The Anaheim Ducks have re-sign Jesse Blacker to a one-year, two-way deal.

The Ducks acquired Blacker from the Toronto Maple Leafs in November. He will come with an annual cap hit of $550,000 at the NHL level.

Matt Clark has agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with Anaheim.

Clark can earn $550,000 if he spends the season with the Ducks, but we doubt that will happen. He had two assists in 23 AHL contests in 2013-14.

Derek Grant has signed a one-year, two-way contract with Ottawa.

That agreement makes Grant's arbitration hearing date of July 24 moot. He had two assists in 20 contests with the Senators last season.

Micheal Haley has signed a one-year deal with the San Jose Sharks.

Haley would be a league leader in penalty minutes if he ever spent a full season on a team's fourth line. However, he's far more likely to spend the bulk of the 2014-15 campaign in the minors.
Jul 10 - 7:22 PM

David Moss has reportedly signed a two-year deal with a Swiss club.

Moss still has a one-week window of opportunity to sign with an NHL team though, so nothing's for sure yet. He had eight goals and 22 points in 79 games with the Arizona Coyotes last season.
Jul 10 - 6:59 PM

Rinat Valiev has agreed to a three-year, entry-level contract with Toronto.

Valiev had 28 points and 68 penalty minutes in 55 WHL games in 2013-14. He was taken with the 68th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
Jul 10 - 5:53 PM

Trevor Smith has inked a one-year deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Smith had four goals and nine points in 28 games in 2013-14. He's a nice depth forward and the Leafs shouldn't hesitate to call him up in the event of an injury.
Jul 10 - 5:51 PM

Brett Connolly has agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Connolly excelled in the minors last season with 21 goals and 57 points in 66 games. He only logged 11 contests with Tampa Bay though and averaged 12:01 minutes in those games. He's had a hard time living up to the strong start he had to his career, but he's still young and has plenty of upside. This deal offers him a chance to prove that and potentially get a more lucrative contract next summer.
Jul 10 - 5:09 PM

Daniel Cleary has agreed to a one-year deal with the Detroit Red Wings.

Cleary will earn $1.5 million in base salary, but he can make an extra $1 million in bonuses. He had four goals and eight points in 52 games in 2013-14.
Jul 10 - 4:44 PM

Scott Hannan has agreed to a one-year, $1 million contract with the San Jose Sharks.

Hannan had 12 points and 55 penalty minutes in 56 games in 2013-14. It's likely that Hannan's role with the Sharks will be limited next season. At the age of 35, he's more of a mentor for the team's younger players than anything else.
Jul 10 - 4:29 PM

Jayson Megna has signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Penguins.

The fact that Megna only got a two-way deal illustrates that he still has a lot of work to do to cement his role with the Penguins. He's not a lock to make the team's opening game roster after scoring five goals and nine points in 36 games in 2013-14.
Jul 10 - 3:59 PM

Philip Samuelsson has agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with the Penguins.

Samuelsson will earn the league minimum of $550,000 if he plays at the NHL level. He had 22 points and 66 penalty minutes in 64 AHL games in 2013-14.
Jul 10 - 3:57 PM

The Colorado Avalanche aren't likely to re-sign Ryan O'Reilly before his arbitration date of July 23.

The two sides have been negotiating, but they seem to be at an impasse. If the Avalanche can't get O'Reilly to agree to a long-term contract, then it wouldn't be surprising to see them trade him rather than risk losing him for nothing when he finally becomes an unrestricted free agent.

Jerome Samson has agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Samson had 27 goals and 56 points in 68 NHL games in 2013-14. He might enjoy a stint or two with the Lightning over the course of the season, but he isn't expected to secure a regular spot with the team.
Jul 10 - 2:53 PM

Jacob Markstrom has denied a recent report that he requested a trade after the Canucks signed Ryan Miller.

Vancouver might try to trade Markstrom regardless because he's set to come with a $1.2 million cap hit in 2014-15 despite the fact that he's currently projected to be the team's third goaltender. If he does stay in Vancouver then he'll have a hard time getting starts against Miller and Eddie Lack.
