Thomas Vanek is set to hit the open market at the end of the week, and could be a valuable add to any team in need of scoring at the right price.

Vanek had 38 points in 48 games with the Red Wings before slowing down with 10 points in 20 games with the Florida Panthers last season. At 33 years old, Vanek isn't the point producer he used to be, but breaking the 50-point plateau is doable on the short term, sub $3-million contract he is likely to get.

At the NHL Draft, Stars GM Jim Nill said he "would like to sit down" with pending unrestricted free agent Patrick Sharp.

Sharp had 18 points in 48 games last season before was shut down in late March for hip surgery. The 35-year-old is coming off of a five year contract worth $5.9 million per season, and will certainly receive significantly less money or term. The Blackhawks' tendency to reacquire old players was reaffirmed last week in the Brandon Saad trade and perhaps heading back to Chicago could be a fit for Sharp if he can't come to an agreement with the Stars.

Korbinian Holzer has signed a two-year contract extension worth $1.8 million total with the Anaheim Ducks.

Holzer is 29 years old and couldn't crack the Ducks' lineup very often last season, while playing in just 32 games. There might be an opening for Holzer to see regular action in 2017-18 now that Clayton Stoner and Shea Theadore are on the Vegas Golden Knights.

Teemu Selanne is a strong candidate to headline the 2017 Hall of Fame class when it is officially announced on Monday.

Selanne won a Stanley Cup with Anaheim in 2007, the Calder Trophy in 1993 after an epic 132-point season, the Rocket Richard Trophy in 1999, the Masterton Trophy in 2006 and four Olympic medals. Selanne is 11th on the all-time list in goals (684) and 15th in points (1,457). Selanne and Daniel Alfredsson are notable first-time eligible candidates, along with a skilled throng of previously passed-over players like Mark Recchi, Paul Kariya and Dave Andreychuk.

The Washington Capitals are in the market for defensemen.

Washington lost Nate Schmidt to Vegas in the expansion draft and could watch Karl Alzner and Kevin Shattenkirk walk away as free agents. "We have a job opening," Capitals GM Brian MacLellan said. "We don't have a plan. We're going to look at young guys, look at free agents, maybe the trade market. We'll pursue all avenues and see what we can come up with." Washington still has several restricted free agents to deal with, which limits its cap situation. That will make it difficult to make significant additions this summer, but we'll have to see what opportunities are out there for the Capitals.

We'll find out soon if Daniel Alfredsson will be inducted into the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility.

The next round of inductees, which will be announced on Monday, will certainly include Teemu Selanne, but Alfredsson is a bit more of a question mark. Alfredsson finished with 444 goals and 1,157 points in 1,246 career games, which are remarkable numbers. That being said, he never won the Stanley Cup, never finished in the top-five in goals or assists and only appeared once in terms of points, which was 2005-06 when he finished fourth with 103 points. That was also the only season he recorded 90 or more points. While he never led the NHL, he was consistently a superb player and he was also the captain of Ottawa from 1999-2013. "Without a doubt, Daniel should be in the Hockey Hall of Fame," Senators GM Pierre Dorion said. "I think for all his accomplishments in the NHL and internationally, being a gold medalist and being one of the game’s best players at a certain time in his career, he definitely meets the criteria to be in the Hockey Hall of Fame."

Will Reilly had the distinction of being the very last player selected in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

Reilly was taken with the 217th overall pick. Reilly is almost 20 years old and had already been passed over in two previous drafts, so he didn't expect to be taken in this one either. The blueliner had two goals and 15 points in 35 NCAA games with R.P.I. last season. "I don’t really care [about going last], to be honest with you," Reilly said. "Someone’s got to go last. I’m just really happy to be drafted." If he needs inspiration though, he can always look to Patric Hornqvist, who was the last player taken in 2005 and has now won back-to-back championships with Pittsburgh.

Flyers GM Ron Hextall plans on fielding a younger team in 2017-18, but he doesn't see it as part of a rebuild.

"We’re getting younger, but rebuild? Absolutely not," Hextall said. "We have young players, and at some point here we have to open up opportunities for them to play. … We feel we have some young players who, if they’re not ready, they’re close. But rebuild? Absolutely not. Methodically getting younger? Yes." The Flyers have missed the playoffs in three of their last five seasons and haven't advanced past the first round in that span, so if they don't start turning things around a rebuild might be where they're ultimately headed. Their offense is a question mark, especially after trading away Brayden Schenn, and they might want to sign another goaltender. With that in mind, it will be interesting to see how they approach the rest of the offseason.
