Bode Wilde is not going to attend the University of Michigan next season.

According to TSN's Bob McKenzie, Wilde will see what his non-school options are following the 2018 NHL Entry Draft. Saginaw owns his OHL rights and could be an option. The 18-year-old defender played for the USNTDP Juniors of the USHL as well as the U.S. National U18 Team last season.

Barry Trotz has decided to step down as coach of the Washington Capitals.

"Barry Trotz informed the organization today of his decision to resign as head coach of the Washington Capitals," said the team in a statement. "We are obviously disappointed by Barry's decision, but would like to thank Barry for all his efforts the past four years and for helping bring the Stanley Cup to Washington. Barry is a man of high character and integrity and we are grateful for his leadership and for all that he has done for our franchise." Trotz has been the head coach of the Capitals for the last four seasons and he helped guide the team to a Stanley Cup championship in his final year behind the bench of the club. An automatic two-year extension activated when he won the Cup, but the value of the deal was below market value. Trotz and the Capitals reportedly couldn't come to terms on an extension and he will be granted permission to speak to other organizations as a free agent following his resignation.

Barring a trade, Pittsburgh won't have a first-round pick for a fourth straight year at the NHL Draft.

The Penguins will have to wait until pick No. 53 at the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, but they are confident they could find another contributor. Pittsburgh has been successful in the past with selections of Jake Guentzel (3rd round, 2013 Draft), Bryan Rust (3rd, 2010) and Matt Murray (3rd, 2012). "It's huge to find players like that in the later rounds that have contributed to the success the Penguins have had here in the past and hopefully in the future as well," said Pittsburgh director of amateur scouting Patrik Allvin.

Columbus feels Artemi Panarin exceeded expectations in 2017-18.

Columbus GM Jarmo Kekalainen praised Panarin's leadership qualities and how he sets a great example for his teammates. "He doesn't have to say anything when he comes to the rink every day with a smile on his face and works and has that 100 percent commitment - and then shows up for every game too, and produces results," said Kekalainen. "We've been very fortunate to have him and he's been a great addition to our group." Panarin accounted for 27 goals and a career-high 82 points in 81 games during his first season with the Blue Jackets.

Columbus GM Jarmo Kekalainen was pleasantly surprised to see Pierre-Luc Dubois step up in 2017-18.

"Well, I think with guys like that, 19-years old, you're kind of surprised every night when he grabs onto more and more responsibility and takes on more and more challenges," said Kekalainen. You want to expect it, you want it to happen, but you can never really put a timetable on it." Columbus had big expectations for Dubois after selecting him third overall in the 2016 NHL Draft, but the team probably didn't expect him to become a first-line center in 2017-18. Dubois registered 20 goals and 48 points in 82 games during his rookie campaign.

Zach Werenski (shoulder) is still expected to be healthy for next season.

Werenski underwent shoulder surgery in early May after he played hurt for at least half of the year. He was given a five-to-six month timetable for his recovery, so if he isn't ready for the start of the campaign then he should available shortly afterward. "He played with a brace that he could hardly move with and tried to shoot with that brace. When your arm moves, like, this much, it's pretty hard, battling for loose pucks in the corner," said Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen. "It affects everything, and he didn't ever complain or use it as an excuse. He just kept playing through it and playing through it, and now he'll be healthy for next year."

Alex Broadhurst has signed a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Quinn Hughes took part in the 2018 IIHF World Championship and feels confident going into the draft that he can compete at the NHL level.

"I did a really good job at the world championships showing I can play against stronger and more physical guys," said Hughes. "I feel confident with my game and how it was over there, so there aren't any doubts or questions at this point. But still lots to improve on, for sure." The diminutive defender has a great offensive skill set blended with superb skating and great on-ice vision. Hughes is projected to be at least a top-10 pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.
