The Canadian Hockey League has announced that Michael McNiven has been named as the goaltender of the year.

McNiven starred for the Owen Sound Attack, finishing the regular season with a 41-9-2 record with a 2.30 goals against average and .915 save percentage. McNiven went unselected in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft but signed an entry-level contract with the Montreal Canadiens. He will likely be competing with Zach Fucale for the backup goaltending position in the AHL next season.

Minnesota Wild GM Chuck Fletcher is not worried about rumors circulating that former 5th round pick Kirill Kaprizov is set to sign a long-term contract to stay with CSKA Moscow of the KHL.

"We’ve been in contact with his agent over the last couple weeks and we haven’t been made aware of anything," Fletcher said. "We’re operating under the assumption he’s got a year left. He’s going to play for CSKA, and then he’s interested in coming over and playing for the Wild for the ’18-’19 season. He’s a heck of a player. I think he’ll be ready to step in and be a good hockey player for us a year from now. That’s our expectation and our hope. We haven’t been notified of anything to the contrary." The Wild think he will be ready for the NHL when his contract expires in the KHL and Fletcher is running under the assumption that Kaprizov will be on his NHL roster during the 2018-19 season. Kaprizov led the World Junior Hockey Championship tournament with nine goals and set a KHL record for most points by a player under 20 with 42 in 49 games. It looks like the Wild got themselves a steal when they selected him in the 5th round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

Mike Helka of the Dallas Morning News has given Devin Shore a B+ grade for his 2016-17 season and see's potential for more next season.

He mentions how Shore has plenty of versatility and can be used in a number of different roles, something that is highly valued by coaches. His role will be highly dependant on the health of Mattias Janmark's knee and if Valeri Nichushkin returns from the KHL. If both were to return, Helka projects Shore to play plenty on the 4th line but would likely slide onto Spezza's wing if the pair were not ready to return. Helka's final projection has Shore totalling 40 points next season. Keep on eye on Shore's situation during training camp.

After failing to acquire Cam Talbot and settling for Antti Niemi, Stars GM Jim Nill has said that Bishop was his 'Plan A' this time around.

"We've been watching Ben for a while," said Stars general manager Jim Nill, who has been rumored to have interest in Bishop for more than a year. "There are only so many elite goalies in the league. When you have a chance to acquire one of those goalies, it became a priority for us." After failed experiments with Antti Niemi, Kari Lehtonen and Jack Campbell, Stars fans will be hoping their goaltending issues will finally come to an end now that Bishop has signed a six-year deal with the team. The Stars will likely buy-out the final year of Niemi's deal if Vegas chooses not to select him in the upcoming expansion draft. The Stars have a chance to return as one of the NHL's best teams if they get solid goaltending in the upcoming NHL campaign.

The Chicago Blackhawks have announced that Michal Kempny has signed a one-year contract extension with the club.

After crossing the pond from the KHL, Kempny picked up two goals and eight points in 50 games this season. He showed some potential and finished the season as one of the Blackhawks with the best possession numbers. "Michal’s style of play is an asset to our defense," general manager Stan Bowman said in a statement. "He is the type of player who will continue to improve now that he has transitioned to the National Hockey League. We look forward to his continued development on the ice for the Blackhawks." Kempny does not warrant any fantasy consideration next season.

Chris Tanev is attracting plenty of interest from other NHL GMs, but Jim Benning is reluctant to move the talented defender.

"I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't listen and see if it (trade) is worth it, but it's hard to find good defensemen," said Benning. "Especially defensemen who are mobile and move the puck. I'm not shopping Tanev or bringing his name up in conversations with other GMs. They bring up his name. Unless it would make sense for our future, I'm not trading Chris. He means so much to our team. And we're not looking to do anything with Alex (Edler)." Tanev and Edler had injury issues in 2016-17, but it appears the teams still has confidence in their abilities to bounce back.

Speaking to the media, Detroit Red Wings GM Ken Holland said he is impressed with Tyler Bertuzzi's play during the AHL playoffs.

"We've had a lot of players who have played well," Holland said. "You look at Tyler Bertuzzi. He has had a great playoff - he's had three great playoffs in a row. Very impressive statistics for a young player." Bertuzzi failed to pick up any points in seven NHL contest this season, but did pick up 37 in 48 AHL games and another 12 in 12 playoff games so far. Holland will likely have a few holes to fill at the start of next season and Bertuzzi might make a full-time jump to the NHL. He is a name to keep an eye on during training camp.

Vancouver GM Jim Benning wants to bring back pending unrestricted free agent Ryan Miller.

If that happens then Miller and Jacob Markstrom would probably share action in the crease, while Thatcher Demko gets more time to develop in the minors. "As we're transitioning these young players into our lineup, I feel that if we have solid goaltending on a night-to-night basis, we can be competitive," Benning said. "There's no worse feeling than trying to develop young players and get them up and going when you know you don't have a chance to win. Ryan and Jacob have a healthy relationship because they're competitive and respect each other. We have something to offer Ryan that he already knows. We've got some positives for him and if that’s the route we go, that's why we're doing it." Miller just completed a three-year, $18 million contract.
