017-18 season.

Okposo was admitted to Buffalo General Medical Center on April 2 to be treated for the effects of a concussion. "I've worked with a lot of different people -- concussion experts and people who have dealt with concussions themselves -- and I feel confident in the fact that I can play hockey again," Okposo stated in an open letter to the fans. "In fact, I know I can play again. I know I can play and not worry about hitting my head, which is a major hurdle for someone who's dealt with this. If I didn't feel 100 percent right now, that probably wouldn't be the case." He had a reaction to the medication he was taking and spent some time at the Neuro Surgical ICU to get stabilized. Okposo took part in a summer game in July and he will be on the ice for training camp.

Jaromir Jagr skated with his hometown team Kladno recently, but is still hoping to sign with an NHL team at some point.

"I don't think I am so bad that I couldn't play there," Jagr told Czech hockey writer Zdenek Janda. He didn't fit into Florida's plans anymore and so he is available as an unrestricted free agent. The 45-year-old winger registered 16 goals and 30 assists in 82 games last season.
