Jaroslav Halak is expected to miss the St. Louis Blues' next two games with a groin strain, which placed him on the injured reserve.

It's believed that Halak got injured when Henrik Zetterberg beat him on a breakaway goal during Friday's game against the Detroit Red Wings. The Blues reportedly expect Halak back on Saturday.

Cody Glass has been taken with the sixth overall pick by the Vegas Golden Knights.

Glass makes history as the first player ever taken by the Vegas Golden Knights. He's coming off a fantastic year with the WHL’s Portland Winterhawks. After scoring 27 points in 65 games last season, the 18-year-old put up 32 goals and 94 points in 69 contests this year. He added nine points in 11 playoff games with the ‘Hawks and three points in three games with Canada at the 2017 under-18 World Hockey Championship. The 6-foot-2, 180 pounder is an incredible playmaker with great hands, terrific vision and sound hockey IQ. He’s likely a year or two away from being a full-time NHLer, but when he arrives, there’s a good chance he’ll be an impact player for the young franchise.

The Dallas Stars have selected Miro Heiskanen with the third pick in the 2017 Draft.

The Stars need a number one defenseman and Heiskanen should fit the bill in a few years. Heiskanen excels at a lot of the things teams want from their top defenseman in today’s NHL. The 17-year-old is a very good skater, he’s fully capable of carrying the puck up the ice and he’s also smart enough to be an effective player in his own end. Playing in his first professional season in Finland, Heiskanen scored five goals and five assists, while averaging almost 19 minutes of ice time in 37 games, which is pretty impressive for a teenage blue liner. He was also incredible for Finland during their silver medal run at the 2017 U18 World Hockey Championship, as he recorded two goals and 10 assists in seven games. The Stars just got themselves a good one.

The Philadelphia Flyers have selected Nolan Patrick with the second overall pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

He fell to the Flyers at second overall because the Devils went with Nico Hischier first overall. Patrick was a consensus top two pick leading up to the draft and it’s easy to see why. The WHL star is a 6-foot-2, 198 pound center with high-end offensive ability. He’s averaged more than a point-per-game in in each of his three seasons with the Brandon Wheat Kings. The 18-year-old put up an outstanding 102 points in 72 games during the 2015-16 season (he was 17 at the time). The knock on Patrick coming into the draft, is that he missed so much time last year. He sat out 35 games because of an upper-body injury during Brandon’s regular season and all four games of the playoffs because of a lower-body ailment. In 33 games with Brandon, he scored 20 goals and 46 points. Even though he’s dealt with his fair share of injuries, his size, skill and vision make him an incredible young talent. Patrick has the potential to develop into a number one center in the near future.

The New Jersey Devils have selected Nico Hischier with the first overall pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

Going into the season, Hischier being taken over Nolan Patrick would have been a huge shock. There was a little buzz surrounding Hischier coming into the 2016-17 junior season, but he wasn’t mentioned in the same breath as Patrick until he exploded onto the scene at the 2017 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship, where he was dynamic for Switzerland. The 18-year-old posted seven points in five games on a mediocre Swiss team. When he was growing up, Hischier’s favorite player was former Red Wings superstar Pavel Datsyuk, and you can certainly see the influence the Russian has had on the youngster. Hischier’s skill level, puck handling ability and vision are all great. In his first season in North America, he put up 38 goals and 86 points in 57 games with the QMJHL’s Halifax Mooseheads. He has the potential to develop into a top point producer at the next level, helping the Devils' ailing offense and potentially eventually playing with Taylor Hall.

The Washington Capitals have signed T.J. Oshie to an eight-year, $46 million contract extension.

That works out to a $5.75 million annual cap hit, which is on the low end of what we thought he would get, but presumably the Capitals got him to agree to a lower AAV in exchange for a longer contract. In that regard this deal might hurt Washington in the long-term as Oshie will turn 31 in December. For now though his continued presence will be big for the Capitals as he's been a key member of the squad. He's breached the 50-point mark in each of his last four seasons and had 33 goals and 56 points in 68 contests in 2016-17.

The Edmonton Oilers and Kris Russell have agreed to a four-year, $16 million contract extension.

That follows a report Thursday night that Russell and the Oilers were close to inking a trade that was for exactly that length and financial term. The report also suggested that he'd get a full no-movement clause, so we'll see if that part proves to be accurate as well. Russell's deal is a bit of a controversial one as he looks pretty bad from a Corsi/Fenwick perspective and hasn't brought much to the table offensively over the last two seasons. He does block a lot of shots though and averaged 21:13 minutes per game with Edmonton in 2016-17.

The Los Angeles Kings have bought out Matt Greene.

That was expected after he was placed on unconditional waivers Thursday. The Kings will have a $833,333 cap hit against them for each of the next two seasons, but Greene would have come with a $2.5 million cap hit in 2017-18 had he stayed. He's only played in 29 games over the last two seasons due in large part to injuries. "Matt has made incredible contributions to our hockey club and we are very grateful for everything he has done since joining our organization including his outstanding leadership," said Kings president Luc Robitaille. "Upon his arrival to Los Angeles he played a significant role in helping change the culture of the Kings and his contributions to our two Stanley Cups in particular is immeasurable."

The Arizona Coyotes have acquired Antti Raanta from the New York Rangers.

This is part of the larger Derek Stepan deal. This part of the move makes a lot of sense for both teams. The Rangers likely couldn't have kept Raanta beyond next season because when his contract expires and he seeks a raise over his current $1 million salary, it would have probably been too rich for the Rangers given that Henrik Lundqvist already comes with a hefty salary. However, the Coyotes were in the market for a starting goaltender and Raanta has earned an opportunity to ascend to that role. Raanta had a 2.26 GAA and .922 save percentage in 30 contests in 2016-17.

The Arizona Coyotes have acquired Derek Stepan and Antti Raanta from the New York Rangers in exchange for the seventh overall pick in the 2017 draft and Anthony DeAngelo.

Interesting. This move might suggest that the Rangers are shifting their focus towards rebuilding while it looks like Arizona is making moves to try to end its five-year absence from the playoffs. Stepan is still just 27 years old though, so while the Coyotes are giving up a high pick for him and Raanta, they're at least getting a player that could be a big contributor for years to come. Stepan had 17 goals and 55 points in 81 contests in 2016-17.

The Chicago Blackhawks have reacquired Brandon Saad along with Anton Forsberg and a 2018 fifth-round pick in exchange for Artemi Panarin, Tyler Motte, and a 2017 sixth-round pick.

Panarin and Saad both come with a $6 million annual cap hit, so this isn't about saving money in the short-term for Chicago, but Saad is signed through 2020-21 while Panarin can become an unrestricted free agent following the 2018-19 campaign, so Chicago is gaining some cost certainty here. Saad had 24 goals and 53 points in 82 games last season, making it the third straight campaign where he recorded between 52 and 53 points. He's a known quantity for Chicago as he played with the Blackhawks until 2015 when they dealt him to Columbus in the first place.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have acquired Artemi Panarin, Tyler Motte, and a 2017 sixth-round pick in exchange for Brandon Saad, Anton Forsberg, and a 2018 fifth-round selection.

Panarin, 25, made the transition from the KHL to NHL in 2015-16 and was an immediate success. In two seasons with Chicago he scored a combined 61 goals and 151 points in 162 contests. He did play heavily with Patrick Kane so it will be interesting to see if separating the two now will hurt Panarin's production, but the Blue Jackets are getting a high-end offensive threat regardless.
