Dustin Byfuglien is considered day-to-day after his Sunday skate lasted just 10 minutes.

He slid into the boards legs-first in Friday's exhibition loss to Boston. Coach Claude Noel said Byfuglien was "fine" afterward and he expects him to be ready for Tuesday's regular season opener. "Precautionary measures," he said to explain Byfuglien's brief skate. "We're being intelligent on that part. We expect him to be a player, yes." Monday or Tuesday's practice session could ultimately determine his status.

Boston has made Ryan Spooner's contract signing official.

It is indeed a one-year deal worth $2.825 million, which was initially reported by Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman this morning. "We are pleased with the process and are happy to have Ryan's contract resolved. His agent, Murray Kuntz, and Ryan were both very professional, and our group was well prepared as they had worked very diligently prior to arriving at a settlement point," said GM Don Sweeney. "We know Ryan has the offensive skills to be an impactful player, especially while on the power play. We expect Ryan to continue to take the necessary steps with his development to be an even more complete, two-way player." Spooner took a step back last season with 39 points in 78 games after he had 49 points over 80 matches in 2015-16. He will have to be better this year because the Bruins have other players in the pipeline looking to move up and take his place.

Will Butcher will reportedly test the open market as an unrestricted free agent, according to BSN Denver.

"We informed the Avalanche of that decision," said Butcher's agent, Brian Bartlett. "We appreciate what Colorado has done, and we're not ruling out the Avalanche as a potential destination. But we just feel there will be other opportunities that should be explored too, and therefore we're going (Aug. 15)." The Avalanche can still negotiate with Butcher until then, but it's unlikely that he'll sign with them. He is coming off an impressive season with the University of Denver, where he captured the Hobey Baker Award and the NCAA championship. Butcher registered 37 points in 43 games last year and he should attract plenty of interest.

Mark Streit has signed a one-year contract with the Montreal Canadiens.

Streit will reportedly earn $700,000. He suited up in 68 games with Philadelphia and Pittsburgh last season. Streit had 21 points in 49 appearances with the Flyers as well as six points in 19 outings with the Penguins. He could be in line to replace Andrei Markov as a veteran power-play option if the latter doesn't re-sign with the Canadiens.

Mika Zibanejad has agreed to a five-year contract with the Rangers worth an average annual value of $5.35 million.

Zibanejad got exactly what he was reportedly seeking from his new deal. He had an arbitration hearing slated for Tuesday, but that obviously is no longer necessary. Zibanejad was limited to 56 games last season and he contributed 37 points. He will be the Rangers' top center in 2017-18 and could reach the 60-point plateau if he can stay healthy.

Robin Lehner has agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth $4 million with the Buffalo Sabres.

Lehner set new career highs in games played (59), wins (23) and shutouts (2) in 2016-17 during his first full season as the starting goalie for the Sabres. He spent most of the previous campaign on the sidelines due to injury. Lehner also stopped the third-most shots in the league (1,758), while posting an impressive .920 save percentage.

Kyle Okposo said he's healthy and ready for the 2017-18 season.

Okposo was admitted to Buffalo General Medical Center on April 2 to be treated for the effects of a concussion. "I've worked with a lot of different people -- concussion experts and people who have dealt with concussions themselves -- and I feel confident in the fact that I can play hockey again," Okposo stated in an open letter to the fans. "In fact, I know I can play again. I know I can play and not worry about hitting my head, which is a major hurdle for someone who's dealt with this. If I didn't feel 100 percent right now, that probably wouldn't be the case." He had a reaction to the medication he was taking and spent some time at the Neuro Surgical ICU to get stabilized. Okposo took part in a summer game in July and he will be on the ice for training camp.

Jaromir Jagr skated with his hometown team Kladno recently, but is still hoping to sign with an NHL team at some point.

"I don't think I am so bad that I couldn't play there," Jagr told Czech hockey writer Zdenek Janda. He didn't fit into Florida's plans anymore and so he is available as an unrestricted free agent. The 45-year-old winger registered 16 goals and 30 assists in 82 games last season.

Brian Dumoulin has signed a six-year contract with Pittsburgh.

Dumoulin's new deal, which was signed before his scheduled arbitration hearing, runs through the 2022-23 season and carries an average annual value of $4.1 million. He has dressed in all 49 playoff games during Pittsburgh's back-to-back Stanley Cup championships. Dumoulin posted 15 points in 70 games during the regular season in 2016-17. He also had 113 hits and 99 blocks.

Johnny Oduya has inked a one-year, $1 million contract with the Ottawa Senators.

The Senators announced that the deal has games played, time-on-ice and playoff bonuses that could earn Oduya another $1,250,000. Oduya skated in 52 games with Dallas and Chicago last season, while chipping in two goals and nine points. He will turn 36 before the start of the 2017-18 campaign and doesn't bring much to the table in terms of fantasy value. Still, Oduya can block shots and log around 20 minutes per game if called upon.

Connor Hellebuyck has avoided going to arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract with the Winnipeg Jets.

Hellebuyck's hearing was scheduled for August 1, but the two sides were expected to work something out beforehand. Hellebuyck's new deal has an annual average value of $2.25 million. He posted a 26-19-4 record with a 2.89 goals-against average and a .907 save percentage last year. Winnipeg signed Steve Mason in the off-season to help mentor Hellebuyck in 2017-18. Mason could see the bulk of the playing time, but Hellebuyck will try to push him for starts.

Viktor Arvidsson has signed a seven-year, $29.75 million contract extension with the Nashville Predators.

That works out to be a $4.25 million annual cap hit. Arvidsson was a restricted free agent that had filed for arbitration. He had 31 goals and 61 points in 80 contests last season, so based on that performance this new deal could be an incredible steal. However, Arvidsson doesn't have a history to back those numbers up, so there is a danger that he could regress dramatically. In other words, the Predators are taking a risk here, but it's not a bad one to take.
