Danny DeKeyser's arbitration hearing is set for Thursday, but an agreement on a long-term deal could be finalized before that.

"Ideally, Danny would like to do a longer-term deal. The club would like to do a longer-term deal," GM Ken Holland said. "Since they filed, this period of negotiation and time to do your brief for an arbitration hearing has mostly been about discussions on a longer-term deal. We talked Thursday, we talked Friday, we're going to talk again today." He can only receive a one-year deal if his case is heard.

Peter Holland has signed a one-year, $1.3 million deal with Toronto.

He tallied nine goals and 27 points in 65 games with the Leafs last season. Holland is projected to be a fourth-line player if he plays at the NHL level in 2016-17.

Jordan Staal could be the next captain of the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Hurricanes haven't had a captain since Feb. 28 following the trade of Jordan's brother, Eric. Justin Faulk is considered to be another strong contender to wear the "C," but Staal has more experience in the league and a Stanley Cup ring. He was also a key contributor last season, especially during the second half. The Hurricanes won't rush the decision and it's possible that they could enter the year with multiple assistants.

Tim Schaller believes he has a shot at a roster spot with Boston out of training camp.

"Boston was a good fit," said the New Hampshire native. "We think I'm better than the prospects, so we thought it was a good fit. Hopefully I can beat out a bunch of guys for a job." Schaller spent most of the 2015-16 campaign in the minors with Buffalo, while generating three points in 17 appearances with the Sabres when he was called up. If he manages to land a spot with the team then it would probably be a fourth-line role.

Brayden Schenn has agreed to a four-year contract with Philadelphia.

The new deal carries an annual average of $5.125 million. The two sides narrowly avoided salary arbitration. Schenn just had the most productive season of his NHL career in 2015-16. He compiled 26 goals and 59 points in 80 games.

Yanni Gourde has inked a one-year, two-way contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Ben Scrivens has indeed signed with Dinamo Minsk of the KHL.

Scrivens appeared in 15 games with Montreal last year, where he posted a 5-8-0 record with a 3.07 goals-against average and a .906 save percentage. He also skated in 11 outings in the AHL with Bakersfield and St. John's.

Petr Mrazek is seeking $5 million per season through arbitration.

Detroit is reportedly offering $2.7 million and $3.15 million over a two-year deal. Mrazek was taken team-elected arbitration and his hearing is set for July 27. The 24-year-old netminder became the top option between the pipes for the Red Wings in 2015-16 and he is due for a big raise in salary.

Kris Versteeg's move to Europe for next season appears to be final.

SC Bern of the National League A has announced that he will join the team on a one-year contract. It's surprising that Versteeg won't be playing in North America in 2016-17. In 550 career NHL contests, the 30-year-old forward has generated 131 goals and 313 points.

John McFarland has agreed to terms with SaiPa of the Finnish Elite League.

He will make the Liiga his home this season after he didn't receive a qualifying offer from the Panthers. McFarland appeared in three games with Florida last season and he produced 24 points in 56 matches with Portland of the AHL.

Colton Parayko's entry-level deal expires at the end of the 2016-17 season.

He impressed during his rookie campaign with nine goals and 33 points in 79 games. Parayko also added seven points from the back end in 20 playoff contests. The Blues believe in his potential, so his next contract could be a long-term deal rather than a bridge-type agreement.
Jul 25 - 9:00 AM

Stefan Noesen has re-signed with the Ducks on a one-year deal.

He will earn $600,000 at the NHL level or $70,000 in the AHL, according to generalfanager.com. Noesen had 10 goals and 32 points in 65 minor-league games with the San Diego Gulls last year. He has appeared in just two NHL contests over the last two seasons.
Jul 25 - 8:37 AM

Jhonas Enroth will reportedly sign with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Take this report with a grain of salt, but even without this story, it wouldn't be shocking if the Leafs ink Enroth. Toronto is in the market for a backup and Enroth would fill that role nicely. He had a 2.17 GAA and .922 save percentage in 16 games with Los Angeles last season.
Jul 24 - 10:13 PM

Frank Corrado has requested a $900,000 salary for 2016-17.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are countering with a two-way contract that would pay him $625,000 at the NHL level or $150,000 in the minors. Alternatively, they've also submitted a one-way contract with a value of $575,000. Corrado's arbitration hearing is scheduled for July 26.

Although he's going into the season as the Blues' clear No. 1 goaltender, Jake Allen feels he still needs to earn that spot.

Allen got a four-year, $17.4 million contract extension and the Blues dealt Brian Elliott this summer. "It was tough to make mistakes when Brian was around because one game — you had a bad game — he was right back in the net and vice versa with him and me," Allen said. "I think you get a little bit more leeway, I guess, now. But not a whole lot. Carter’s a great goalie and I’ve heard a lot of great things about him. I feel that I had to etch myself into the league consistently. Now that I’ve done that, I still have another place to go and prove I’m a legit No. 1 guy." Allen had a 2.35 GAA and .920 save percentage in 47 contests in 2015-16.
