Tomas Plekanec is on a roll now that he is playing with consistent linemates.

Centering a line featuring Brian Gionta and Rene Bourque, Plekanec has scored six goals and registered 10 points in the Habs' 10 games thus far, including six points in his last five games. "It's definitely a huge help," Plekanec said of playing regularly with Gionta and Bourque. "I feel that every game we've played since the beginning of the season we improved a bit offensively. We started to know about each other, and how we want to play in the offensive and defensive zones. You have an idea about where people will be." It goes without saying that Plekanec should be active going into Saturday's contest against Toronto.

Matt Martin has inked a four-year, $10 million contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Martin might not bring a lot to the table offensively, but when it comes to a willingness to play physically, he's among the top of the league. He had 365 hits in 2015-16, which was the NHL's best by a margin of 61. Don't be surprised if he and Auston Matthews end up starting the season on the third line together so that the promising youngster has someone on the ice tasked with defending him.

Kris Russell has decided to return to Calgary on a two-year deal.

The 29-year-old veteran rugged defender was sent to Dallas last season at the trade deadline for a hefty haul. It appears that the Flames will get their cake and eat it too. Details on the contract to come.

Roberto Luongo (hip) isn't expected to be healthy for the start of the 2016-17 campaign.

It's not clear how much time Luongo will miss, but that makes the signing of James Reimer all the more important. Luongo had been playing through the hip injury during the 2015-16 campaign, but kept quiet about it.

The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy to a three-year/$10.5 million contract extension.

The move could clear the way for Ben Bishop to be dealt as the Lightning think that Vasilevskiy is their goaltender of the future. He was terrific in the playoffs against the Penguins taking the eventual champs to seven games in a tough Eastern Conference final. Look for Vasilevskiy to split the net with Bishop if both are with TBay next season and to play 60 games if Bishop is traded. Draft him fairly high and higher if it's a keeper league.

Dallas has agreed to terms with Dan Hamhuis on a two-year contract.

His new deal has an AAV of $3.75 million. Hamhuis had three goals and 13 points in 58 games last season with Vancouver.
Jul 1 - 2:00 PM

Victor Hedman has signed an eight-year/$63 million contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

It's a bit less than what Steven Stamkos signed for a couple of days ago as Steve Yzerman has locked up his top two players. Hedman is a top-five defenseman in the NHL and should go in the top-five rounds in most drafts as he has the capability to get 55-60 points.
Jul 1 - 1:35 PM

The New York Islanders have signed Jason Chimera to a two-year contract.

Chimera wanted to stay in Washington but when the Capitals failed to come to a deal with the veteran, he moved on to divisional rival, the Islanders. Chimera had 20 goals and 40 points last season so he has some fantasy value as he also can play on the power play. It's a great signing for the Islanders.
Jul 1 - 1:13 PM

Jake Allen has agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $17.4 million.

"I'm so excited to be a Blue for the next five years. This is where I want to be," Allen said. "This is the place that drafted me and made me the goalie I am today. I want to be a Blue forever and I'm looking forward to being able to stay here for the next five years. With the contract out of the way, now I can focus on hockey and worry about winning a championship." Allen will be Blues' number one netminder next season after Brian Elliott was traded at the 2016 NHL Draft.

Minnesota has agreed to terms with Eric Staal on a three-year deal.

The contract has an annual average value of $3.5 million. Staal produced just six points in 20 appearances with the Rangers after he was acquired from Carolina. He had 10 goals and 33 points in 63 matches with the Hurricanes prior to the move.
Jul 1 - 12:31 PM

Troy Brouwer has signed a four-year contract with Calgary.

His new deal has an annual average value of $4.5 million. Brouwer had 18 goals and 39 points in 82 matches with St. Louis last year.
Jul 1 - 12:27 PM

Kyle Okposo has inked a seven year/$42 million deal with the Buffalo Sabres.

Okposo will go from playing the wing with John Tavares to playing alongside Jack Eichel. He had 22 goals and 64 points in 79 games and will likely do just as well with the Sabres. Draft him accordingly.
