The Colorado Avalanche have hired Jared Bednar to be their next head coach.

He replaces Patrick Roy, who re-signed earlier this month. "After profiling the type of coach I wanted for our team and going through an interview process with several good candidates, I believe that Jared Bednar is the best person to lead this team behind the bench," said Avalanche Executive Vice President/General Manager Joe Sakic. "Jared’s track record of success as a head coach in the American Hockey League speaks for itself and he is considered to be one of the top up-and-coming coaches in our business." Bednar won the Calder Cup with the Lake Erie Monsters (Columbus' AHL affiliate) in 2016. The 44-year-old has 14 years of professional coaching experience in the ECHL and AHL.

Sidney Crosby will wear the "C" for Team Canada at the World Cup of Hockey.

Crosby will be the captain, while Chicago's Jonathan Toews and Montreal's Shea Weber will be assistant captains. These three players had the same leadership responsibilities during Team Canada's gold medal run at the 2014 Olympic Games. "Sid, Toews and Web are great men who have had unbelievable on-ice success," said Team Canada head coach Mike Babcock. "We look forward to them stepping up and leading our group as we work to achieve our ultimate goal at the World Cup."

The Florida Panthers have traded Dave Bolland and Lawson Crouse to the Arizona Coyotes for a conditional 2nd round pick in 2018 and a third round pick in 2017.

This was an unexpected blockbuster deal. Bolland hasn't lived up to the massive contract he signed in the summer of 2014. The 30-year-old played in just 25 games in 2015-16, as he dealt with a lingering lower-body injury. Bolland has three years remaining on his contract at a cap hit of $5.5 million. To sweeten the deal, Florida had to include top prospect Lawson Crouse. The 19-year-old was the 11th overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. The Panthers have essentially sacrificed a good prospect for some salary cap flexibility.

The Dallas Stars and Jiri Hudler have agreed to terms on a one-year, $2 million contract.

The 32-year-old had a disappointing 2015-16 season with Calgary and Florida, but he's just one season removed from a 76-point season. This is a nice low-risk signing for Dallas, as Hudler gives them another top-nine forward. Hudler's fantasy stock could rise significantly if he gets an opportunity to play with Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin or Jason Spezza.

The Colorado Avalanche will likely name a new head coach this week.

The Avalanche are looking for a new bench boss because Patrick Roy quit earlier this month. Some of the reported candidates are Lake Erie head coach Jared Bednar, Utica head coach Travis Green, Chicago assistant Kevin Dineen, Washington assistant Lane Lambers, Rangers associate coach Scott Arniel and San Jose assistant Bob Boughner. A decision could come as soon as Wednesday, according to beat writer Mike Chambers.

The Ottawa Senators have re-signed Cody Ceci to a two-year, $5.6 million contract.

The deal comes with an annual average value of $2.8 million. Ceci will make $2.25 million in the first year and $3.35 million in the second year. The 22-year-old scored 10 goals and 26 points in 75 games last season. After the NHL season, Ceci joined Team Canada at the World Hockey Championship where he scored a goal, six points and a plus-8 rating in 10 games.

The Detroit Red Wings will move Dylan Larkin to center this season.

Larkin has been a centerman throughout his career, but the Wings wanted to ease the 19-year-old into the NHL by moving him to the wing in his first season. But that's all about to change. "That's our plan going into camp," said Red Wings GM Ken Holland. "He's obviously been a center his entire life. We drafted him as a center, but when you have guys like Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk down the middle, guys who are so good 200 feet, it's tougher. Dylan played with Zetterberg last season and Zetterberg took a lot of the responsibility off of Dylan to free him up to play the game. Long-term, the plan is that Dylan is going to be a center for us." The departure of Pavel Datsyuk almost forced Detroit to make this move. Larkin had 23 goals and 45 points in 80 games during his rookie season. He should improve those numbers in year two.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have named Mark Hunter as their assistant General Manager.

The Maple Leafs now have two assistant GMs in Hunter and Kyle Dubas. Hunter had been serving as Toronto's director of player personnel. "Mark's new title is essentially a formality as these are duties he’s already been performing," said Maple Leafs General Manager Lou Lamoriello. "Brendan and I have been discussing this change of title since last season – as it’s a more appropriate recognition of Mark's role with the organization since joining the Maple Leafs. There are no changes to Mark or Kyle’s duties, or to that of Brandon Pridham, Assistant to the General Manager." Hunter will oversee the pro scouting, amateur scouting and player evaluation departments.

Mikko Koivu will serve as captain for Team Finland at the World Cup of Hockey.

The 33-year-old has represented Finland at a number of international competitions. He scored four goals and 10 points in 10 games at last spring's World Championship. Koivu also played for Finland at the 2006 and 2010 Winter Olympics. The veteran center has scored 556 points in 763 career NHL games.

The New York Rangers signed Jimmy Vesey to a two-year, entry-level contract.

He will earn a base salary of $925,000 with $1.925 million in possible bonuses. Vesey was originally drafted by the Predators before his rights were traded to the Buffalo Sabres this off-season. The 23-year-old hit the free agent market earlier this week. He was the most sought after college free agent of the off-season. The Rangers reportedly beat out The Blackhawks, Penguins, Devils, Islanders, Maple Leafs, Sabres and Bruins for Vesey's services. Vesey scored 24 goals and 46 points in 33 games with Harvard University last season. There's a very good chance he'll be with the Rangers once the regular season starts.

The Calgary Flames have re-signed Sean Monahan to a seven-year contract extension.

The deal is reportedly worth $44.625 million ($6.375 million AAV). Monahan also gets a Partial No Trade Clause in the final three years of the contract. It took some time to get done, but the Flames have finally locked up their young star long-term. The 21-year-old has scored at least 22 goals in each of his first three NHL seasons. He scored a career-high 63 points in 2015-16. As impressive as Monahan's been so far, there's still a good chance that he'll continue improving his overall numbers. The Flames will now shift their focus to signing RFA Johnny Gaudreau.
