Jordan Binnington has agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with the St. Louis Blues.

Binnington's cap hit in the NHL will be $660,000 if he plays at that level. If he plays in the AHL then he'll earn $75,000 annually instead. He had a 2.71 GAA and .911 save percentage in 32 AHL contests last season.

Viktor Arvidsson has signed a seven-year, $29.75 million contract extension with the Nashville Predators.

That works out to be a $4.25 million annual cap hit. Arvidsson was a restricted free agent that had filed for arbitration. He had 31 goals and 61 points in 80 contests last season, so based on that performance this new deal could be an incredible steal. However, Arvidsson doesn't have a history to back those numbers up, so there is a danger that he could regress dramatically. In other words, the Predators are taking a risk here, but it's not a bad one to take.

Tommy Wingels feels he'd play though his fractured foot had the injury occurred during the season.

As recently reported, Wingels sustained the injury during his summer training. "I was doing some jumps and awkwardly rolled my ankle. It's just a little break there," Wingels explained. It's expected to take six-to-eight weeks to heal, so he should be fully recovered for training camp.

Tyler Gaudet has signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Arizona Coyotes.

Gaudet's cap hit for the 2017-18 campaign would be $650,000 if he plays in the NHL. Alternatively his annual salary when he's playing in the AHL would be $85,000, but he's been guaranteed a minimum total payout of $110,000 regardless of what combination of AHL and NHL service time he accumulates. He had six goals and 22 points in 62 AHL contests in 2016-17. He also registered an assist in four games with Arizona.

The Pittsburgh Penguins and Brian Dumoulin have a wide gap when it comes to their arbitration salary requests.

Dumoulin is requesting a salary of $4.35 million while the Penguins are countering at $1.95 million. He had a goal and 15 points in 70 contests while averaging 20:33 minutes per game. There's still time to avoid a hearing by coming to a compromise.

Austin Watson's requesting a $1.4 million contract in advance of his scheduled salary arbitration hearing.

Nashville has put in a counter offer of $700,000. The file of these requests is procedural and doesn't prevent the two sides from coming to a compromise. He had 17 points and 99 penalty minutes in 77 games last season.
Jul 22 - 11:11 AM

Jordan Martinook has signed a two-year, $3.6 million contract with the Arizona Coyotes.

Martinook's agent said that the two sides were "close" to a contract extension on Friday, so this agreement doesn't come as a surprise. This makes the arbitration hearing scheduled for Wednesday moot. He had 11 goals and 25 points in 77 games last season.

Nolan Patrick's facial infection was an abscess/boil.

Flyers GM Ron Hextall said that Patrick has been treated and is doing well. The facial infection kept him off the ice for a couple days. The timing was unfortunate because he was expected to resume skating as part of his recovery from abdominal surgery, but that timetable has been delayed a bit.

Marcus Foligno is looking forward to being on a team that has high expectations for the 2017-18 campaign.

Minnesota acquired Foligno from Buffalo in June. He hasn't gotten to participate in a playoff game so far in his six-season NHL career. "It’s been a lot of emotions. At first you get traded and you have to say goodbye to Buffalo. It’s a place I’ve been a long time and I know a lot of great people there," Foligno said. "At the same time, you’re going to a great organization in Minnesota, a great team that is obviously ready to win a Stanley cup. I think that’s the biggest thing. I’m excited to win and be a winner for a long time." Foligno is a restricted free agent, so he still needs a new contract, but he said he's "looking forward to being with the Wild for a while." He had 13 goals, 23 points, and 73 penalty minutes in 80 games in 2016-17.

Tomas Tatar is thrilled to have signed a four-year deal with the Detroit Red Wings.

"I can’t be more happy," Tatar said. "I’ve been on my phone talking to (friends) in the Detroit area and it’s just been real nice. I have a very special relationship with the Red Wings. I was a huge fan and it’s a really big relief for me to stay and continue my NHL career in Detroit." At times it looked like there wouldn't be such a favorable ending. At one point he suggested that if he had to go through an arbitration hearing then the 2017-18 campaign would likely be his last with the Red Wings. Detroit and Tatar weren't able to reach a compromise before that hearing, but they managed to agree to this new contract before the arbitrator ruled. Had the arbitrator ruled before the two sides were able to agree to terms on their own, then they wouldn't have been able to re-sign until January. That all said, Tatar noted that the arbitration wasn't "close to as bad as people were picturing" and noted that the Red Wings were great throughout the process.
