Canucks GM Jim Benning is receiving a fine for his comments on Steven Stamkos and P.K. Subban.

With regards to Stamkos, Benning is being punished for saying that he intended to contact Stamkos' agent to express the Canucks' interest in signing the star forward. The NHL doesn't permit teams to publicly express their interest in signing a player that's still under contract with another team. With Subban, Benning revealed that he contacted the Canadiens in an attempt to acquire the defenseman.

Auston Matthews is projected to be Toronto's third-line center at the start of the 2016-17 campaign.

Coach Mike Babcock plans to ease the rookie pivot into the fold by placing him behind Tyler Bozak and Nazem Kadri on the depth chart. Keep in mind that line combinations will probably change over the course of the season. Matthews is expected to be an impact player in the NHL after being selected first overall in the 2016 Draft.

The price to acquire Kevin Shattenkirk is very high, according to Bruins GM Don Sweeney.

"The acquisition cost was extremely high, and rightfully so because they are difficult players to have and develop, and when you have them, you might as well maximize the asset in return," Sweeney said Friday night after the first round of the draft. The Oilers have been unwilling to meet the asking price as well. Blues GM Doug Armstrong won't give Shattenkirk away, so it wouldn't be surprising if the offensive defender is with St. Louis at the start of 2016-17.

The Stars feel comfortable going into the season with Kari Lehtonen and Antti Niemi as their goaltenders, according to GM Jim Nill.

The Dallas netminders shared time in the crease in 2015-16 and neither of them particularly shined even though they both posted 25-win seasons. The Stars should be looking for an upgrade in goal even if Nill won't admit it publicly.

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.

Mathieu Perreault and the Winnipeg Jets are interested in working out a contract extension.

Perreault had nine goals and 41 points in 71 games with the Jets last season before a concussion sidelined him for the end of the year. He will play the final season of his current contract in 2016-17 and can't sign an extension until July 1.

Conner Bleackley has been selected in the fifth round of the 2016 NHL Draft by the St. Louis Blues.

He was a first-round pick of Colorado (No. 23 overall) in the 2014 class, but he went back into the draft after the Coyotes chose not to sign him. Bleackley was acquired by Arizona in the trade that sent Mikkel Boedker to the Avalanche. He had 13 goals and 46 points in 55 games for the WHL's Red Deer Rebels in 2015-16.

Trevor Lewis has inked a four-year deal with Los Angeles worth $8 million.

Scott Harrington has been traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The Leafs obtained Kerby Rychel in the deal and the Blue Jackets will get a fifth-round draft pick if Harrington is put on waivers and he is claimed by another team. If he clears then the condition isn't fulfilled. Harrington played in 15 games with the Maple Leafs in 2015-16 and 17 with the team's AHL affiliate.
