The Edmonton Oilers selected center Leon Draisaitl with the third overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

Back home they call him "The German Gretzky," and Draisaitl has already made waves as the highest drafted German player in history. The 6"1, 208 pound center combines power and playmaking to torment opponents, as he notched 105 points in 64 games with the Prince Albert Raiders of the WHL. He also captained Germany’s World Juniors squad, garnering six points in as many games with 52 penalty minutes. The 18 year-old is a pass-first player who reads the game very well, he is decent playing in the defensive zone but needs to become a better skater. He hulks over the puck like Joe Thornton, and appears to be ready to move up a level from the WHL and blossom into a top-six forward in the big show. Draisaitl adds a different element to the Oilers, as a power forward down the middle, in a conference that commands big, tough centers. He'll be a nice piece to go with the Oilers' flashy wingers, and provide support for Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

Ilya Kovalchuk might not come back to the NHL after all.

It's reportedly becoming increasingly likely that Kovalchuk will simply choose to stay in the KHL for now. He's been exploring the possibility of returning to North America, which would have had to involve signing with the New Jersey Devils and then being traded to the team of his choice. There's still a chance that he ends up following through with that plan though and plays in the NHL in 2017-18.

The New York Rangers made their re-signing of Brendan Smith official.

The Rangers didn't disclose the terms of the contract, but it's reportedly a four-year, $17.4 million deal. Smith had three goals and nine points in 63 penalty minutes in 51 games with the Detroit Red Wings and New York Rangers last season. The 28-year-old defenseman could have become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Colorado has signed Sven Andrighetto to a two-year deal.

The deal is reportedly worth $2.8 million. Andrighetto produced five goals and 16 points in 19 games for Colorado after he was acquired from Montreal. "We were pleased with what Sven added to our team at the end of last season," said Avalanche GM Joe Sakic. "He sees the ice well and brings speed and scoring to our lineup. We're excited to have him under contract."

Mike Condon has signed a three-year, $7.2 million contract with the Ottawa Senators.

Condon had a 19-14-6 record with a 2.50 goals-against average and a .914 save percentage in 40 games with the Senators last season. He will be Ottawa's backup goalie in 2017-18 and his workload may decrease.

Patrik Berglund underwent successful surgery Tuesday to repair a dislocated left shoulder.

Berglund sustained the injury during his off-season training in Sweden and now he won't be available until December. He scored a career high 23 goals last season and generated 34 points in 82 games.

Connor McDavid's next contract could be around $13.25 million per season over eight years, according to reports.

McDavid's entry-level deal expires next summer, but the Oilers have prioritized getting an extension done this off-season. The 20-year-old Edmonton captain captured the Art Ross Trophy, the Ted Lindsay Award and the Hart Memorial Trophy in his second season in the NHL.

Spencer Foo has chosen to join the Calgary Flames.

Foo's contract will be made official on July 1. The highly sought-after college free agent compiled 26 goals and 62 points in 38 games with Union College last season.

Pittsburgh is in the process of negotiating a long-term contract with defenseman Justin Schultz.

"It's early," said agent Wade Arnott. "But we've had some good, positive discussions." Schultz broke out in 2016-17 with 12 goals, 51 points and a plus-27 rating in 78 games. He is a restricted free agent with arbitration rights, but both sides hope to have a deal done before that happens.

Vegas has traded Marc Methot to the Dallas Stars in exchange for the rights to prospect Dylan Ferguson and a second-round pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft.

Methot was picked up by the Golden Knights in the expansion draft, but it was expected that he would be flipped for future assets. The former Ottawa defender should help bring some stability to a young Stars defense corps.

Joe Thornton's representatives have reportedly heard from 12 teams so far as free agency approaches.

The Sharks remain his top option, but he is listening to other offers. Thornton has played for San Jose for the last 12 seasons, so this is unfamiliar territory for him.

Anton Forsberg has signed a two-year deal with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Forsberg was acquired from Columbus in the Artemi Panarin-Brandon Saad swap. He is projected to be Chicago's backup goaltender in 2017-18.
