The Dallas Stars plan on signing Valeri Nichushkin to a two-year contract, per Stars GM Jim Nill.

Dallas can't do so until July 1 though. Nichushkin was taken by Dallas with the 10th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He recorded 29 points in 79 contests in 2015-16, but spent the last two seasons in the KHL. In 2017-18, he had 16 goals and 27 points in 50 games.

The Buffalo Sabres are reportedly not expected to present Robin Lehner with a qualifying offer.

If that happens then Lehner will become an unrestricted free agent. TSN's Bob McKenzie added that Buffalo is likely to look elsewhere for a goalie to partner with Linus Ullmark. Lehner's qualifying offer would have been $4 million. He struggled last season with a 3.01 GAA and .908 save percentage in 53 games.

The NHL has unveiled that the 2018-19 campaign will run from Oct. 3 through April 6.

There are four games set for the season opener with the defending champion Washington Capitals hosting the Boston Bruins being the centerpiece game of the night. Speaking of the Capitals, their first rematch against Vegas will take place on Oct. 10 in Washington. Other key events include the Thanksgiving game on Nov. 23 with Philadelphia hosting the New York Rangers and the 2018 Winter Classic between Chicago and Boston at Notre Dame Stadium. The All-Star Break is set for Jan. 24-27 and will once again feature a tournament between the four divisions. Feb. 9 will be Hockey Day in Canada, which will consist of all seven Canadian teams playing, and that will be followed by Hockey Day in America on Feb. 17. Finally, there will be an outdoor game between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia at Lincoln Financial Field on Feb. 23.

The salary cap in 2018-19 will be $79.5 million.

That firms up NHL commissioner Gary Bettman's previous estimate of $79.5 million to $80 million. While we obviously got the low end of that range, it does represent a healthy $4.5 million jump from the 2017-18 ceiling. Currently every team is below the projected ceiling with the team closest to it being the Florida Panthers, which sit at $71,155,832 for 2018-19 per CapFriendly.com after the Mike Hoffman trade. There are also eight teams that are currently more than $20 million below the ceiling. There are still plenty of RFAs that need to be signed and other financial considerations that teams will be making, but it still looks like there will be plenty of money for general managers to throw around once the UFA period starts on July 1.

Senators GM Pierre Dorion admitted that he had no choice but to trade forward Mike Hoffman.

Dorion's quote is rather interesting: "We had to trade Mike Hoffman. Our dressing room was broken." He's alluding to the fact that Erik Karlsson's wife, Melinda, filed an order of protection against Hoffman's fiancee, Monika Caryk, for allegedly cyber-bullying her. The fact that Hoffman had to be traded was obvious to everyone, which is why the Sens got a less than stellar return for the 28-year-old Hoffman, who is now a member of the Florida Panthers.

The New York Islanders have officially hired Barry Trotz as their new head coach.

Trotz is replacing Doug Weight, who had been relieved of his duties after roughly a season and a half as the Islanders' bench boss. Trotz brings with him a very impressive resume. He just finished leading the Washington Capitals to a Stanley Cup championship and has a career 762-568-60-134 regular season record. Those 762 victories make him the fifth winningest coach of all-time. He also won the Jack Adams Award in 2016. This is a big win for the Islanders, but it will be far greater if the hiring helps tip the scales in favor of John Tavares re-signing with the team.

Eric Gryba has been placed on unconditional waivers by the Edmonton Oilers.

If Gryba goes unclaimed then the Oilers plan to buy out the final season of his two-year, $1.8 million contract. That would free up $600K in cap space in 2018-19, but cost $300K in 2019-20. He had two assists and 31 penalty minutes in 21 games last season.

The New York Islanders and Barry Trotz are reportedly close to an agreement.

Trotz guided the Washington Capitals to the Stanley Cup. He left the franchise as the automatic two-year extension triggered was below market value and reportedly the negotiations with the Capitals on an alternate extension fell through. Getting Trotz should provide the Islanders with new optimism following their disappointing 2017-18 campaign. It might also help sway John Tavares into staying.

Winning the Ted Lindsay Award took Connor McDavid by surprise.

"I’m actually shocked," McDavid said. "I definitely didn’t think I would win it, just because everything was made about not being in the playoffs. I didn’t think there was much of a chance." It's seems fair to say that it was the Oilers' failure to make the playoffs that kept him from being one of the finalists for the Hart Trophy, which goes to the league's most valuable player and is voted on by the writers' association. However, the Ted Lindsay Award, which goes to the 'most outstanding player', is voted on by the players and it seems for them the fact that the Oilers struggled as a team was less a factor when judging McDavid's individual performance. McDavid finished the season with 41 goals and a league-high 108 points in 82 games.

New Jersey Devils forward Taylor Hall won the Hart Memorial Trophy on Wednesday night.

The Hart Trophy is "given to the player judged to be the most valuable to his team". Hall certainly fit the bill in 2017-18. The 26-year-old finished the year with 39 goals and 93 points in 76 games last season. Hall is one of the huge reasons why the Devils went from being last in the Eastern Conference two years ago to being a Wild Card team last season. This was the first Hart Trophy of his career. Colorado's Nathan MacKinnon and Los Angeles' Anze Kopitar were the other two nominees.

Golden Knights general manager George McPhee was named GM of the year on Wednesday night.

This is hardly surprising considering he built an expansion team that not only won their division but also made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Final. Vegas finished 2017-18 with an incredible 51-24-7 record in their inaugural season. This is the first time McPhee wins the award. He beat out Winnipeg's Kevin Cheveldayoff and Tampa Bay's Steve Yzerman. This was the fourth individual award of the night for the Golden Knights after Gerard Gallant (Jack Adams), William Karlsson (Lady Byng) and Deryk Engelland (Mark Messier Leadership Award) won a trophy of their own on Wednesday.
