The Edmonton Oilers are reportedly close to re-signing Kris Russell to a four-year, $16 million contract extension.

Russell's contract would also come with a full no-movement clause. Russell was limited to a goal and 13 points in 68 games in 2016-17, but he did average 21:13 minutes per game. From an advanced statistics perspective he also leaves something to be desired as his teams tend to do better in terms of Corsi and Fenwick when he's off the ice rather than on it. On the plus side, he does usually block over 200 shots per season, including 213 in 2016-17. His expiring contract was a one-year, $3.1 million deal.

The Arizona Coyotes have officially announced that they have parted ways with head coach Dave Tippett.

Tippett said he spoke with Coyotes owner Andrew Barroway and they mutually agreed that the time was right for him to move on. Tippett assumed the Coyotes' head coaching role at the start of the 2009-10 campaign and saw them through campaigns where the team's long-term future in Arizona was in constant doubt. The Coyotes made the Eastern Conference Final in 2012, which is the furthest the franchise has ever advanced in the playoffs. They haven't reached the postseason since, but in recent years they've been rebuilding. "Ultimately, we have some philosophical differences on how to build our team," said Barroway. This is another in a long line of major changes for the Coyotes including CEO Anthony LeBlanc and president of hockey operations Gary Drummond both stepping down and the announcement that the Coyotes won't re-sign long-time team captain Shane Doan.

The Arizona Coyotes and head coach Dave Tippett will reportedly be parting ways.

Tippett took over as the Coyotes' coach at the start of the 2009-10 campaign and has led them through difficult times of certainty. He helped them make the playoffs for three straight campaigns and the Coyotes reached the Western Conference Final in 2012, but they haven't been to the playoffs since. That being said, the Coyotes are a small market team and lately have been going through a rebuild, so blaming their lack of success on Tippett wouldn't be accurate, although he certainly wouldn't be the first coach fired for being at the helm of a team that simply wasn't ready to compete. That being said the term being used is parting ways, so perhaps this is something Tippett feels is best too. We'll have to wait and see what comes next.

Joffrey Lupul took a team physical after the Leafs' campaign and didn't pass it.

Lupul hasn't played since February 2016 when he had sports hernia surgery. He's entering the final season of his five-year, $26.25 million contract, but it's not clear if there's any chance of him being available at any point during the upcoming campaign.

The NHL is considering charging teams with a minor penalty if they bring forth an unsuccessful coaches' challenge.

The idea is to provide an incentive to coaches to not bother contesting borderline calls and instead only use the coaches challenge for what they feel were clear mistakes. As it is an unsuccessful coaches challenge does cost you your timeout, but given that the game has to stop to review the call, you kind of get that timeout anyways. At the same time, this will likely lead to scenarios where fans and teams alike get very upset when their team gives up a goal they felt wasn't fair, then they lose the coaches challenge and have to kill a penalty on top of that.

Dwight King won't be offered a new contract by the Montreal Canadiens.

King has completed a three-year, $5,850,000 deal and will test the free agent waters. He had nine goals and 16 points in 80 games between Los Angeles and Montreal in 2016-17. Montreal gave Los Angeles a conditional fourth round draft pick in exchange for King that would have become a third-round pick had they opted to re-sign King.
