Atlanta has added free agent pivot Marty Reasoner. A little injury prone, he does have some offensive skill – he just hasn't been asked to use it since he was practically a rookie. In Atlanta, if Little falls flat… what choice would they have? If he can have a 75-game year, he'll probably set career highs (40 points or so).

 

St. Louis has signed defenseman Andy Wozneiwski. 

 

Max Pacioretty, ranked 92 on my fantasy prospects list, will forego the remainder of his college eligibility and turn pro. He signed a three-year entry-level deal with the Habs. Although he shoots up my rankings with this news, as a power forward type of player he will be a few years hitting his stride. 

 

Curtis Brown has signed to play in the Swiss League. 

 

The Hockey News is reporting that the KHL will uphold the Radulov contract. The KHL will fight the NHL and basically throw their agreement out the window. It will be open season on players in both leagues.

 

The Wild have re-signed Clayton Stoner.

 

The Preds have re-signed Kevin Klein to a two-year contract.

 

The Isles have re-signed Sean Bergenheim. Look for him to benefit under a new coach.

 

The Blues have re-signed Jeff Woywitka. 

 

The Oilers signed Shawn Horcoff to a monster extension – six years, $33 million.

The Kings will announce that they have indeed hired Terry Murray to be their coach.

 

Interesting signing – the Flames have brought Jamie Lundmark back across the pond. Well, not really – he started last year in Russia, but finished it in the AHL. It is unknown whether the deal was one-way or two-way… likely two-way.

 

The Thrashers have signed Kari Lehtonen. No terms have been released.

 

The Rangers have re-signed Nigel Dawes.

 

The Kings have signed Matt Moulson, Erik Ersberg, Joe Piskula and Gabe Gauthier. I can see Ersberg giving LaBarbara a run for his money this season.

 

The Habs have signed Ryan O'Byrne to a three-year deal. They have also signed Shawn Belle and depth forward Mike Glumac.

 

Leaf farmhand Derrick Walser has signed to play in the KHL.
