It sounds like Anton Belov's decision to leave Edmonton was at least partially inspired by a desire to get away from coach Dallas Eakins.

Belov signed with the KHL's SKA St. Petersburg. "There is no one reason that made it an abrupt change," said Belov, per Sovetsky Sports. "It was all building up during the season, especially more so after the Olympics. And the hire of coach (Vyacheslav) Bykov (at SKA) was also an influence. The other point is that I could have re-signed with Edmonton, but I didn't want to stay with that coach." Eakins came under fire for the Oilers' underwhelming performance in his first season as the team's bench boss, but he is still expected to return for the 2014-15 campaign.

Jake Allen has agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $17.4 million.

"I'm so excited to be a Blue for the next five years. This is where I want to be," Allen said. "This is the place that drafted me and made me the goalie I am today. I want to be a Blue forever and I'm looking forward to being able to stay here for the next five years. With the contract out of the way, now I can focus on hockey and worry about winning a championship." Allen will be Blues' number one netminder next season after Brian Elliott was traded at the 2016 NHL Draft.

Kyle Okposo has inked a seven year/$42 million deal with the Buffalo Sabres.

Okposo will go from playing the wing with John Tavares to playing alongside Jack Eichel. He had 22 goals and 64 points in 79 games and will likely do just as well with the Sabres. Draft him accordingly.

Brian Campbell has signed a one-year deal with Chicago.

The Blackhawks were expected to bring back Campbell and now the deal is official. The veteran defender had six goals and 31 points in 82 games last season to go with a plus-31 rating. He will be a great addition to Chicago's top-four defense.

The Boston Bruins have signed David Backes to a one-year contract.

No terms have been announced but Backes will give the Bruins the same kind of play that Milan Lucic gave them a couple of seasons ago. He likely will end up on one of the top two lines and while he has been a diminishing fantasy asset the last couple of years, this could revitalize him and get him back to the 25 goal, 50 point mark. He is worth a late middle round pick in most pools.

Milan Lucic has officially signed with the Edmonton Oilers.

As previously reported, Lucic has agreed to a seven-year contract worth $42 million. He tallied 20 goals and 55 points in 81 games with Los Angeles last year.

Andrew Ladd has signed a seven-year/$38.5 million deal with the New York Islanders.

A big deal for Ladd who was dealt from the Jets to the Blackhawks on trade deadline day. He will take his spot on a line with John Tavares and should be able to hit the 70 point mark and maybe better this season.
Jul 1 - 12:07 PM

Loui Eriksson has agreed to a six-year contract with the Vancouver Canucks.

His new deal reportedly has an AAV of $6 million. Eriksson recorded 30 goals and 63 points in 82 games with Boston last season. He could be a great fit alongside the Sedin twins.

The Chicago Blackhawks will reportedly sign Brian Campbell to a one-year deal.

Nothing can be made official until noon ET at the earliest. Campbell signing with Chicago wouldn't be surprising at this point as we've been hearing reports pointing to that outcome for more than a week now. As has been previously stated though, Campbell will need to agree to a discount to make this work from a cap perspective. His deal with them will reportedly be in the $2 million range, which is great value for Chicago is it's true.
Jul 1 - 11:41 AM

The Buffalo Sabres will reportedly sign Kyle Okposo.

Such an agreement can't be official until noon ET, so we'll have to wait a little longer to find out of this signing will actually happen. It will be a nice boost for the Sabres if it's true, especially given the top-six talent they're already compiling. Okposo had 22 goals and 64 points in 79 games last season.
