Wayne Simmonds scored two goals in Philadelphia's 4-0 win over the New York Islanders.

It might just be another preseason game, but it's nice to see Simmonds gets off to such a good start in 2016-17. He finished the game with a plus-1 rating, two penalty minutes, three shots on goal and four hits in 15:31 of ice time. If he stays healthy, the Flyers forward should come close to the 30-goal mark this season.

Mika Zibanejad scored a goal and added two assists in his first preseason game with the New York Rangers.

The Rangers defeated the Islanders by a score of 5-2 and Zibanejad's name could be found all over the scoresheet. He scored a power play goal less than five minutes into the game and he picked up a pair of assists on goals by Brandon Pirri and Dylan McIlrath. The Rangers traded an important piece of their team (Derick Brassard) to acquire Zibanejad and they'll hope the young Swede will finally establish himself as a solid point producer at the NHL level.

Derick Brassard scored in Tuesday's 3-2 OT loss to the Buffalo Sabres.

Brassard managed to score in his first preseason game with the Senators. His third period goal gave the Sens a 2-1 lead at the time. Brassard was acquired from the Rangers as part of a trade that saw Mika Zibanejad head to New York. The Sens will rely on him to be one of their top offensive producers this season. Zack Smith and Bobby Ryan registered the assists on Brassard's goal.

Calgary is reportedly already discussing a contract extension with goaltender Brian Elliott.

Elliott hasn't played a game yet for the Flames, but he is expected to serve as the team's starting goalie in 2016-17. Despite posting strong numbers with the Blues in five seasons, he was never able to seize control over the number one job. Elliott is eligible for unrestricted free agency at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.

According to a source, Artemi Panarin is looking for a six-year deal worth more than $6 million per season.

"We're always confident," GM Stan Bowman said about reaching an agreement. "You go into a negotiation expecting to get a deal done. That's the way I've been in the past and that's the way I am now." Hopefully, this situation turns out better for Chicago than when they had to trade Brandon Saad because they couldn't agree to a new deal with him. Panarin scored 30 goals and 77 points in 80 games during his rookie campaign last year. Bowman doesn't have a timetable in place for when a new contract could be completed, but the 24-year-old winger is under contract for the 2016-17 season.

Marian Gaborik will miss eight weeks due to his foot injury.

In other words, Gaborik's not going to just miss the start of the regular season, but a significant portion of it. The Kings were hoping that he'd bounce back from his 22-point 2015-16 campaign and for a time it looked like the World Cup might serve as a good starting point on that journey. Unfortunately this injury has derailed that and while he might still be effective once he's healthy, there's a real chance that he might not be worth owning in standard leagues this season.

Brad Marchand has inked an eight-year, $49 million contract extension with the Boston Bruins.

In other words, Marchand's annual cap hit will increase from $4.5 million to $6.125 million starting with the 2017-18 campaign. That's still a pretty affordable cap hit for a player coming off a 37-goal season though the length of the deal is likely part of what kept that cap hit down as he's already 28 years old and will be 37 before he has a chance to enter the free agent market now. Going forward, we're not confident that he'll surpass the 30-goal mark again, but he should at least come close to doing so while still getting under opponents' skin.

Restricted free agent Tobias Rieder will not report to the Coyotes training camp without a new contract.

The point is currently moot as Rieder is in the World Cup final with Team Europe but it's probably fair to say that he and his agent, Darren Ferris are not at all happy with the Coyotes at this time. "We’ve made them a fair offer at two years at $2.5 million a year, and they’re unwilling to do it," Ferris said. "Tobi brings a lot of intangibles to that team. I know he’s a fan favorite. He loves Arizona, but it’s disappointing that they’re unwilling to compensate this kid fairly. But at the end of the day, we’re not far apart but they’re not willing to do it at all. I would doubt at this point that I could say that anything’s imminent in getting done." Rieder had 14 goals and 37 points last season and is in line for an equal season if he plays the full schedule.

With his overtime marker at just 3:43, Tomas Tatar sends Team Europe past Sweden and into the World Cup final against Canada.

It was Tatar's second tally of the game, in fact. Both were off of self-generated rebounds at the mouth of the crease. Tatar and the rest of Europe will take on Canada in the best-of-three series to take home the gold.

Per the Ottawa Senators, Clarke MacArthur has again been diagnosed with a concussion.

MacArthur missed all but four games due to a concussion in 2015-16, so this is no doubt terrible news for him and the team. Patrick Sieloff nailed MacArthur with a hit during a scrimmage, which instigated a fight between him and Bobby Ryan in response. Clearly this does not bode well for MacArthur, but nothing outside of the diagnosis has been give yet. More to come.

Jaroslav Halak will guard Team Europe's crease against Team Sweden in Sunday's semi-final.

Halak has turned away 95 of 111 combined shots as he played in all three of Europe's round robin games. He blanked USA, allowed two goals to the Czechs, and stopped 42 of 46 from the Canadians in his only loss. Suffice it to say if Europe can defend their zone well, then their Cinderella story has a real shot of continuing.
