Toronto GM Dave Nonis expects James Reimer to be back as the team's number one goalie next season.

"At this point, I'd say he'll be back as No. 1," Nonis told reporters on Thursday to wrap up the year. "I think his mental make-up remains his strength. It's something you could question last year. I think it was clear that a lot of his issues a year ago were based upon his health. When we needed quality goaltending ... James was very good. I don't think anyone could point to goaltending as an issue with our team." The Leafs may continue their search for a quality veteran keeper, but Reimer made plenty of positive steps during the lockout-shortened campaign.

Jimmy Hayes has inked a three-year, $6.9 million contract with the Boston Bruins

Boston acquired Hayes from Florida in exchange for Reilly Smith and Marc Savard's contract. Hayes was a restricted free agent. He had 19 goals and 35 points in 72 contests last season.

Shawn Matthias has inked a one-year, $2.3 million contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Matthias had 18 goals and 27 points in 78 games with Vancouver in 2014-15. He's a versatile forward in the sense that he can play up and middle or the wing, which will come in handy for the Maple Leafs as they might trade more of their veterans for prospects and picks after moving Phil Kessel.

Alexander Semin's agent said his client is willing to accept a one-year contract.

Semin may not have a choice after being bought out by the Carolina Hurricanes last week. The 31-year-old had a very disappointing season in 2014-15, but a team looking for some offensive flare on the wing might be willing to take a run at him. He has supreme offensive ability but his compete level and lack of consistency have been an issue throughout his career. Semin has a 40-goal season and two 30-goal campaigns under his belt, which does count for something. His agent refused to speak about his client's options in the KHL.

The Washington Capitals and Restricted Free-Agent Evgeny Kuznetsov are working on a new two or three-year contract extension.

Kuznetsov just completed his first full season in the NHL in which he scored 11 goals and 37 points in 80 games. The 23-year-old also added five goals and seven points in 14 postseason contests this spring. His offensive talent is undeniable, and he should see his numbers increase in 2015-16. Kuznetsov's agent also added that he doesn't expect the Capitals to file for salary arbitration by Monday's deadline. It looks like a deal will be hammered out fairly soon.

Mikkel Boedker's agent, Jarrett Bousquet, confirmed that his client will file for salary arbitration.

Boedker and the Coyotes have been working on a new contract for about three months, but they have been unable to come to terms just yet. "When two sides can't agree on something, there is a certain date by which you have to have a contract finished before you weigh other options," Bousquet said. "There have been a lot of changes in the Coyotes organization and this gives both sides some freedom to wait a little longer while we figure things out. We can still talk, but at this point we're looking to see if we can get a one-year deal done to avoid letting the system take care of it." The 25-year-old had 14 goals and 28 points in 45 games with Arizona last season.

The Minnesota Wild have officially announced the signing of Devan Dubnyk to a six-year/$26 million contract.

Dubnyk was sensational for the Wild after being traded from the Coyotes on January 14 as he went 27-9-2 with a 1.78 GAA and a .936 save percentage. He went from a backup goalie in Arizona to being a finalist for the Vezina Trophy. "The most exciting thing for me is knowing I get to be part of a really good hockey team for a long time," Dubnyk told the Star Tribune on June 27. "Getting a chance to play with that group of guys last year was the best experience for me. I'm real excited."

Ryan O'Reilly has inked a seven-year, $52.5 million contract with the Buffalo Sabres.

O'Reilly will get the vast majority of his money in the form of signing bonuses. He is a better player than he is fantasy contributor in standard leagues as a lot of his value comes from the fact that he plays a two-way game. If we were to just focus on his offense, then O'Reilly is unlikely to ever significantly surpass his current career-highs of 28 goals and 64 points, which he set in 2013-14. Even factoring in what he brings to the table defensively though, his cap hit is excessive. The Avalanche were justified in trading him rather than concede to his demands.

Brandon Saad has agreed to a six-year, $36 million contract extension with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Chicago dealt Saad to Columbus as it wouldn't have been able to meet the restricted free agent's contract demands. Saad had 23 goals and 52 points in 82 contests in 2014-15, so just by that standard, it would seem Columbus is overpaying. That being said, the expectation is that this is a contract Saad will go into. He's just 22 years old (23 in October) and it's not hard to envision $6 million annually looking like a fair price for the majority of this agreement. This also gives the Blue Jackets two very promising young, skilled forwards between Saad and Ryan Johansen.
Jul 3 - 2:47 PM

Jake Allen has agreed to a two-year contract with the St. Louis Blues.

Allen was a restricted free agent after completing his previous two-year, $1.6 million deal. He had a 2.28 GAA and .913 save percentage in 37 contests in 2014-15.
Jul 3 - 12:47 PM

Connor McDavid has agreed to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Edmonton Oilers.

No surprise there obviously, but now he's officially on the Edmonton Oilers' roster. He'll get the max allowed under the rules of an entry-level contract. That means he'll earn $925,000 annually and has the potential to achieve $2.85 million annually in signing bonuses.
Jul 3 - 12:44 PM

Slava Voynov has accepted a plea deal on his domestic assault charges and will spend 90 days in jail and serve three years probation.

Voynov plead no contest to a misdemeanor count of corporal injury to a spouse. A violation of his probation would increase his sentence to 364 days. It's not clear what will happen after that for Voynov. He might face deportation and the Kings might also attempt to void his contract, as they recently did with Mike Richards. Currently, Voynov is suspended by both the team and the league.
