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.

Arizona has signed Louis Domingue to a two-year contract.

He earned the Coyotes' starting job when Mike Smith was injured last season. Domingue posted a 15-18-5 record with a 2.75 goals-against average and a .912 save percentage in 39 games. He is slated to be backup netminder for Arizona next year.

Justin Schultz did not get a qualifying offer from Pittsburgh.

He can test unrestricted free agency now, but still could sign with the Penguins for less than the $3.9 million he earned last year. Schultz skated in 18 regular-season games and 15 playoff matches with Pittsburgh in 2015-16 after he was acquired from Edmonton.

Filip Forsberg has agreed to a six-year, $36 million contract with Nashville.

"Filip is among the most skilled, dynamic talents we've ever had in the organization and is an integral part of our success for the next six years and beyond," GM David Poile said in a statement. "While we have already seen his creativity, hockey sense and puck skills, he has yet to reach the peak of his abilities. We have full confidence that he will continue to blossom into one of the top players in the world." Forsberg is a big part of Nashville's offense. The 21-year-old led the Predators in scoring during the 2015-16 season with 33 goals and 64 points in 82 games. He also generated 23 points on the power play and he amassed 247 shots on goal.

Dallas GM Jim Nill intends to sign Jamie Benn to an extension after July 1.

"Jamie's not going anywhere," he said. "We'll get something done." Benn has one more season left on a five-year, $26.25 million deal and he will get a significant pay bump. The Stars captain has topped 85 points in each of his last two seasons and he tallied 41 goals in 2015-16.

Marc-Andre Fleury is expected to start the 2016-17 season with Pittsburgh, according to Sportsnet's John Shannon.

He received the news from Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford. Fleury's name has come up in plenty of trade rumors, but it doesn't look like anything is imminent on that front.

Expect a lot of interest in unrestricted free agent Kyle Okposo.

The veteran can listen to offers from NHL teams on Saturday and we know of at least five squads that are allegedly rather keen on signing the winger to a new deal. Detroit, St. Louis, Winnipeg, L.A. and Minnesota are said to be in on Okposo. Stay tuned.

The Florida Panthers have traded Dmitry Kulikov to the Buffalo Sabres for Mark Pysyk.

The Sabres also acquired a second-round pick (No. 33) in the deal, while the Panthers received picks No. 38 and No. 89. Kulikov became an extra piece when the Panthers inked Keith Yandle to a contract. Kulikov becomes a top-four defenseman for the Sabres and should take his offensive game to the next level in Buffalo. Look for a 30 point campaign from the defenseman.

Detroit has traded Pavel Datsyuk's contract to Arizona.

The Wings sent Datsyuk, who will play in the KHL in 2016-17, and the No. 16 pick in the draft to the Coyotes for Joe Vitale, the 20th overall selection and a second round pick (No. 53). Arizona used the 16th overall pick to take Jakob Chychrun.
Jun 24 - 9:19 PM

Brian Elliott has been traded to the Calgary Flames in exchange for the 35th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Draft.

If the Flames re-sign Elliott then the Blues will also get a 2018 third-round selection. Elliott was superb during the 2015-16 campaign and the Flames were desperate to add a netminder. He posted a 23-8-6 record with a 2.07 goals-against average and a .930 save percentage. Elliott had to share time with Jake Allen in St. Louis, but he'll be the top option with Calgary.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have taken Pierre-Luc Dubois with the third overall pick.

There was plenty of speculation that Columbus could trade this pick and that they weren't enamored with Jesse Puljujarvi, but going with Dubois is still a bit surprising based on the rankings. However, they have a strong prospect in Pierre-Luc Dubois, who followed up his 10-goal, 45-point campaign in 2014-15 with a 45-goal and 99-point campaign as an 18-year-old. Already 6'2" and 200 lbs, Dubois dazzles with his ability to command the ice by proactively looking for passing and shooting lanes. He’s drawn favorable comparisons to Anze Kopitar as an ideal No. 1 center, though there’s debate as to Dubois’ actual defensive prowess. Be that as it may, his versatility and refined toolbox make him a tantalizingly mature forward who can play both center and wing.
