Although Martin Brodeur hasn't signed yet, it's still very unlikely that he would return to New Jersey as a player.

New Jersey Devils GM Lou Lamoriello said that the team and Brodeur have come to an understanding that they're both moving on. "It's a progression thing – that is Marty knowing what it is to be a No. 1 goaltender and to have that feeling and that's exactly what he feels Cory needs," Lamoriello said. "We feel the same way. We went through one year a different way. So, I think it's time to go forward, but never negate what Marty has brought nor was the door ever shut. It was a mutual understanding of what's best for both parties and Marty will always be a Devil." Brodeur will probably rejoin the Devils' organization in a front office capacity after he hangs up his skates.

The Detroit Red Wings have hired Jim Hiller to serve as an assistant coach.

Hiller is a former WHL coach of the year, but this will be his first opportunity to serve as an NHL coach. He's a former player and while he spent the better part of his career in Europe, he did finish with eight goals and 20 points in 63 games with the Los Angeles Kings, New York Rangers, and Detroit Red Wings. "There's always challenges when you're a coach," Hiller said. "I did play in the NHL, so I kind of understand the mentality of what it's like to be an NHL player and the type of feedback those players want and need." Hiller's focus will be the team's offense and forwards.

Andy Greene's new contract with the Devils is a five-year, $25 million contract.

Greene still has one season left on his four-year, $12 million deal before his new agreement will take effect. He had 32 points in 82 games last season, making it the second time in the last four 82-game seasons that he's breached the 30-point mark.

Nick Spaling has filed request for an arbitrator to award him a $2.65 million contract for the 2014-15 campaign.

The Penguins are countering with a $1.65 million deal. Spaling and Pittsburgh will face the arbitrator on Thursday unless the two sides can agree to terms before then.

Andy Greene has agreed to a long-term deal with the New Jersey Devils.

The Devils didn't disclose the terms of the agreement. Greene had eight goals and 32 points in 82 games in 2013-14. Greene still has one year left on his previous deal, so he will come with a $3 million annual cap hit in 2014-15.

Teemu Selanne's hockey career might not be over after all.

While Selanne won't be returning to the Anaheim Ducks for another season, he is reportedly entertaining the possibility of playing for Jokerit, a Finnish squad that will make its KHL debut in 2014-15. That would complete the circle of Selanne's hockey career as he got his start with Jokerit Helsinki back when they played in the Finnish league before breaking into the NHL.

Dwight King's new deal with the Los Angeles Kings is worth $5.85 million.

In other words, King will come with a $1.95 million annual cap hit, which is a substantial increase from his previous annual salary of $750,000. The Kings don't have any restricted free agents left to sign and while they're close to the cap, they should be fine in that regard.

Matt Halischuk has inked a one-year, two-way contract with Winnipeg.

Halischuk's new deal comes with a $725,000 annual cap hit. He had five goals and 10 points in 46 games with the Jets in 2013-14.

Dwight King has agreed to a three-year contract extension with Los Angeles.

The financial terms of the deal aren't known. King and the Kings were set to meet with an arbitrator on August 1, but that's now unnecessary. He had 15 goals and 30 points in 77 contests in 2013-14.

Darren Archibald is encouraged by Canucks GM Jim Benning desired to add more "meat-and-potatoes" players to the team's lineup.

"That's the definition of my game," Archibald said. "I'm not out there trying to do anything fancy or make highlight-reel plays. My job is to be strong on the forecheck and bring pucks to the net." It wasn't long ago Archibald was struggling to even establish himself in the AHL, but he's coming off a strong season where he made his NHL debut and went on to record three points in 16 games with Vancouver.

Nail Yakupov will switch from No. 64 to 10 in 2014-15.

Yakupov has traditionally worn No. 10 in honor of Pavel Bure, but he couldn't use the number when the Oilers' drafted him because Shawn Horcoff had it. When Horcoff was traded to the Dallas Stars, he gave Yakupov his blessing to take his number, but Yakupov wanted to allow some time to pass before taking him up on that offer. "I said, 'Horc, no offense, but the fans are going to miss you and they know you played with No. 10 for a long time, so I'll wait a little bit and then I'll take it,'" Yakupov said.

P.K. Subban has asked an arbitrator to provide him with a $8.5 million annual salary.

Montreal has countered with a $5.25 million offered and has specified that they would like the arbitrator to provide Subban with a one-year deal. The hearing is scheduled for Friday, but of course both sides can make it moot if they're able to agree to terms before that date. Subban's demands aren't surprising given that he's coming off of a great season and won the Norris Trophy in 2013. He's experienced an interest in staying with the Canadiens for the long haul, but he won't come cheap.
